What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I am following the news, especially about geo-politics in Eastern Europe, a lot. I saw that the tensions between Russia and its former client states are constantly rising, slowly but surely, and I believed that at some point this situation could escalate very quickly. I believe it is absolutely possible that, just like in 1914, the leaders of Europe sleepwalk into a new war.
At the same time I got interested in an area of intelligence work that is still very under-appreciated in literature: Stay-Behind Networks, covert armies, that are activated after an invasion to fight occupation troops behind enemy lines. The NATO countries had such organisations during the Cold War. Usually they worked at the fringes of the military and intelligence communities and got little love from either side. In Italy the Gladio-Network gained some unwanted fame after rogue agents used the organisation's assets to do false flag operations to defamate the country's left wing parties. After this scandal, most such networks in continental Europe were shut down.
I envisioned that Polish Military Intelligence used the old Cold War ideas to form a modern-era organisation that actually works and is an integral part of the country's defense mechanisms.
The adventures of the Territorial Defense Force's stay-behind operatives provide the backdrop for another storyline: Mark Sanders, a security consultant in Berlin who seems to be hiding from something or someone, gets sucked into the conflict and … you should find out yourself. It won't be boring, I promise.
