The Tzar – Danie Markgraaff

A Christian Mayer Story – Book #3

A5, 297p.



The Tzar exploited people’s excessive ambition and greed to achieve his own. He betrayed his closest allies with a never-ending greed for wealth and power. His own ambition exceeded any sense of loyalty, integrity, or honesty. Virtues he never learned or had. With his identity unknown, the Tzar moved to intimidate Christian Mayer’s family to force him to cooperate. Buying loyal men from Mayer’s past to resource the attack, he betrayed his own most important asset’s mission to lure Mayer into conflict.

Those who do not know the value of loyalty can never appreciate the cost of betrayal. – Anonymous

The balance between loyalty and betrayal was a fine line for Christian Mayer. He was loyal to his loved ones and his personal value system. His enemies forced him to fight the threats against his family by slipping back into his violent ways, which brought him to the dark edge of his past. He could allow the threats towards the lives and peace of his loved ones, or he could retaliate in the ways he knew in the past and lose his family’s trust and love. There was no coalition between the two. No cooperation or co-existence. Or was there? Christian Mayer was not mad; he was hurt. He would learn the difference when he reacted to his hurt and emotionally obsessive love for his wife. He would destroy the world to keep them away from her. Even at the cost of the trust between them. No one could foresee the outcome of his decision.

Trust is earned, respect is given, and loyalty is demonstrated. The betrayal of any of those is to lose all three. – Ziad Abdelnour
