Book: Covert World - Czechmate by Thom Tate
|5 stars based on the 3 most helpful Amazon reviews|
Thom Tateabout this book: Czechmate is book 1 in my "Covert World" short story series. I was inspired to write short stories in order to gain interest in my character, Blake MacKay, so that when I eventually get my full length novel, Spear Garden, published, there will already be a following and will help to make the novel more successful.
Czechmate is a short story thriller and is my shortest story. Special Agent Blake MacKay is asked to deviate from his normal duties to fulfill a special request and personal favor by the President of the United States. In this short story, Blake is strictly an assassin. Tracy Clark, the all of 19 daughter of U.S. Ambassador James Clark was pulled into the dark world of raves, sex and drugs by the charismatic Sergey Dubrovskiy, one of Prague's youngest and most successful drug dealers. In fearing for his daughter's safety Ambassador Clark is faced with taking the ultimate action to save his daughter. Blake must infiltrate the club where Dubrovskiy operates, take out his target and make his escape, all without being detected. Unfortunately, it doesn't go that smoothly.
Czechmate was written in about 2 weeks with another 3 weeks for editing and minor rewrites. I used Wikipedia and Google Earth for research and image shots of Prague for the tweets. I came up with the title instantly and thought it was a good fit. The cover was designed by a friend of mine that builds websites.
Readers who enjoy spy thrillers from Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Tom Clancy, etc… would enjoy this book.
