With the voice of forty-five years in the Intelligence Community, Bayard & Holmes explore the lives of the espionage elite.

  • A one-legged woman operating behind Nazi lines, deemed to be "the most dangerous spy in all of France."
  • A young man left for dead, not worth a Viet Cong bullet, who survives to fight terrorists for six more decades.
  • A homeless child who becomes an iconic showgirl, entertaining world leaders while running spy rings from the top stages of Europe.
  • A traitor operating at the top of Western intelligence whose betrayals caused the deaths of thousands.

More heroic and more treacherous than any fiction Hollywood could produce are these genuine operatives of the Shadow World, who prove that "we're only human" is not an excuse to fail, but a reason to succeed.

About the Author

Piper Bayard is an author and a recovering attorney with a college degree or two. She is also a belly dancer and a former hospice volunteer. She has been working daily with her good friend Jay Holmes for the past decade, learning about foreign affairs, espionage history, and field techniques for the purpose of writing fiction and nonfiction. She currently pens espionage nonfiction and international spy thrillers with Jay Holmes, as well as post-apocalyptic fiction of her own.

Jay Holmes is a forty-something-year veteran of field espionage operations and a senior member of the Intelligence Community with experience spanning from the Cold War fight against the Soviets, the East Germans, and the various terrorist organizations they sponsored to the present Global War on Terror. He is unwilling to admit to much more than that. Piper is the public face of their partnership.

Together, Bayard & Holmes author non-fiction articles and books on espionage and foreign affairs, as well as fictional international spy thrillers. They are also the bestselling authors of The Spy Bride from the Risky Brides Bestsellers Collection and were featured contributors for Social In Worldwide, Inc.

When they aren’t writing or, in Jay’s case, busy with “other work,” Piper and Jay are enjoying time with their families, hiking, exploring back roads of America, talking foreign affairs, laughing at their own rude jokes until the wee hours, and questing for the perfect chocolate cake recipe. If you think you have that recipe, please share it with them at
