Staatsstreich für die Demokratie – der neue große Fall für Jack Ryan



Jack Ryan junior hält sich in Teheran auf, um den Iran unter seiner inzwischen gemäßigten Regierung zu erkunden. Er trifft dort einen alten Freund, der ihm eine rätselhafte Botschaft übermittelt und tags darauf spurlos verschwindet. Jack macht sich auf die Suche nach ihm und gerät dadurch immer mehr in ein Verwirrspiel zwischen CIA, MI6 und russischen Geheimdienstagenten. Die Spur führt in die Republik Dagestan. War sein Freund in die Umsturzpläne des Landes verstrickt, das sich aus der russischen Föderation lösen möchte? Und hat sich die Lage in dem Land wirklich so verschärft, dass ein Krieg unausweichlich wird?

The Centralia mine fire is a coal seam fire that has been burning underneath the borough of Centralia, Pennsylvania, United States, since at least May 27, 1962. At its current rate, it could continue to burn for over 250 years. The fire caused most of the town to be abandoned. The population dwindled from around 1,400 at the time the fire started to 10 in 2017, and most of the buildings have been leveled. On May 7, 1962, the Centralia Council met to discuss the approaching Memorial Day and how the town would go about cleaning up the Centralia landfill, which was introduced earlier that year. Pennsylvania had passed a precautionary law in 1956 to regulate landfill use in strip mines, as landfills were known to cause destructive mine fires.

The law required a permit and regular inspection for a municipality to use such a pit. This was a world where no human could live, hotter than the planet Mercury, its atmosphere as poisonous as Saturn’s. At the heart of the fire, temperatures easily exceeded 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit . Lethal clouds of carbon monoxide and other gases swirled through the rock chambers. The town council arranged for cleanup of the strip mine dump, but council minutes do not describe the proposed procedure. It is speculated that the process—setting it on fire—was not specified because state law prohibited dump fires.
