Perfect recipe for a thriller mix together: knowing when you are going to die…guns…and an election. Add Russians and stir.
Final Act is a fast-paced sequel to Final Notice and has been described as simultaneously realistic and surrealistic…and totally engrossing. It is set in today’s chaotic political climate and gun-crazy culture and features the “only slightly” sci-fi watch – the VT2 – that monitors blood chemistry so accurately that it can predict the wearer’s death within 10, 20, or 30 days.
But while Final Notice asked the question “What would you do if you knew – for certain – that you had a couple weeks to live?”, Final Act asks, “What might others do if they knew that you only had a couple weeks to live?” And when those “others” include Bratva (the Russian Mafia) and the SVR (formerly the KGB), you have a pause resister that turns “what if” into “what is”.
Final Act picks up the VT2 story during a presidential election year, exposing the danger to everyone – especially the candidates. Crafted with suspense, dark humor, irony, and a dash of romance, Final Act casts a clear light on the deep divisions within our country, divisions that have been widened and exploited by a malignant foreign power.
