The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: V4 Finally Released!!!


It’s been a long time coming, and to all my faithful fans, I do apologize.  Life always gets in the way of my writing plans.  It makes me remember a saying, “if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.”  During the last quarter, I had planned to drop several books, including V4.  My expectations, however, did not include my husband nearly dying in sleep, kids with insane homework assignments and several family trips, outings and visits.  Not to mention, RiverHouse opened a new office dead smack in the middle of the financial district of Manhattan (NYC).  I have been buuusssyyy.

The good news is that Adam is doing much better.  You don’t realize how special they are until they are nearly taken from you , right beside you.  For that, I am so thankful to my dear sweet savior, Jesus Christ.  The office is working out great in New York and will offer even more opportunities for readers and authors alike who follow RiverHouse and the family visits were awesome.  I saw my cousin for the first time in ten years and it was amazing.  We are even moving to the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale area next summer. 

But with everything going on, my writing slowed to a pitiful crawl.  Now, I’m back.  And as normal after being pulled away from my work, I am on fire.

I have a lot in front of me.  Saving Anya and The World In Reverse are due out both on Christmas Day.  It will be out no later than December 31st.  Please be patient with me.  If I pull this off, this will be the biggest project that I’ve ever taken on.

Now on to Volume 4 and Book One of the Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov.

The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Volume 4

Now a widower, Dmitry Medlov’s life has completely changed. Wealthy beyond his wildest dreams, his aspirations quickly move from more money to more power. Only the power he seeks is held by the commanding and elusive Czar of the underworld, Boss Smirnov.
When Dmitry successfully talks the underboss and the all-knowing eye of the underworld, Khalid, into arranging a meeting between he and Boss Smirnov, he has no idea what troubles he is about to face. There are secrets that will be exposed in Prague that will forever change his young life again, leading to a decision that will rock the underworld for good.
Meanwhile, back in London, the city is buzzing about the deaths of the entire board of directors of Dmitry’s newly acquired business, Hutton Industries, minus the company’s former front man, who was involved in a gruesome home invasion that left him blind, deaf, mute and paralyzed.

With no witnesses, leads or proof combined with the botched attempt on his own life during the horrid chain of events, Dmitry is looked over as a person of interest by Scotland Yard and is given carde blache to turn his new private company into his personal money laundering hub right under the public’s nose with the help of his Africa girlfriend, Oxford University senior and business genius, Elsa. And it’s just in time for his new secret alliance with the leaders of a powerful paramilitary sect led by Elsa’s father in Angola, Africa.

Dmitry’s new found power creates a checkmate for his ambitions to be boss but puts a target squarely on his back by not only organized crime heads around the world but also by his own brother, Ivan. Secret alliances are formed. Money is exchanged, and a definite war is looming. Only no one is willing to give up as much as Dmitry is to be king.

Read the last volume of the first book, The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov and witness the heart stopping rise of a giant and everything that he’s willing to do to become the world’s most powerful and deadly boss.

 

The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Book One

If you’ve been waiting to buy all the volumes of Book One of The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Volumes 1-4, the time has now arrived.

By popular demand, Latrivia S. Nelson is proud to announce a compilation of the first four of the twelve volumes from the Medlov Crime Family Short Stories Series.

Dmitry Medlov wasn’t always a billionaire crime boss. His rise to the top was a painstaking process that took many years and many trials and tribulations. From breaking out of prison on a twenty-year bid in Russia to trafficking guns in the back alleys of London and finally toppling a dynasty run by a blood-thirsty Czar, this seven-foot tall, bad boy had to earn every penny.

Along the way, however, he also learned about a woman’s heart, the pain of losing a sick wife, the drain of taking care of a psychotic kid brother, the knowledge of finding out that he was a father and pride of building an empire all before his 25th birthday.

Read about American’s favorite mob boss in four short tales that will have you flipping through the pages and begging for more.

