2012 Amazon/Kindle bestseller! Based on true historic eventsBegin your secret love affair with Russia! GOLD TRAIN is a fast-paced thrill ride, complete with deadly conspiracy, FSB spies, dangerous romance and an unexpected mystical element. Think Jason Bourne & Russia House fusion with a mystical twist...  
1918: Civil War in Russia. The entire Gold Reserve of the Russian Empire vanishes without a trace. Today: Jade Snow, international journalist and stay-at-home mom turned spy extraordinaire, travels to Russia to reconnect with the half-forgotten country of her ancestors and investigate tantalizing mystery of the Gold Train. Instead, she lands in the midst of a deadly international conspiracy threatening to change the fate of one of the world's most powerful nations, and finds forbidden love that she had never looked for. Embroiled in a net of intrigue, secrets and royal glamor, and refusing to be a pawn in a struggle of forces beyond her control, Jade must choose between her worst friends and best enemies... and the world's future just might depend on her choice!  
A close-up look at Russia's turbulent history and its fast-evolving present, this spy thriller is in fact a love story. Yes, there is an intense love intrigue between the two protagonists, Jade and Alexei. However, there is also something much more profound. The secret love developing between Jade and Alexei is a symbol of the forbidden and confusing love affair, which has always existed between some people in the West and Russia. The mysterious Russian soul and the mystical attraction of this country is what Jade experiences fully during her Russian adventure  
Those who are looking for more Russia-bashing - you won't find it here. You will find an honest look at Russia's history and today's challenges. And you will find a respectful, albeit straight, look at Russia's authorities and FSB from someone who grew up in Russia. Gold Train is a fast-paced thrill-ride adventure based on real historic and recent events. As such, it is geared towards all those who want to know the truth and who are not afraid to look it in the eye!  
Genre: historical mystery, geopolitical/spy thriller, action/adventure. For readers 16+ due to a couple of steamy (but tasteful) romantic scenes. NO adult language or overt violence. Spectacular setting and tons of valuable information about history and Russia. Note: While each book in the Accidental Spy Adventure Series stands on each own, it is advisable to read them sequentially to fully appreciate plot twists and character development
