‘The Little Black Book of Soyuznik’ By David Lutes

Based on actual events. This extract tells only part of a much bigger story.

Mistakenly promoted as Dr. Lutes at a conference in Prague in 1990, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, David found himself in a limelight he didn’t seek or expect. Invited by the Prime Minister of Lithuania to give them assistance in rebuilding their new country, in private consultations with Polish Communist Leaders, in a series of secret meetings with NATO and Russian generals, touring an underground nuclear missile bunker with a Swiss spy, being shadowed by Ukrainian Mafia and receiving special ‘courtesies’ by Albanian officials…and so much more. And throughout the journey, three little black books called ‘Soyuznik’ – appeared – all mysterious, each pivotal to changes in the former Soviet Union…and maybe peace in the world. Now, the local FBI wanted to talk with him about it…about his own Soyuznik.
