MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Just hours after ‘Russian President Vladimir Putin declared martial law in four occupied regions of Uklraine,’ self-proclaimed investigative writer Raissa Robles released her new book, a sequel to “Marcos Martial Law: Never Again.”

Lamenting the failure of her first book and advocacy against the return of the Marcoses to Malacañang, Robles told The Adobo Chronicles that she has high hopes this new book on Putin will be more successful, considering the world-wide influence of the Russian leader.

Robles added that the soft launch of the new book will be followed by a book signing tour throughout Russia and Ukraine.

Raissa Robles Releases New Book Cover On Marcoses!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Just days after her one and only book, ”Marcos Martial Law: Never Again” became irrelevant after Bongbong Marcos won the May 9, 2022 Philippine presidential elections, self-proclaimed investigative journalist Raissa Robles released a new cover.

The new cover features a caricature of the Marcos family in Malacañang, a film graphic from Director Darryl Yap’s ”Maid in Malacañang.” The film tells of the last days of the Marcoses prior to being ousted through the People Power Revolution — from the point of view of the Malacañang household staff.

Only the cover and title have changed (“Again”) , a desperate strategy by Robles to sell the remaining unsold, dusty copies of her book.

It’s the proverbial ”Don’t judge a book by its cover,” or shall we say ”A wolf in sheep’s clothing.”

Congratulations, Raissa Robles!
