51i0gwr84slJulia Gousseva is an old favourite author of mine and has been on this blog many times. I am delighted to announce her new release, which goes straight to my tbr pile.

Nikolai Volkov is a combat veteran of the Chechen war with a passion for finding truth and doing the right thing. His father is a decorated military hero, and Nikolai had planned to follow in his footsteps until the dramatic social and political changes in Russia made it impossible. In the new Russia, Nikolai embarked on a different career and soon became the best bodyguard in the prestigious Centurion Personal Protection Agency in Moscow.

Nikolai prides himself on his ability to use his analytical skills, as well as his military combat skills, when protecting his clients. His latest case promises to challenge his analytical skills: he’s asked to help design safe rooms for a prominent client in a wealthy suburb of Moscow. On the way to the construction site, a brutal murder changes his plans.

Now, Nikolai has to find the killer and prevent him from taking more lives. The city investigator, a smart woman with impressive experience, is assigned to the case. As the two of them dig through the evidence, they realize that the motives behind the murder are more complicated than they had imagined.

As the case grows darker and more urgent, with more people put at risk, even Nikolai’s investigative skills and quick thinking may not be enough to catch the killer, prevent more deaths, and save his own life.

There are two novels in the Russian Bodyguard series: GRAY SHADOWS (BOOK ONE) and IN THE CROSSHAIRS (BOOK TWO). Each novel is a complete story and can be read out of order.

Julia Gousseva

Julia Gousseva was born and raised in Russia when it was still a part of the Soviet Union, or USSR. For a long time, Russia was hidden behind the Iron Curtain and had a mysterious image of the Evil Empire to many Westerners, specifically Americans. But Russia was a mystery not just to outsiders, but to its own people as well. One of Julia’s college history professors used to refer to Russia as a country with unpredictable past. Why? Because every time a new leader came to power, all state-issued history books were changed and rewritten. And all history books were state-issued.Julia’s novel MOSCOW DREAMS is set in Russia and presents life from the perception of everyday people whose lives were dramatically altered by events that have changed and are still changing Russia. Julia’s short story collection titled TWELVE MONTHS OF THE SOVIET CHILDHOOD shows life in the Soviet Union before the changes and offer a child’s perspective. Her children’s stories put whimsical characters from old Russian fairy-tales in modern circumstances for today’s kids.
