The Cold War – Redux (Duplicity). Cover Reveal.

The Cold War – Redux (Duplicity). Cover Reveal.

I have recently written the first of two novels in my latest Apocalyptic series, ‘Force Majeure – Purgatory’ and ‘Force Majeure – Paralysis’. The third in the series will be out mid next year. Prior to these two books, I wrote a Cold War trilogy, The Red Effect, The Black Effect and The Blue Effect, portraying what I believe could have happened in the 1980’s, had the Soviets, and the Warsaw Pact, taken the decision to attack West Germany and plunged the world into a third world war.

I now ask myself the question, are we heading down that very route now? To answer that, I am in the process of writing the first book in a new Cold War trilogy, or the ‘Cool War’ as it is sometimes referred to. The first draft title is ‘The Cold War – Redux (Duplicity)’.



Flag of Ukraine

There are two cover options being considered at the moment. Bearing in mind I am writing a trilogy, the cover chosen would have to evolve to reflect that. Publication is due in about 7 weeks time….

CWR1-Duplicity-Proof 2

The first cover option shows the blooded handprint of the Russian Federation on the flag of Ukraine.


CWR1-Duplicity-Proof 1

The second cover is more sinister, representing the conflict in Ukraine and beyond….

  1. The world situation isn’t looking very good, but it certainly provides plenty of topics for your books. You’ve sure been working hard on them. Great covers, too,
