The second novel by Daniel Johnson has been called "a non-stop page turner" by Midwest Book Review. “THE MOLOTOV BOX” is an action-packed, fast moving story about a beautiful FBI lawyer who escapes the Washington grind and gets more than she bargained for when a seemingly simple investigation turns into a deadly chess game with a killer she can’t quite catch wrapped around a twenty-year-old Cold War mystery she can’t quite solve.
When Gaby Bernard gives a legal opinion about a murder in a Memphis freight yard she sees her chance at the field assignment she has been hoping for. Handsome and enigmatic Interpol officer, Alexsandr Pushkin charms his way into the investigation and then into a lot more as a chase for the murderer leads all the way across the Southeast to an explosive confrontation at the home of the Russian Godfather in America.
What could a freight yard in Memphis have to do with the most powerful foreign crime boss in the US and what is so important about one container that it is worth kidnapping and murder? By the time we learn the real meaning of The Molotov Box, we have begun to question not just our understanding of the facts but the roles of the players, Gaby’s professional competence and maybe even her sanity as the situation continues to spin violently out of control.