The Anatomy of Dmitry Medlov: Discussing the Boss


I have received about six emails from women who have read the book and are amazed at the anatomy of Dmitry Medlov. One woman, Carol Kriger, has asked me to (1) breakdown his body type for her from the author’s perspective. This sounded fun, so I agreed. She also asked me to (2) tell her where my motivation for his character came from and how I arrived at a seven foot mob boss. This part is a little more complicated, but I will give my best answer.
Answer 1: Dmitry Medlov is seven feet tall, blonde, extremely muscular (athletic muscular, not bodybuilder muscular), striking blue eyes, a wide smile, strong features – chiseled chin, wide set eyes, etc. He has a baritone voice, a thick Russian accent, tons of tattoos, wears mostly tailored suits, wears a strange, sexy cologne that reminds you of sandalwood and worst of all he has serious swagger.
He hardly ever raises his voice, only likes fine living, loves caviar, borscht and vodka. He grew up in the streets and raised his only brother. So, he’s rough around the edges but through time has learned to be more refined. He plays the guitar, reads excessively, enjoys quiet nights alone, spoils his lovers and has a bad habit of staring his opponent down.
Now, I don’t know about you, but this kind of man is hardly ordinary. So, he stands out. I imagine he has stood out his entire life as an alpha male who is beautiful, capable and legendary.
Answer 2: I am really into the heroine being saved by the hero. I know that we are strong independent woman of the twenty-first century. I am definitely one. However, I still like the chivalrous man, who exerts a little force and knows when to be very gentle. Unfortunately, I know more fumbling bumbling men then I do true gents. So, my small arsenal of alpha men with the “proper breeding” are natural resources that I lean on for most of my insight. I use my “natural resources”, my imagination and my public sightings to help me build the perfect man for my stories.
My husband is into tats; a good friend of mine gives me some Russian insight; I once dated a guy who was 6’7”. It was a very short romance, but it’s still a friendship that allows me to marvel at him from a far. I’ve met and know my fair share of true bad boys on both sides of the law, and I have quite a few “international friends.” So there you go. All answers answered in a nutshell.

XoXo and all that jazz,

Latrivia S. Nelson

New Dmitry’s Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen Video


Here’s a sneak peak of Dmitry’s Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen video trailer.  The real deal will be ready in early June but this is our first draft.  Hope that you enjoy!!!

At least 69 alleged Russian mafia arrested in European crackdown


You know that I like to make a distinction between fiction (which I write) and fact (which does exist).  Check out the latest in working groups across Europe’s war on organized crime.

The Christian Monitor reported the following:

A Europe-wide crackdown on alleged mobsters from the former Soviet Union continued Monday, with arrests now totaling at least 69. The suspects are accused of robbery, drug smuggling, money laundering, and other crimes.

The crackdown, dubbed “Operation Java,” has exposed the global reach of the Russian mafia, who some experts claim now dominate the criminal underworld in several European countries and are active as far away as Australia and Singapore.

The Associated Press reported Monday that the crackdown started as a probe into the Russian mob by Spanish authorities. Spain arrested 24 suspects over the weekend, with more arrests in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland, Reuters said.

The Guardian reported that the mob had targeted Spanish real estate investments for money laundering. 

Police have carried out a series of operations against the Russian mafia and its money-laundering operations in Spain’s corruption-riddled property sector over the past four years.

Among those to have been detained in recent years is Zakhar Kalashov, accused of being a senior mafia boss. Kalashov is on bail, awaiting sentence in a money-laundering trial that was carried out under tight security and that ended in December.

Armenians, Russians, and Georgians were arrested. Criminals from former Soviet states are often lumped together as the “Russian mob,” despite varying origins.

Video at Spanish newspaper El Pais’ website showed authorities hustling suspects into police cars, and carrying evidence away from raided buildings.

El Pais on Tuesday quoted Swiss prosecutors and a Spanish police source on the massive scope and reach of the criminal ring. (in Spanish)

“This is a perfectly structured, highly hierarchical international criminal organization, directed from Spain and mainly active in robbery, burglary, and receiving stolen goods,” said Swiss prosecutors in a statement relating to 11 detainees.

The criminal group also raised money in Ireland, Sweden, Belgium, Britain, and Turkey. “We’re going to find big mansions and enormous amounts of money, as we did in other operations,” a Spanish police source said.

In March, investigative journalist Ruslan Gorevoy claimed that mobsters from the former Soviet Union operating outside Russia now numbered as many as 300,000 and have come to dominate the criminal underworld in several countries, the Moscow Times reported, citing an article in the Russian-language Versiya.

Gorevoy says law enforcement personnel in many countries – including Spain, Greece, Hungary, Italy, France, Mexico, “and even the United States” –have been surprised by how “confidently” criminal groups consisting of people from the former Soviet Union now dominate their national criminal worlds.

Indeed, the Versiya report continues, the Russian groups, which include “up to 300,000 of our compatriots,” have succeeded in pushing aside local groups and establishing their own “spheres of influence” to the point that they no longer need to “clarify relations with the help of arms.”
