In the harrowing aftermath of Chernobyl’s meltdown in 1986, the fate of Eastern Europe hangs by a thread.

New York Times Best-selling author David L. Robbins, called “the Homer of World War II,” turns his mastery of the historical action novel to another defining moment of the twentieth century: the Chernobyl Nuclear Accident in 1986.


Diplomats and internationals find themselves all traveling across China to the USSR, each to respond to the Chernobyl nuclear accident. A murder among them while traveling needs to be solved. An exciting read.”

Critical acclaim

“David L. Robbins takes us from Hitler’s camps through the British Mandate in Palestine, onto a rocky kibbutz, and into the dangerous Irgun. A profound and pivotal novel of the birth of the State of Israel, with all its adventures and tragedies on display. This is Robbins—historian, humanist, and master novelist—at the top of his game. An epic and timeless work.”

“The story is a dotty, coincidence-filled Modesty Blaise-style caper dressed up in academic clothing – an excellent combination. I loved it.”

“The action is exciting and the pace furious … a screw-tightening story.”

“Set in a WWII prison camp in the Philippines, Broken Jewel is both a touching love story and thriller of a read.”
