Overview

Based on astounding and often denied events, this controversial tale is finally being allowed the see the light of day. In The ILLEGAL Spy Novel, a novelist finally tells his side of a censored story, leaving absolutely nothing from his exciting – and often horrific – involvement in an alleged kidnapping that fronted a failed CIA operation, needlessly claimed the lives of over a dozen U.S. Special Operatives, and spilled an untold amount of civilian blood…
 
In a heartbreaking and confessional style, The ILLEGAL Spy Novel spares no honesty as a writer recalls his rise to publishing fame as the creator of superspy Joe Lancelot® and how that famous fictional secret agent brought him to cooperate with the real-life Central Intelligence Agency in the Summer of 2010. Through the eyes of a storyteller, we see not only the unfolding disaster in the voice of an experienced novelist, but also in the prose of an author witnessing his worldview collapse underfoot with each beautiful but painful word while his convictions and beliefs are pulled down from fictive pillars.

Running from the corridors of the CIA to the deathly streets of Kabul and finally to a hellish interpretation of northern Pakistan, readers of The ILLEGAL Spy Novel will be staggered by the brutal objectivity rendered by every subjective sentence. But more importantly, this is the first and only uncensored book telling the truths about what actually happened in a series of gory catastrophes that Barnes Helgeson of Democracy Sunset called “the equivalent of the Book of Job in the history of the War on Terror”.
