This is a story of Boris, a Soviet nuclear weapons expert and Juanita, a Cuban singer who meet by accident in the Arctic and experience what the French call “un coup de foudre” for each other. Unfortunately Soviet security organs and communist society are not conducive to allow such people a life of their choosing. They are separated for years without any contact but both are aware of the fires down below in their hearts. Read and find out what happened in the tropics when rumors of nuclear minefields along the South African border were reported by the Soviet intelligence agents.
This story is the first of a series in which Boris becomes a nuclear weapons and materials black market smuggler pursued by nuclear detectives from USA, UK and other nuclear powers. Szuprowicz already has several projects focusing on nuclear terror scenarios in Chiapas, Kurdistan, Basque country and other troubled areas of the world.
