BLOWFISH A spy novel by Van Scott Fulton

Blowfish Synopsis

Blowfish is a spy-thriller with a group known as Powertron on a mission to destroy the world.  As the clock ticks down a privately funded spy team steps into stop Powertron dead in its tracks. With the United States spy network in gridlock and denial, it takes a totally committed private network to attempt the impossible.

The novel begins with Brook Scott, a retired special agent, concentrating on fly-fishing on a small trout stream in Pennsylvania.  He receives an urgent message from his close friend and fellow agent Keith Robinson inviting him to to meet at the Airway Club in New York City.  A third agent, Robin Brown, intelligent and beautiful beyond words, escorts Brook and Keith to a hidden communication center where they are briefed on the Powertron project.

With surround sound and state-of-the-art visuals, an authoritative voice explains that Powertron is an international cartel with the objective of overthrowing the United States Government and taking world control with a sophisticated form of subliminal brainwashing, futuristic weaponry, and germ warfare—buttressed with a high-tech computerized cyber-terrorism program designed to cause havoc throughout the world. “With less than a year to meet their objective, we have no choice but to derail their world takeover plan!  Have I made myself perfectly clear?” In unison the private team answers,“Yes!”

Instructions from the New York office send Brook and Keith to Las Vegas, where Patsy Buconi, an Italian-Jewish casino owner, plays an important role in assisting the private team to gather information on some of the Powertron Players, a mix of communication specialists, martial arts experts, and world leaders. Matsumi surfaces in a martial arts demonstration swallowing batons of fire and holding five trainees around his body.  He gets a standing ovation when he bows and touches his head to the mat seven times while displaying his polished teakwood leg.  Katseko, a communication specialist from Japan, emerges from a private stealth jet camouflaged as a United States military plane.  Brook and Keith are busy marveling at their casino winnings, interfacing with Patsy Buconi, and collecting intelligence at the local horse-race track. To complete the cast of characters, Kuwait Charlie escorts Katseko to the martial arts demonstration.  He leaves the martial demonstration to be rushed by private limo to his private jet hidden in an abandoned airstrip in the Las Vegas desert—exiting the United States airspace undetected.

With the coordinates of the Powertron gang updated on the spy team’s main New York computer, they head to Kentucky to learn something about the horse business.  Just as things are beginning to get interesting at the Kari Morgan residence, their temporary spy headquarters, Kuwait Charlie shows up to purchase one of the high-priced thoroughbreds at the Keenelande Horse auction. Kuwait Charlie, smooth and debonair, turns on the social charm enough to briefly throw the private spy group off the trail.  Brook, the more experienced of the private spy team, recognizes that Kuwait Charlie is heavily involved and continues to track his every move.

With time running out the private spy group discovers an organization called The New World Order, adding still another dimension to this spy-thriller.  They soon learn that it is just another shadow organization set up to divert attention from Powertron.

Powertron next abducts dozens of corporate America’s black sheep, and by using mind control at a training camp in Papua New Guinea promises them a role in world peace.  They become fully hypnotized and walk around with the blank expressions of zombies. The private spy group travels up the Karawari River where they confront the Karawari natives and get involved with Katseko.  She flies them in a high-speed flying saucer to North Korea where Robin is instrumental in breaking the virus-infected Powertron code.

The private spy group uncovers a weapons stockpile on the border of Iraq and Iran with acres of high-tech missiles and germ warfare laboratories staffed by some of the brightest scientists in the world who have been co-opted by the Powertron program. After demonstrating a newly developed zombie virus, they demonstrate their scientific prowess by having the spy-group sleep in decompression chambers that stop the aging process.

The militants use cyber warfare to cause havoc around the world.  The newspapers read like a who’s who in destruction.  Red tide and other disasters hit almost daily as the world begins to crumble one step at a time.

As if the private spy group didn’t have enough on their plate, they watch in horror as Wall Street crumbles bringing the nation to its knees.  The United States looks like a cratered moonscape with its electrical grids totally destroyed. Americans know what it feels like to live in a third world country with little hope for the future. The United States, once the most powerful nation in the world,is now under military rule. Survival encampments serve as a temporary band-aid to the catastrophic conditions.

With an all out effort to stop Powertron’s world takeover, the private spy group is successful in capturing Kuwait Charlie down under in their super atomic submarine.  He demonstrates to the spy team how he can communicate with his brainwaves by receiving a hard copy on the submarine’s printer from Patsy Buconi in Las Vegas.   A Pakistani freighter mysteriously shows up and sends its special diving team down to capture the spy group who, during a heavy storm, break loose with their prize Kuwait Charlie transported back to the submarine for interrogation.

By wiring Kuwait Charlie to powerful electrodes, Robin takes him to his breaking point by teasing him with sexual tricks and torture—yielding Powertron’s secret code for destroying the Universe. As the tension builds, Kuwait Charlie gives the command to begin the detonation. But out of desperation, he aborts the program, thereby sending shock waves of information bits rolling throughout the Universe.  The novel concludes with a spectacular movie type surprise ending.
