Covert ops director, John Darque (aka Darque Chadeaux) receives a mysterious package from a former adversary indicating that the President-Elect of the United States is a mole whose rise to power is a plot by the Russians to overthrow the government. Darque finds himself trying to thwart the Russian plan, eliminate the threat, protect the American people, all while trying to figure out who he can trust.
“The Orchestration” is a gripping thriller. Even though somewhat predictable, as spy novels go, for Steve Burkhart’s first novel, it is captivating. He definitely throws in a few twists to keep you reading, and John Darque is a man of many secrets and talents.
Stephen Burkhart spent the majority of his 22 year military career in Europe as a counterintelligence agent, during and immediately following the cold war. He was able to use this experience to create a fascinating journey into the world of espionage.
