Travelsapien Endorses - Kazakhstan 'Radioactive Jane'

Another great read from Hunter Blacke. This set of books always brings into the general line of the story almost a Travelogue look at the locations. This gives the reader an inside seat on the locations where they can identify with the Operatives, Spies and Assassins. Like it as a Travel Book. Sort of.

TRAVELSAPIEN ENDORSES - ARMENIA CAPER

 
 
Great read on Kindle Amazon. Having visited Armenia during the time this novel is set in I can attest to the fact the accuracy is amazing. As to the story I understand it is a creative licence in motion. Nice mix. I think this fits into a Travel Journal of sorts. Gives a time capsule look at a little country that went through some very difficult times. Congratulations to Armenia for making a super hero recovery.

The 2nd in the Hunter Blacke Chronicles just published. This one takes place in Armenia. Hunter hooks up with his old friends to unravel a plot to sabotage the games with cheating, manipulation, and deaths. Couple to this is another level of criminality with countries using the games as a cover to engage in covert Arms dealing. Throughout this mirage a new associate joins in to assist however they are very shadowy, clandestine, and brings a totally wild card to the pack. Good historical stuff included rounds out the reads as entertainment and somewhat educating about a country few know anything about. Definitely a Travelsapien recommendation to visit. Beautiful place.
