Overview

Without warning or preparation, Albert Stanislavsky, an unassuming, recently widowed, retirement age, writer of mystery novels, found himself the caretaker of a bright, twelve year old great nephew. The boy's parents, sleeper spies, had recently died at the hands of their own countryman as the FBI closed in on them leaving Jason parentless, homeless, and in danger for his life from his parent's former colleagues who would leave no stone unturned to make certain anything the boy had known about their activities died with him.
The FBI provided new identities for Albert and Jason and placed them in a small town in the upper Midwest where Albert assumed ownership of a cozy bookstore frequented by tourists from around the world. Gradually, they formed a genuine and meaningful bond as grampa and grandson. As time passed they came to have reason to believe they had been found out and began taking steps to protect themselves. In the process they discovered the little community was the center of a major resettlement operation for spies and international criminals. The clandestine flights of a mysterious, silent airplane, came to play a central role in the story.
Along the way, their inquisitiveness about that got them captured and their lives put in certain jeopardy. Through a serious of creative, hi-tech, manipulations from their place of detention, they managed to alert the authorities – their FBI contacts – who they came to learn were not the FBI at all but were agents of Jason's parents' country with still another agenda. There were the unexpected good guys, of course, who, in the end helped them prevail.
The boy learned about life and living it from the old man. The old man learned about life and living it from the boy.

Editorial Reviews

email - Bobby Carter
Lots of excitement, a little romance, really bad bad-guys and really good good-guys. A young teen boy suddenly finds out his life was all a lie. His parents were sleeper spies and the country they worked for was now out to silence him and the wonderful older man who volunteered to take him under his wing. Lots of really good conversation about topics important to teens (and old guys, too, I suppose). It is a great read for folks from about eleven to 111.

Meet the Author

Writing under seven pen names, by genre*, the author has written nearly 80 books and novels and many hundreds of shorter stories. With an academic background and decades of hands-on experience in education and clinical psychology, he brings a sensitivity and understanding about the human condition, which supports believable characters and helps develop important story lines with which readers can immediately identify. In his novels, he chooses to write about teen life and struggles, fostering mutually productive relationships between youngsters and older adults, mysteries, action/adventure, and mainstream adult fiction. His several personal improvement books evolve from his lifelong involvement in the process of helping folks improve the quality and focus of their lives. He lives his life and writes from a base of positive social values (not to be confused with a religious point of view). He speaks widely on topics related to his books and stories, the process of writing, and living mutually facilitating lives.
