In this Cold War thriller, as WW II grinds to an end in the rubble of Nazi Germany, all eyes turn to the next ‘cold’ one. The Americans, the Russians, and the British all know that the future belongs to whomever can grab the new rockets, jet fighters, long-range bombers, synthetic fuels and other

cold war thriller‘wonder weapons’ that Adolph Hitler unleashed upon them, because they will shape the balance of world power for decades to come.  Once-bitter enemies are tomorrow’s allies, old friends cannot to be trusted, and lies, double-dealing, action and adventure, spy versus spy, and treachery are the norm in this CIA versus KGB spy thriller. Caught in these, the seminal events of the mid-Twentieth Century, is the torrid but impossible romance between Ed Scanlon, a brilliant, young, American OSS agent and Hanni Steiner, the gritty, street-smart leader of the communist resistance cell in Leipzig. They now find themselves on opposite ends of an international tug of war over the plans for Germany’s revolutionary Me-262 jet fighter and the scientists who designed and built it.

The new German jet is sweeping the skies of American B-17 bombers, and to succeed, Ed and Hanni must not only outwit each other, they must stay one-step ahead of Otto Dietrich, the sadistic Gestapo Chief of Leipzig, who has plans of his own, and Scanlon’s perfidious British handlers who suddenly have an agenda of their own. The stakes in this international military thriller about state of the art WW II aircraft could not be higher. Driven by the uncompromising dictates of historical characters such as Josef Stalin, Lavrenti Beria, Allen Dulles, Heinrich Himmler, and Winston Churchill, it is succeed or die, and the winner will indeed lose all. Combining the best of action romance and World War II historical fiction, this fast-paced Cold War thriller will resonate.
