The cold-blooded killing of Alexei impacts the Russian presidential election. That in turn begins the potential toppling of the current delicate balance of global power like a series of dominoes if secrets are revealed. David Olen travels to Europe to prevent an international collapse. He knows first hand of the deal set in the 1970s between a clandestine American government agency, the Soviet Union, and the Vatican that chose the Pope. If the agreement surfaces global relationships and confidence could be destroyed.
On first look, readers will brush aside PROTOKOL: A NOVEL OF INTERNATIONAL INTRIGUE as the imagination of the authors. However, as the audience digs deeper into the action filled plot with ever increasing suspense, the readers will realize the premise is plausible and the details make one wonder did it really happen that way? The only reason not to believe it happened that way is inductive as this book is published with the writers still alive. Conspiracy thriller fans will love this exciting tale that substantiates many beliefs and demand Eugene Golub and Quinton Skinner look at Yalta next.
The story begins in 1998, GlobusBank is partnering with the American firm Olen Europe, headed by David Olen, international real estate developer, to renovate a historical building. The sudden cold-blooded killing of Alexei Sokolov, GlobusBank Official, in St. Petersbug, Russia starts to upset the current delicate balance of global power. David Olen travels from his home in Chicago to Europe to prevent a pack made in the 1970s between an American government agency, the Soviet Union, and the Vatican that selected the pope from resurfacing and putting his life and reputation at risk. The story describes how high-profile political figures, successful businessmen, and criminals may have become reluctant partners in their quest for power and money to reshape the course of Western history.
The author, Eugene Golub, is the founder and Chairman of Golub & Company. In 1989, Golub & Company entered the international marketplace through its subsidiary, Golub-Europe, now GE Capital Golub-Europe, L.L.C., a Company whose members are affiliates of Golub & Company and GE Capital Corporation. That entity was the first major U.S. real estate company to undertake development projects in Central and Eastern Europe and Russia just prior to their re-emergence as market-driven economies. With Golub's vast real estate experience, this exciting story of international intrigue will force you to review events in history and perhaps change the way you think and ask---could this really happen?
