In these troubled times, East-West trust matters more than ever. What greater symbol of co-existence exists than the metropolis of Istanbul, poised between Europe and Asia? What if someone wanted to destroy that symbol? In May 2022, US publishers Immortal Works will release my thriller PALLADIUM, a white-knuckle ride to save a great city from annihilation.
Until the book goes on sale, the “buy now” buttons on the left link to the Robert Pimm author pages for the UK, US and Germany.
PALLADIUM introduces John Savage, a British spy thrown out of MI6 for gross misconduct in Moscow.
In Istanbul, armed men seize Savage’s lover, archaeology professor Elif Mutlu, along with the Palladium, a talisman said to have protective powers. Savage must work with Orhan, Elif’s macho intelligence cop brother, to track down Elif and stop fanatics killing seventeen million people in the turbulent mega-city whose success is a symbol that East and West can live together. Elif must resist, and conquer, her captors. Part I of the novel includes flashbacks to the siege of Istanbul in 1453.
