BE FIRST OR BE DEAD

By Nik Krasno

Thriller | Paperback, eBook


Michael, the Oligarch, has dealt with enemies in his own harsh way, and with the help of an unexpected and mysterious ally, fulfilled his long-coveted ambition of topping the Forbes billionaires list. Rich, still young and victorious, Michael knows how to indulge in all the pleasures his world can offer. The realization that he's just a pawn in somebody's grand game may have come too late. Will Michael survive a showdown with an ancient cabal and save his country? Be prepared for a transgressive, radical, uncompromising, grotesque, action-packed and philosophical read.



Nik Krasno is one of those writers who never thought he would end up authoring a book. He just knew that he had a story that apparently waited for the right moment to break out. For many years Nik had been involved in law and business in few Eastern European countries, spending most of his time in Ukraine. Witnessing the meteoric rise of a small number of individuals from modest citizens to mighty billionaires, Nik felt compelled to expose to the world the unique phenomenon taking place in this less familiar part of the globe. In the fictional plot of his Oligarch series he combines real and imaginary events with some 'lawyers' folklore' and known corruption and criminal schemes customary for Ukraine and other former USSR republics. The author also shares some insight into the glorious and simultaneously tragic events of 2013 uprising in Ukraine resulting in ousting of the president, ensuing Russian aggression in Crimea and tensions and war in the Eastern regions of Ukraine. The imaginary characters are designed to reflect real behavior and mentality and provide decent entertainment for the readers. Remember movies based on Bill Gates' and Mark Zuckerberg's biographies describing their path to wealth and glory? Although they were truly amazing, Nik thinks the rise of their Eastern billionaire peers is just a little more thrilling and unorthodox. The global arena becomes too small to share peacefully for global corporations and ambitious tycoons. What happens when they start fighting for supremacy? Nik offers his variant in his latest book "BE FIRST OR BE DEAD"....
