Relique of the Sunken Day is Teddy James’ Debut novel.

Teddy James talks to Noni Needs about this historical fiction. In 1949, the Soviet Union successfully detonated its first atomic device, “drawing itself level with the Americans and supercharging the cold war.”

The tests were carried out in what is now Kazakhstan. “It is a fictional story based on that true event. As the mushroom clouds continued to block out the Kazakh sun, Yani Chernenko, witness and collaborator in the those terrible events, ran.”

Having thought this book might be assigned to the past, the lessons here, resonate to what is going on with the war in the Ukraine.
