The lives of five foreign nationals working in Luritania (in the north-western corner of Europe) who meet once a month at Lenfindi Airport passenger terminal to discuss ‘matters of levity and enterprises of great pith and moment’ are derailed by the chance discovery of a briefcase full of classified Secret Service documents. Their actions are the catalyst to a shattering sequence global and personal events that leaves none of them unaffected and shows that in our super-connected world normal rules of cause and effect cease to apply.

With a contemporary setting and themes, The Milan Briefcase is a complex and multi-layered literary espionage thriller that takes a while to get going but is a rewarding read in the end.

The Milan Briefcase is Graham Fulbright’s 4th book. He has written two other thrillers, The Man with the Charmed Life and The Khazar Codex and one satirical title, Driving Mad.

The Milan Briefcase by Graham Fulbright

The Milan Briefcase unfolds against the backdrop of the continuing, all but forgotten war in eastern Ukraine and an ailing Russian economy whose helmsmen are losing the electorate's faith in their competence. It is a tale of machinations within clandestine corridors of power, where manipulation of public opinion is just one of the ruses, together with systematic dumbing down, employed by Machiavellian puppet masters towards achieving unpalatable ends. When classified Secret Service documents left inadvertently in a London minicab fall into private hands and are whisked away to a quiet European principality, the fuse is lit to a chain of events setting British and American intelligence services on a collision course against six individuals unaware of the significance of what they have uncovered. After three of the protagonists collude in a major bank robbery, not one of the six escapes the line of fire, whether it be in the form of death lurking in Gaudi's Sagrada Familia, Hezbollah pitted against the Islamic State in Lebanon, indictment for conspiring with jihadists, a suicide bomber in Lagos, a disastrous military offensive in Afghanistan or pursuit beyond Tiananmen Square. But perhaps some are prepared to pay the price.

Publisher's Website

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
