When a book begins with a man watching a film of his wife being brutally murdered, I?m hooked. The film, sent to MI6 from the KGB, came with the warning not to try and stop Adam Procane. When International foreign correspondent, Bob Newman, receives a letter from his wife, Alexis, written on the day of her death, she writes that Adam Procane must be stopped. With nothing but the name of a hotel, the mention of a boat?s departure time, and the image of a castle in the film, he sets off to catch her killers. Enter Tweed of the British Intelligence Service, who knows it?s rumored that Procane is a top U.S. security official defecting to Russia before the 1984 presidential election. As Newman draws nearer to those responsible for his wife?s death, and several top U.S. officials vacation in Europe at the same time, Tweed has his hands full, traveling from country to country after Newman, dealing with the Director of the CIA, and trying to stop Procane, whoever he is, from crossing from Scandinavia into Russia. The action never stops. Cover Story is my first book by Colin Forbes and I look forward to reading others. For fans of espionage, murder and suspense thrillers, this is a book for them.
