Overview

Searing sensual nature of Jacqueline is the yin/yang of a life...in a foreign world where power, wealth and corruption reign supreme.

The secret of C Street is secrecy. When Solomon Rosenberg, a twenty year veteran of C Street, government lawyer and bi-polar CIA assassin breaks the silence by recording his missions, Jacqueline is left holding the evidence of the treasonous acts. The CIA, the men of C Street, are one step behind, on a mountain top, in London and all the way to Costa Rica. Palestine is willing to pay, and Israel’s is offering to help. With the evidence of espionage, murder, and the computer hijacking of America, the game is on…


“I ask no forgiveness for my work on C Street. Men like me believe God is our judge, or more honestly stated, we believe we are gods.”

Editorial Reviews

book back - Michael Cogdill
"Your book is like a conversation with Ian Fleming! Way to recall the atmosphere of 007. Dan Brown has a page-turner competitor! Bravo!"

Amazon - Laura Schultz
The espionage/thriller novel C Street by Claudette Walker is a roller coaster ride of suspense, tension and excitement. It is next to impossible to categorize C Street as merely a thriller, as it contains a myriad of components that demonstrates the author's ability to transcend genres. Ms. Walker has an uncanny ability to transport the reader into a foreign world where power, wealth and corruption reign supreme.
Amazon - PJ Schott
Exotic, Erotic Thriller Had Me Blushing 50 Shades of Red..."C Street" is such a powerful, heart-pounding thriller... It was filled with so much searing sensuality, my mother would have had it on the top shelf... With a background in investigative journalism I learned that's not easy to get to the heart of the matter ... and even harder to garner the courage to speak the truth. Claudette Walker has done both ...The Way the World Works in the context of a powerful, glamorous, fast-paced thriller..

Chilling, exhaustively researched, and slyly humorous, Claudette Walker's "C Street" is a well-painted and entertaining spy service portrait that strikes all too close to the realities of corrupt governance...The corrupt government agents are painted real as the world and with twice the size ego, the settings are vivid and well-researched, and the heroine is a sympathetic, tragic, intensely human figure. A recommended read! ~ Entrepreneur and grandson of former FDIC Chairman Bill Seidman.

"Men like us believe we are gods," is the innuendo of the belief of CIA operatives woven into the fabric of C Street, a novel by Claudette Walker. Possessing the absolute power with unlimited resources of the government's Central Intelligence Agency, Jacqueline Bovia Rosenberg (having shortened her name to Jacqueline Rose) is being watched as she traces the prior path of her late husband's career working within the clandestine organization. Solomon Rose had amassed evidence of the agency's illegal and unethical activities throughout many international operations, and had a collection of audio tapes secretly held for his wife to retrieve in case of his death. Although his death came about naturally, Jacqueline remained under surveillance and investigation by the CIA until the agency could get possession of this revealing and possibly incriminating series of audio tapes. Unfortunately for Jacqueline, the CIA represented not the only government seeking to get at these secrets, and to get to her! From her London home, Jacqueline traveled to the US; first to Tampa, Florida, and then up to Manhattan on a mission to retrieve the tapes. Constantly looking over her shoulder, she takes precautions and she believes she's not being followed until she meets an Israeli colleague of Solomon's when she is given new identification documents; surprisingly showing a photo of her taken without her knowledge. Knowing very well not to trust anyone, she becomes swept into the current of people with power and influence, deep into a world of sex and violence, murder and betrayal with characters not having her own best self interest in mind. Claudette Walker takes the reader on a very detailed journey throughout the secret methods of falsifying responsibilities within the back operations of government intelligence organizations in C Street, revealing new and fascinating methods of how our history has been manipulated by those in power. Walker masterfully develops and sustains an intelligent level of suspense throughout her novel, capturing and holding hostage the reader while being totally in control of the information revealed. Unlike authors which use quick "snippets" of storytelling to create within the reader's mind a series of fast moving action scenes, Walker embellishes her scenes with descriptions based on her research and experience. She noticeably narrates as seen through a feminine mind's eye of Jacqueline, complete with the coupling of vulnerability, her fortitude of strength, and instinct for self preservation. Her novel is clearly written in a fashion which lends itself to her screenplay adaptation, which I believe is available, and would no doubt gain innumerable accolades by audiences especially for having her feminine character, Jacqueline Rose, yet appear once again and become so memorably articulated. C Street has it all, and done in a way you'll be looking over your shoulder when reading this extraordinarily entertaining book.
