The Nazis have taken Austria, and Stalin's Red Army is systematically eliminating the Kremlin's enemies. Europe is going to hell in a handbasket. With isolationist sentiment running high in America, and the president's popularity at an all-time low, Hitler seizes the moment and dispatches his secret weapon: An agent named 'Siegfried' who conceals himself behind the mask of middle-class America. A chameleon who can change identities and personalities at will. A cold-blooded killer who will win the war for Germany. A banker, linguist, and demolitions expert who has successfully infiltrated German intelligence, FBI Special Agent Thomas Cochrane is handpicked by Roosevelt for an impossible mission: To find Hitler's spy before he carries out a plan that will remove the president from office at a critical moment in the century's history. As Cochrane, with the help of British Intelligence agent Laura Worthington, circles closer to his elusive quarry, a spy with supporters in the highest levels of U.S. government readies the world stage for a final act of annihilation that will alter the tide of war--and the future of the free world--in unthinkable ways. Imagine a world where your most precious inalienable rights are denied. Where individual freedom is a thing of the past. Imagine World War II without FDR ... 735,000 first mass market paperback printing.

It is early 1950, the midpoint of the Twentieth Century. Joe McCarthy is cranking up his demagoguery and Joseph Stalin had intensified the cold war. In Washington, J. Edgar Hoover's FBI is fighting a turf war with the newly founded Central Intelligence Agency. Harry Truman is in the White House, trying to keep a lid on domestic and foreign politics, but the crises never stop. It should be a time of peace and prosperity in America, but it is anything but. FBI agent Thomas Buchanan is assigned to investigate the father of a former fiancee, Ann Garrett, who dumped Buchanan while he was away to World War Two. And suddenly Buchanan finds himself on a worldwide search for both an active Soviet spy and the only woman he ever loved. In the process, he crosses paths with Hoover, Truman, Soviet moles and assassins, an opium kingpin from China, and a brigade of lowlife from the American film community. Truman's Spy is a classic cold war story of espionage and betrayal, love and regret, patriots and traitors. This is the revised and updated 2013 edition of Noel Hynd's follow-up to Flowers From Berlin. The story is big, a sprawling intricate tale of espionage, from post-war Rome and Moscow to New York, Philadelphia and Hollywood, filled with the characters, mores and attitudes of the day. And at its heart: the most crucial military secret of the decade. "Noel Hynd knows the ins and outs of Washington's agencies, public and private." - Publishers Weekly "A notch above the Ludums and Clancys of the world....." - Booklist "The novels of Noel Hynd stand out!" - Martin Levin, NY Times

Philadelphia 1777 is no place for the faint of heart. The rumble of war with the British grows louder each day, and spies for and against the Patriots are everywhere. No one is above suspicion. Still, everyday life must go on and young Maddy Rose must help her mother, especially since her father's death at the Battle of Princeton and now with her beloved brother Jonathan off with Washington's army. But when childhood games become life-and-death actions, Maddy Rose is drawn ever deeper into events that will explode beyond her imagining. As young America stands on the very brink of its fight for freedom, it becomes clear that even the smallest of citizens can play the largest of parts, and that the role of a patriot has nothing to do with age and everything to do with heart.

On a hot rainy summer night in Nassau, the Bahamas, in 1943, someone murdered Sir Harry Oakes, one of the richest men in the world, as he slept. When police found him the next morning, there were four wounds to his skull. His corpse had been abused, covered ritualistically with feathers and set on fire. The murder was perverse, horrific and jaded by anyone's standards. A few evenings later in New York City, the phone rang in the home of Alan Hynd, identified in that era by the NY Times as America's highest paid true crime reporter. The Oakes case would send the writer, with a quarter of a century of experience covering murders, to the Bahamas in wartime. He would try to bring truth to a case that was littered with a colorful cast of international characters and which, in its resolution, became unique in the annals of true crime. "Ashes From A Burning Corpse" is the fictionalized story of that writer's coverage of the case - and how it changed his life forever. It is also a literary and cultural journey into New York and the colonial Bahamas of the World War Two era, a story touching upon Hemingway, Sinatra and FDR, big-shot film and Broadway producers, crooked cops, gangsters and a murder trial so big that it knocked the world war off the front pages. Welcome to what is also a literary journey into true crime, politics, book publishing and magazine work in the World War Two era, with allusions to writers from Edmond Pearson to Scott Fitzgerald. "Ashes" is part of a trilogy titled "An American True Crime Reporter in the 20th Century," three cases which were the centerpieces of a veteran real-life crime reporter's legacy. The trilogy will also include first person novels on the original Charles Ponzi swindling case, "The Pied Piper of Boston" and the Charles Lindbergh kidnapping case, "The Crimes of The Century." The latter two titles will appear in early 2018 and feature the same writer/reporter at earlier stages of his long career. "Ingenious...Suspense fiction that stands out!" - New York Times "Noel Hynd knows the ins and outs of Washington's agencies both public and private" - Publishers Weekly "A few notches above the Ludlums and Clancys of the world." - Booklist

When a top Washington Post reporter discovers what he believes is an unauthorized CIA & military mission to destroy Iran's nuclear development sites, he finds himself caught in the middle of a global crisis, international intrigue, & a beautiful & exotic woman he desperately wants to trust. San Diego, California author Todd Easterling, originally discovered by the acclaimed Jay Garon-Brooke Agency of master novelist John Grisham fame, weaves a well-written, character-rich, high concept big story with cinematic potential & a balance of suspense & supporting romantic backdrop. Shawn Coyne, as Senior Editor at Doubleday/Random House, said of Todd's writing, "This is certainly a thriller that builds to global dimensions & I liked the way Mr. Easterling tackled the plot by having his journalist piece together the clues. The final revelation is also believable & consistent with the pervading paranoia in DC." The story follows Tom Lassiter in a fast paced race to separate facts from propaganda, & ends in a heart stopping glimpse of the new world we live in & threats posed by rogue states, or leaders, set on nuclear weapons development. Walking a razor-thin line between being seen as either a criminal, if he's wrong, or a hero if he's right, Lassiter takes matters into his own hands & stops at nothing to uncover the truth & try to stop a catastrophe of historic proportions. On his journey, Lassiter finds friendship and loyalty with his sidekick from The Washington Post, & unexpectedly develops a romantic interest with a British woman while interviewing key players behind the scenes. The story focuses on uncovering clues, determining who is involved & trying to avoid capture before getting the story out. In the end, Tom Lassiter finds himself & the United States in a mission to fix what he admittedly & inadvertently help set in motion. The climax of the story is vividly written, quickly paced, & lends itself to motion picture-like uncertainty & twists, with the fate of millions of people on the line, if not the survival of the entire planet.
