Available now, author-signed paperback copies of my newest book, Murder, Intrigue, and Conspiracy: Stories from the Cold War and Beyond.

Conspiracies and intrigues are nothing new. They’ve been a part of human interactions since the time of the ancients. With the advances in technology and transportation since the beginning of the 20th Century, they now extend across the globe with ease. State actors wield their influence in the far-flung corners of the earth, using money, leverage, blackmail, and violence to create positive outcomes for themselves or minimize the damage that troublesome dissidents can cause.

Collected here are eleven stories stretching across more than a century of geopolitics; when the shadowy world defined by espionage, covert action, and diplomacy by other means briefly surfaced. When operations spun out of control and could no longer be covered up, or when brave men and women refused to stay silent any longer, no matter the cost. These stories cover the complete spectrum of human behavior, from the depths of depravity to the heights of personal courage. Daring rescues are juxtaposed with cynical coverups. Audacious plans are sabotaged by conniving traitors. Human foibles are exploited and human beings are compromised.

Espionage has been described as the world’s second oldest profession, and with good reason. These stories are just a handful of examples of how nations compete in underhanded and duplicitous ways. And how people become caught up in and destroyed by the machinations of organizations and events with far-reaching consequences.
