Two worlds collide! It is 1941, eighteen-year-old Katerina documents her harrowing flight from Ukraine and the Nazi occupation in her personnel journal.

81 years later, her grandson Ivan Kross and long-time friend Nikolas, meet after five long years. During a friendly game of chess, discussions turn to Ivan’s preoccupation with the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, triggering a chain of events irrevocably changing his life.


Ivan and his family are drawn into a thrilling vortex of political intrigue, cyber-attacks, AI drone surveillance and covert infiltration. From Geneva to London to Moscow, his path crosses, retired British special forces Lieutenant Colonel Roger Aitkens and his SAS Black OPS team, as well as, outlawed, independent Russian journalist, Arianna Nekraslova, who’s audacity and resources will prove invaluable in navigating through the back alleys of Moscow.


The riveting chronicle unfolds into a shattering domino effect, shaking the foundations of the Kremlin and setting in motion ramifications threatening the rule of a Russian Federation on the brink of nuclear armageddon.

    Domino Factor de Alexander Kross

    Ce livre m'a tenu en haleine du début à la fin. Je traînait ce livre partout où j'allais tellement je voulais savoir la suite des événements. Un succès, j' en suis fan fini. Bravo Alexander Kross.

  • Arthur Sandborn

    Great thriller, with an impressive parallel to the Second World War.
    Great intrigue about a way to end the Ukrainian invasion by Russia!
    Couldn't put this book down, didnt want it to end.
    Has a great ending, all the same!
    A must-read in 2023.

  • Céline Picard

    A gripping political thriller centered on the war in Ukraine.
    It has all the factual rigor of a Ken Follet novel and the whirlwind pace of a Dan Brown narrative.
    I especially liked the touches of humor which made the characters engaging and Katerina’s diary was an interesting and sensitive perspective into WWII.
    I was completely immersed in the suspense and intrigue from the beginning to the climactic end.
