A NOTE TO MY READERS

Dear reader, I hope you enjoy GOLD TRAIN, which is especially dear to my heart as it takes place in Russia, the country I love. I was inspired while creating the story of the lost Russian treasure, the characters of Jade and Alexei, as well as the book's magical setting, and I hope I was able to convey that through my writing.
Jade Snow is a jet-setting journalist and a totally new, original heroine, who finds herself in the most extreme circumstances of her life in GOLD TRAIN (which is saying a lot for someone who'd been to Afghanistan and Iraq, and had a near death experience in Stepford USA). And she deals with these circumstances in a way that is guaranteed to surprise even the most seasoned reader! Although the mystery/thriller is the book's dominant element, and Jade has been compared by reviewers to Jason Bourne, Sherlock Holmes, Nancy Drew and even Superman (wow!), it's hard to fit one's life, with all of it's complications, twists and turns within one narrow genre, won't you agree? As one reviewer put it, "Lada, your books are so all-around!"
Therefore, I ask my readers to keep an open mind while reading GOLD TRAIN, where in addition to the rip-roaring adventure and thrilling mystery, you'll find history and geopolitics, hot romance and forbidden love, amazing pets, and a touch of metaphysical/paranormal!
If I had to make a comparison with another book, I'd say that Gold Train protagonists, Jade and Alexei, share traits and spirit with Claire and Jamie, protagonists of The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. The spirit of the book may also appeal to the fans of The Da Vinci Code and Jason Bourne. Having said that, I want to stress again and again that this is a totally original book/series, complete with a new and original heroine. No clones here!
Note:
While each book in the Accidental Spy Adventure Series stands on each own, it is advisable to read them sequentially to fully appreciate plot twists and character development.

Enjoy!
