WINSTON CHURCHILL'S RENEGADE SPY
Mid-1940, the darkest of the nights for Britain during WWII. Adolf Hitler's military has conquered much of continental Europe, including France. Now a mere twenty miles away from England, with only the English Channel in between, his Wehrmacht plans to invade the island-nation. Sixty-five year old Winston Churchill is prime minister of his beleaguered country. And a German spy might have burrowed deeply within his government, plotting to aid that onslaught.
Such is the news an unofficial emissary of the wartime leader secretly brings to Jonas Shaw in Switzerland one morning in WINSTON CHURCHILL'S RENEGADE SPY.
The prime minister, he's told, has formed a committee to expose this traitor. But this body, made up of the ruling class, is too insular, and Churchill wants Shaw, a working class, transplanted American, to help investigate.
Shaw has had many roles in his eventful life. A former amateur boxing champion. A celebrated New York City detective, who saved the lives of influential politicians. And briefly, before scandal forced him out, one of Churchill's bodyguards. Should he accept, he realizes he will need all his street smarts and courage. For in the treacherous world of war ravaged Europe, one never knows if a friend or foe will step out from the shadows.
