Kennedy got the missiles out of Cuba, but that was only half the job. Nearly 50 years on, an ex-KGB quartermaster is sitting on bunker of forgotten uranium in the Cuban mountains. His plan is simple: unload his aging but deadly stockpile, and go to earth. The beautiful but forgettable Ugly Sue has one simple mission: to liquidate Mickey Boy before he can close the deal. Yavi Omari is hoping his religious zeal will soon end his pathetic life and send him into the arms of Allah and 72 dark-eyed virgins. Archie Gilmur just about to learn the hard way that a global telecommunications giant isn't buying up huge chunks of Panamanian jungle just to bring folks together.

From the Author:

It's hard to write a thriller, a political one or about big business, without having the one be a major element of the other. The business of America is business. In the face of globalization, it's the business of the world.

The fact that Yellowcake takes the reader on a ride from Memphis to Louisiana via the Far East, Europe, South America and the Caribbean isn't meant to be exotic. That's the way the world is today. I'm working with a journalist in London, my parents are astounded, it's a world economy, politics and business are inextricable. Archie Gilmur was inspired by my own work in corporate intelligence, I've consulted military and non-military sources to ensure the story rings true, but remains a page turner.

I know this guy, he worked for the CIA in some capacity about which he was never clear. He was great; he would constantly stop talking and change subjects. From time to time he'd look wistfully out the office window - the way I'll look when thinking about college. I just know he was thinking about killing some poor fool. One time he asked me if I'd been talking to another old spook, that's when I realized I was on the right track. I'd gotten the story right.

Now that I've got Yellowcake out of the chute, I've started writing a book about the crash of the subprime debt markets. The research has been a lot easier, and by easier I mean I don't have to do anything. I live that train wreck every day."

About the Author:

Richard Murff is an investment banker and financial writer in Memphis, TN. After attending the University of Alabama, he actually achieved degrees in History and Marketing from Christian Brothers University.

Years in advertising put him writing for major global corporations - his less impressive jobs include speech writer and bartender. Then he fell back-asswards into investment banking. His work has appeared in INsider Magazine, Oxford Town, Call Center Solutions Magazine, The Germantown News and the internet magazines Atlas Spinning and Memphismojo.com.

The Murff Mint Julep cookie was created in his honor.
