PERFECT RECIPE FOR A THRILLER
Mix together: Knowing when you are going to die ...
Guns ... and an Election. Add Russians and stir.
In this fast-paced sequel to Final Notice, master storyteller Van Fleisher weaves a plot that is simultaneously realistic, surrealistic... and totally engrossing. Once again, it is set in today’s chaotic political climate and gun-crazy culture. Once again, it features the “only slightly” sci-fi watch – the VT2 – that monitors blood chemistry so accurately that it can predict the wearer’s death within 10, 20, or 30 days.
But while Final Notice asked the question: “What would you do if you knew – for certain – that you had a couple of weeks to live?” ... Final Act asks: “What might others do if they knew that you only had a couple of weeks to live?” And when those “others” include Bratva (the Russian Mafia) and the SVR (formerly the KGB), you have a page-turner that turns “what if” into “what is.”
Final Act picks up the VT2 story during a presidential election year. Dr. Vijay Patel, the watch’s inventor, is stunned and horrified by the havoc his creation has brought about and works in cooperation with Zoe Brouet of the FBI to stem the violence associated with the VT2. The danger to everyone – especially the presidential candidates – is palpable. Crafted with suspense, dark humor, irony, and a dash of romance, Final Act casts a clear light on the deep divisions within our country, divisions that have been widened and exploited by a malignant foreign power.
