This story, though it is aspires to be a humorous parody of Casino Royale, is an all too serious fictionalization of the Andijan massacre, which occurred in eastern Uzbekistan in 2005, aided indirectly but materially by the United States. It is the first story in a trilogy about how James Schuyler Hamilton Shively the Third, a neo-conservative Republican patrician, has his conservative values undermined by his love for the progressive beauty Fallopia Rosario Perez. She only makes a cameo in this story, but features prominently in the next two, The Great Objectivist Strike and My Last Adventure
The story is sarcastically dedicated to Herman Cain, who during his bid for bid for leadership of the Republican Party in 2016 talked about “Uzbeki-beki stan”, as if mockery of this benighted country somehow justifies supporting a dictatorship in which members of the political opposition, according to Craig Murray the former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan, are systemically tortured, and even boiled alive in oil.
The story is complete but needs a final edit by a professional editor. If interested in reading it kindly purchase my completed stories or support me on Patreon.
