From the author of FLOWERS FROM BERLIN, FIREBIRD and TRUMAN’S SPY….
A tough hard spy story, tough, hard-hitting, based on cold war history, actual events and real spies. A gritty in-your-face espionage thriller…
“Noel Hynd knows the ins and outs of Washington’s institutions, public and private.” Publishers Weekly (on ‘The Enemy Within”)
From the author of FLOWERS FROM BERLIN, CONSPIRACY IN KIEV and two dozen other best selling thrillers, comes a newly revised ‘endgame’ spy story, based on the events of 1983 that were all too real.
It is 1983, the freezing point of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. Behind the headlines, unknown to most private citizens, the two super powers bumble toward nuclear confrontation….and in the back streets and back alleys of world capitals, spies and recalled spies fight for a part of a missile guidance system that could tip the balance during nuclear confrontation. And at the center is a woman with a terrible secret.
Noel Hynd takes you on a journey into the world of espionage in both the 1960’s and 1980s. Based on fascinating real life detail, some of it autobiographical, the story teams with real life characters from Andropov to Profumo and spawls across CIA stations in London and Paris as well as Parisian night spots and journalistic/spy haunts such as Harry’s New York Bar in Paris. The times were deadly, but riveting, the mood intoxicating but frightening.
