Fascist dark clouds hover over Washington D.C. as the result of the new president of the United States making decisions that divides the country and takes it to the brink of war. But the reality is that he is being controlled by the president of Russia through the Sluzhba Vneshney Razvedki, or SVR, Russia’s external intelligence agency as it applies to civilian affairs; after being drugged during a business trip to Moscow two years before his campaign victory, and no one seems to notice. But three women working in the White House – CIA computer specialist Marlene Ito, Secret Service agent Rachel Strong, and special advisor Terry Ann Meyerson – suspect the president’s odd behavior is reflective of some kind of sinister plot. Can they discover the connection before the world is lost? A dramatic satire that suggests the election rumors were all true, “The SVR” is an action thriller where art imitates life. Writers: Eric Nemoto, Jerry Wayne. Pages: 130.
