One of the things I’m mulling is fiction: spy, thriller style novels. Really, just to see if I can. 60k words, stick it up on Amazon, see what happens.
Yes, this follows on from something I was talking about before, the Killmaster stuff, something I decided not to directly copy.
But this story would be a lovely lead in to a plot:
The tale of a legendary Nazi ghost train carrying gold which allegedly disappeared without trace in the dying days of the Second World War has taken a new twist.
Two men have filed a “finder’s claim” with a district council in Poland for an “armoured train” carrying precious metals, fuelling speculation the mysterious train has been located.
The claim was filed in the south-west Polish town of Walbrzych and could put an end to 70 years of rumour, myth and fruitless treasure hunts for the ghost train.
So, lots of lovely killing and plotting as various people try to get ahold of the treasure, our hero wins. And it turns out that what’s really there is the 500 million gold reichsmarks which were extorted out of Greece. Which everyone announces are to be returned to Greece. Mass celebrations….then Athens burns to the ground as they find out that it’s actually 500 million paper gold reichsmarks which have been delivered…..
