Mad Bad Spinning Top
Accepting a contract to test the security of a Turkish Military network, Chez, an English freelance computer security expert, finds himself embroiled in a quagmire of dire circumstances. Fanatical Turkish ultra-nationalists claiming to be the remaining decendants of the Amazon Women Warriors, corrupt Russian scientists selling plutonium, Turkish Military Intelligence, the beautiful daughter of a Turkish General, and a crazy gung-ho CIA agent, set the scene that pulls Chez deep into a chain of events resembling one of his fictional hero's (Danny Rome) mad-cap adventures.
Confronted by the Turkish ultra-nationalist terrorist group, the RMA, who seek access to the Turkish Military’s computers, Chez, is unwittingly involved in a devious plan to disrupt Turkey's admission into the EU - by setting off a dirty bomb. But there's a twist, the information the RMA want Chez to steal relates to opium shipments from Afghanistan through Iran into Eastern Turkey. Within days, a frantic Chez is wanted for espionage and finds himself playing cat and mouse with an ultra-nationalist terrorist organization, an unofficial spin-off group of the Turkish Military, and the CIA.
Enter Kuklux, a seasoned Texan CIA field agent posing as a tractor salesman, whose objective is to recover the stolen plutonium at all costs. A mission agitated by the discovery, through Chez, of a dilemma regarding Kuklux's longtime buddy and mission boss, the head of Middle East operations, Macleod.
Fate finds Chez accompanying Kuklux in an explosive journey to the Black Sea and the Sumela Monastery in the Ziganna Pass. It's here that the Great Mother Goddess, Artemis, is being summoned to help the RMA in their quest, and the scene is set for a dramatic rescue of the General’s daughter and the beginning of strange coincidences between fiction and reality – brought to life by a forty-five million dollar pay-off lodged in a Swiss bank account.
Ending up back in Ankara under the watchful eye of the CIA, Chez discovers his fictional hero’s reality eerily joined at the hip with his own, and in a desperate bid to prove his innocence to the CIA he presents his findings to Macleod. Meanwhile, Kuklux takes a trip northwards - heading for Brussels in a final attempt to foil the RMA’s and their surprise co-conspirator’s brutal attempt at blocking Turkey’s accession into Europe. Unfortunately on this Occasion, Kuklux get’s his man but cannot prevent the devious plot hatched by the RMA from becoming a reality. Europe receives a Turkish message!
