Synopsis: At what price would you sell your soul...? This captivating thriller weaves business, politics, seduction, power, and religion all into a compelling tale of international intrigue. Set in 1991, during the dawn of the Post-Communist era in Hungary, this novel chronicles the exploits of Michael, an adventurous but struggling American entrepreneur. During this period of tumultuous political, economic, and social change, the Russian Mob is taking advantage of the ensuing turmoil to entrench itself deeper into the business landscape of the former Soviet Bloc countries. Navigating through the streets of Budapest, Michael immediately senses an air of mysticism and lurking danger. Things begin to heat up, as a series of business dealings and events leads him to a consulting position with the 'Organization’. Seduced by their women, money, and power, Michael becomes entangled in the web of Mob culture. An examination of conscience reveals a spirit ravaged with feelings of guilt and betrayal, but a rapidly growing bank account serves as the means to justify his actions. Pondering his future, he wonders if he can balance this extreme Budapest lifestyle with his ‘ordinary’ family life back home. After padding his wallet for the past several months, would the Organization let him just walk away, or would there be consequences? This book is intended for mature audiences.˃˃˃ looking for something different? Don’t miss this debut thriller novel! Add to your cart now and immerse yourself into the 'experiment'.

About the author: As a musician, working and playing in blues bands for most of his life, Maurice has always been involved in the creative arts in one form or another. In addition to his music, web site design, radio host, and live event production can all be counted in his artistic repertoire. Deciding to take a break from all this, he has rededicated his creative energies exclusively toward writing. Having just finished his first international thriller novel, "The Budapest Experiment" (TBE), it is a time of great excitement and anticipation. Scheduled for release on May 25, 2015, it took more than a full year to write with a length of over 150,000 words.Current goals as an author are taken from the title of a recently read book offering this simple, but effective, advice: Write, Publish, and Repeat. Writing the sequel to TBE is next on the agenda and currently on the drawing board. There is a "business geek" side to Maurice as well. With an MBA degree, and having started several entrepreneurial ventures, business/data analytics and stats are things that he thoroughly enjoys working with. It has become a fun challenge putting together a business plan for "Full Tilt Publishing", the self-publishing arm of the business, while continuing to write novels.
