From TV broadcaster Lou Dobbs and award-winning
author James O. Born comes Putin's Gambit, an
international financial thriller about a KGB plot to use a
series of terrorist attacks as cover for a Russian military
incursion into Estonia.
Adjusting to civilian life has not been easy for former
Marine Derek Walsh. As he navigates a brutal job on Wall
Street and a challenging romance, he wonders if he could
be doing more with his life. When an inexplicable $200
million dollar money transfer is made on his computer, he
is thrust into the world of international terror, and the
global economy is knocked off its hinges.
On the other side of the Atlantic, a dangerous alliance has
formed. Radical Islamists and Russian extremists have set
the wheels in motion for Russia to assert its power in
Europe. The US President has proven to be weak on
foreign policy, the military is stretched too thin, and
Vladimir Putin judges this to be the time for Russia to
regain its Soviet Empire. Troops mass on the Estonian
border, waiting for the order to move.
The FBI believes Walsh was involved in the money
transfer, and a group of Russians are intent on killing him.
As New Yorkers are outraged upon learning of the illegal
money transfer, and the world economy crashes after a
series of terrorist attacks, Walsh and his Marine buddies
are the only ones that can keep the world from spinning off

“Delving deep past today’s headlines, Lou Dobbs and
James O. Born a captivating tale that’s at once thrilling
and chilling.” ****―W.E.B. Griffin & William E.
Butterworth IV, New York Times bestselling authors of
the Clandestine Operations series
“A thrill-packed and lightning-paced powerhouse of a novel
based around a Kremlin plot to retake lost territory by
partnering with Islamic terrorists. Former Marine and now
a Wall Street “financial grunt,” Derek Walsh is an utterly
authentic hero, and his fascinating collection of friends, all
combat vets like Walsh himself, help propel the action
forward at a breakneck pace. Putin’s Gambit is a fun ride
that also paints a plausible and timely scenario that I just
hope remains a work of fiction, and does not instead show
up as fact in tomorrow’s news!” *****―Mark Greaney,
New York Times bestselling author of Tom Clancy True
Faith and Allegiance and Gunmetal Gray
“An engaging, knowing thriller of the first rank. Written
with deep knowledge of global security issues and the
world's precarious financial system―and with a timely
grasp of Vladimir Putin―this is a novel worth moving to
the top of your reading list. A stand-out!”*****―Ralph
Peters, New York Times bestselling author of The Damned
“Riveting, powerful, thoroughly enjoyable.”**** ―Col.
