William Christie: A Single Spy Sunday, May 7 2017 

William Christie’s newest thriller will be a hit with readers who enjoy spy novels, espionage plots, or are World War II aficionados. A Single Spy brings to life a young thief who catches the eye of the Soviet secret police, and is given a no-choice ultimatum: he can choose to be trained as a spy and infiltrate Nazi Germany under the identity of his best friend, no less, or he can be consigned to be lost forever.

What makes it even tougher is that Alexsi’s new identity is also the lost nephew of a Nazi leader, making it even harder as he assumes the mantel of this young man and pretends to be enamored of the Nazi ethos.

When Alexsi is promoted to an intelligence agent for a German spymaster, he lives to avoid the Gestapo finding out he’s sending reports back to the Soviets. Talk about being trapped between two bad choices. Yet Alexsi knows he must remain loyal to neither Stalin nor Hitler, but to one person: himself–if he is to survive.

Filled to the brim with accurate history, the Tehran conference between Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin becomes the focal point for Alexsi in this fascinating novel that takes readers behind the scenes of what really happened during this period.

In Alexsi, Christie has the smarts to create a man readers can’t help but admire as he fights to survive on his wits. There’s something here for everyone, from action scenes to the history to the charming Aleksi, as Christie brings this period in our history to life.

After the huge success of last year’s Orphan X, Greg Hurwitz returns with The Nowhere Man.

Evan Smoak has learned a set of unique skills he uses to his advantage. With no financial issues at hand, Evan is playing vigilante to assuage his guilt over his past crimes as a deniable assassin.

But it isn’t easy to break completely with a government program, especially when you know where all the bodies are buried–and put some of there yourself. Evan’s knowledge makes him the target of the new head of the Orphan X program, with a price on Evan’s head.

With the victim of a child sex ring waiting to be rescued, Evan finds himself trapped in a secluded mansion and has only his knowledge and smarts to help him escape to save the girl–and himself. How he does that form the basis of a book filled with nonstop action. It’s also an incredible look inside the mind and thought process of this highly intelligent young man who has been thoroughly trained to outwit even the people who trained him.

A comprehensive thriller with a complex plot and clever twists make this much more than a sequel. A compelling read that mixes elements of James Bond, Jack Reacher and Jason Bourne.
