Burnt-out journalist Heck Davis has switched to a new career as a blues musician, but seeing his reporter pal gunned down at the 38th parallel drives him back into the fray. Dodging attempts on his own life, the bourbon-drinking, Bible-quoting, black-talking son of a white Mississippian father and Korean mother searches for answers in Kim Jong-un’s North Korea. What he finds in that heart of darkness is an apocalyptic conspiracy.
Beautifully written, riveting in subject matter and plot and so timely it’s positively eerie, Nuclear Blues will appeal to lovers of espionage, conspiracy, political, financial, religious and assassination thrillers as well as to fans of action/men’s adventure, international mystery & crime and literary fiction. With its factual background (the author is also one of the leading nonfiction writers on North Korea), it will appeal to readers of current history looking for a fascinating and plausible answer to the question of how the North Korea crisis may play out.
