I’ve written Pandora’s Matryoshkas as the first novel in a series of three, for anyone who has given up believing in the big lie.

This great American novel is about a post-911 family tragedy. It tells the story of a man who has a burning desire to get what he wants. Above all, it deals with the lie of the century.A must-read for anyone who has struggled with an indifferent truth, who’s anxious about Fox News, and beyond, or who is upset with the administration (ours or theirs). Anyone who, like me, struggles with the pre-fab lies being sold to us.

In a perverse universe nothing is what it seems. Beautiful women, ugly mistakes and all hell is about to break loose. After 9/11, Chris starts looking online for a wife, helped by his daughter Lisa. He meets Anastasia on the Internet and travels off to Moscow for her. Here Chris becomes entangled in a web of sinister events. The book is about sex and politics, the politics of sex. The reality is twisted and the devil back in Moscow.

If you like psychological thrillers and unreliable narrators, I humbly suggest reading Pandora’s Matryoshkas, a 320-page novel of gripping prose. My novel may best be compared to J.M. Coetzee’s Booker Prize winner ‘Disgrace.’ Hence Pandora’s Matryoshkas is a psychological thriller, difficult to put down. The book’s inspiration is most obviously Mikhael Bulgakov’s masterpiece ‘Master and Margarita,’ but also movies such as ‘The Devil’s Advocate’ and ‘Eyes Wide Shut.’
