BOOK: RACING WITH THE RAIN – Ken Puddicombe
CIA INTERVENTION IN THE INTERNAL POLITICS OF BRITISH GUIANA DURING THE EARLY 1960’S.
Documents alleging the CIA, the U.S., and British Governments had a hand in changing the elected government prior to British Guiana’s independence in 1966 are essential to the theme of the novel RACING WITH THE RAIN.
Author Ken Puddicombe has written a novel using the CIA intervention to flush out the plot and lend credibility to the conflict his characters experienced during the turbulent cold war era.
Racing With The Rain: a phenomenon witnessed in the tropics. A fast moving rain cloud in an otherwise clear sky triggers a sudden downpour and people run helter-skelter for cover. Is it possible to outrun the rain? Can one ever really escape the past and avoid the inevitable?
Puddicombe’s novel spans three decades, shifting locations between pre and post independent Guyana, Cuba after the revolution, and Canada in the 1970’s.
