In the not-too-distant future, Italy is in disarray. It has voted to
leave the EU in an attempt to regain control of its laws, finances
and commerce. Even so, the country’s economy is shrinking and its
national debt rising. There is a marked escalation, too, in
unemployment, bank loans and immigration. Production and service
companies are in difficulty. The only thriving business areas are the
black market and organised crime. There is discontent and protest on
all sides.

In Florence, the local Mafia boss, more accustomed to gunrunning and
trading in plutonium, is involved in organising a silent auction for
the sale of one of the world’s most valuable lost paintings – a
sixteenth-century masterpiece, which was appropriated in World War II
by Stalin’s Trophy Brigade. A British art expert is set to buy the
picture on behalf of his client, a South American billionaire – yet
surprisingly two Italian undercover intelligence agents, acting as
antique dealers, submit the winning bid.

All the while, human beings continue to harm the Earth by destroying
land, sea, air, animals and trees. Global climate change, polluting
the atmosphere, depleting the ozone layer: these are some of man’s
crimes against Nature. But time is running out. Nature has lost
patience with humans. Unless something is done immediately to reverse
the destruction of the ecosystem, Nature will retaliate by deploying
the terrifying forces at her command. And as a first step in wreaking
her revenge, she instigates a reign of terror by the deadliest
creature on Earth.

Pinned to the door of a warehouse in the northern suburbs of Kazan, capital of the Republic of Tatarstan, was a large piece of cardboard on which had been scrawled, in red paint, the words, ‘OPÁSNOST’: DERZHAT’SYA PODAL’SHE! [DANGER: STAY AWAY!]’ Inside the warehouse, it was gloomy and the atmosphere was heavy with dust and the smell of cordite. Untidy piles of small wooden boxes with rope handles jostled for space with stacks of long rectangular crates. It was difficult to find a way through them. Once he had reached the other end of the building, the visitor stopped momentarily and stared. A beam of sunlight, radiating from a chink in the roof, illuminated a package standing against the back wall. A strip of the wrapping paper had been torn away. The man was transfixed by what he saw. In the shaft of light, through the tear in the paper, peering out from under arched brows and following his every move, were two soft deep brown eyes.

Born in Surbiton, Surrey in 1944, Alan Moore lives in Barnes with his
wife, Amber. They have two daughters and a son, who between them have
two boys and two girls. Alan was educated at Oundle School in
Northamptonshire and at London University, where, as an external
student, he obtained a BA degree in English. Thereafter, for 25
years, he single-handedly ran his own book publishing company, which
at one stage was producing up to twenty new titles a year. He is now
74, and so far as self-publishing his first book is concerned, he is
something of a late bloomer. Alan collects books and classical LP
records. He plays the piano and sketches.
