THE GUARDIANS OF STAVKA: THE STORYLINE
For sixty years rumours raged on Canada's west coast that a large gold cache
belonging to the murdered Tsar Nikolas II was lost in a sunken ship.
In 1979 when a weekend hunter discovers an ingot in a remote mountain cave it
triggers a flurry of international gold seekers. The Tsar's cache of 110 tonnes
is worth three billion dollars.
Dimitri Komadze, deputy chairman of the dreaded Russian KGB seeks to correct
his father's fatal mistake in losing the gold; Alex Plastiras, a disgraced US
Marine now working as a mercenary for exiled Romanov interests, launches an
airborne unit to get the gold.
Then there's Harry Travis a reluctant Canadian Secret Service operative who
finds people are not what they seem-in fact some are either ruthless lovers
or deadly killers-or both!
Colonel Ilya Orlov, a guard's officer with sworn loyalties to a long-dead
Tsar, founded a secret community called "Stavka" where the old Russian flag
still flies. His beautiful granddaughter, part Russian, part Native Indian,
has trained a bald eagle to hunt and kill anyone on demand.
As he battles to pursue the treasure Travis discovers there is a dangerous
secret hidden with the gold known simply to British and Canadian Intelligence
as the "Nikolas Consignment."
This historical novel while set in the Canada of 1979 has a storyline weaving
through actions in Chile, Sydney Australia, Prague, San Francisco, the Kola
Peninsula in Northern Russia and Gori, Georgia, the birthplace of Joseph
Author Robert Egby lived in Kamloops and the Lower Mainland of British
Columbia for thirty years working as a journalist, editor, award-winning
broadcaster and public relations executive. He wrote the original manuscript
in 1980 while in Vancouver, taking time out to explore the incredible beautiful
and dangerous region of Canada's west coast where much of the action takes
place. He completed revisions this past year. He now lives in upstate New York.
The Guardians of Stavka is his second novel. The first was "Pentadaktylos: Love, Promises and Patriotism in the Last Days of Colonial Cyprus." The thrillers are available on Amazon and at all leading bookstores.
Author: "Thunder Inlet" in the Guardians of Stavka was inspired by a real place in British Columbia. It's known as the Skookumchuck Narrows. We hiked three miles to perform a talk and a book reading. Here's how it turned out: A book reading on location. If you get chance to visit Skookumchuck it's worth the effort. Enjoy!
International readers will find "The Guardians of Stavka" at the The Book Depository.
