Corruption Of Power Wins Outstanding Thriller Award
The second Alex Leksin thriller becomes the Outstanding Thriller of 2016 at the IAN Book of the Year Awards
Published by London publishing house Peach Publishing, Corruption of Power is based on a fictional Russian President's plans to regain territorial control over key former Soviet satellite countries. When his plans threaten to bring war to Russia's borders, he seeks the help of independent troubleshooter ALEX LEKSIN. Against a background of political corruption, state-sponsored terrorism and increased Taliban insurgency, Leksin's investigations take him from Moscow into one of the world's most sinister countries, right at the heart of Central Asia.
George Eccles, author, said: "I feel very honoured to receive this award which follows the thriller's recognition at both the Independent Publishers Book Awards and the eLit Awards. It is very gratifying that readers seem to feel a certain empathy for Alex Leksin, who is very much a hero for our times: complex, intuitive, self-critical and ruthlessly determined, yet highly flawed on a personal level."
