Weather Over Mendoza

By John Michell - ISBN: 9781922850669

RRP: $28.95

Adrian Ashton is about to face his moment of truth. 

Set in 1994, in the period between the Soviet Union’s collapse and Putin's seizing power of Russia, Adrian reflects on a life cursed by childhood trauma, sexual ineptitude and unreciprocated love. Provocative, evocative and highly addictive, Weather over Mendoza follows a troubled man who mistakes love for ideology and his benefactor’s ruthless genius in protecting him.  

A newspaper article is set to reveal his secret past as a Soviet mole in Britain’s MI6. The situation was created by the betrayal of his Soviet benefactor, with whom he had developed an unhealthy reliance.

A fast-paced, no holds barred account of late-night introspection, Adrian Ashton’s tale weaves to a taut conclusion to answer a philosophical question: is Adrian the victim or the villain?

“A winner for lovers of great thrillers and written with such style and form that it is clear this author is one to continue to enjoy in the future… Exceptional read!” Thomas, Indie Book reviewer
