Blue Heartsby James Lehrer
Back in print and available for the first time in paperbook: a thriller set among the power players and permanent establishment of Washington D.C., by the renowned journalist and best-selling author. Charles Avenue Henderson and Bruce Conn Clark shared a CIA mission in late November of 1963 that helped change the course of world history. When Henderson, now living the quiet life of a bed and breakfast owner with his beloved wife in rural West Virginia, approaches former Secretary of State Clark at a posh D.C. restaurant and suggests they let some of yesterday's secrets out today Clark responds with a plan that puts Henderson's life at risk and tests both of their dormant "spook" skills. Henderson underestimated the depth of Clark's secrets and Clark underestimated Henderson's resolve. It's a mistake that neither will make again as the old allies match cloaks and daggers against each other.
