Mortal Showdown is an action packed thriller sending the reader on a kaleidoscopic race through violence, sex, scamming and anti-scamming, political upheaval and murder.
Michael (Misha) – a Ukrainian oligarch who was rapidly climbing the Forbes rich list, wakes from a coma caused by an assassination attempt and realizes that he's in the thick of a multilayered attack on him and his business empire. Making things even worse - among his numerous adversaries is one of Russia’s most influential strongmen. From rich and powerful, Michael very quickly becomes a fugitive, struggling for survival. Counting on his wits and a handful of loyal associates, he searches for a way to even the score with each of his adversaries and to save his country from the Russian bear’s grasp.
In order to have the slightest chance in a face-off with his prime nemesis, Michael needs to attack head on, undertaking the greatest risk of his entire life. Unfortunately, the dangerous mission goes wrong from the very beginning...  

 
Mortal Showdown by Nik Krasno

Mortal ShowdownHe awoke from a bullet-induced coma to find his world in chaos and his life still up for grabs from the sharpest shooter. Mikhail’s fall from grace and financial power is like a freefall from the top of the Empire State Building and now is his time to play catch up and to plan his retaliation, one brutal step at a time. In his world, Mikhail is used to powerful enemies, but nothing prepared him to have to take down a powerful Russian strongman with little to no backing. The life’s breath of his beloved Ukraine hangs in the balance, as does the life of Mikhail’s empire and his kidnapped brother. The Puppet Master seems to be pulling all of the strings, will Mikhail be able to strike faster enough to cut them without becoming another statistic in the battle for power, control and untold wealth?

Once again, politics, greed and the quest for absolute control devalue human life and take us to the seedier side of life.

Mortal Showdown by Nik Krasno continues Misha’s tale with more grit, more danger and more cold-hearted machinations. Mr. Krasno knows how to weave a tale filled with high tension and evil intent. Once again, the lines are blurred between good and evil as flawed characters fight to divide and conquer or to survive and regroup as old politics attempt to overpower the new warriors in industry in a small country still adjusting to its freedom.

I received this copy from Nik Krasno in exchange for my honest review.
