The stunning opening of the Med Port in Tangier, Morocco in 2012 as the largest sea port and free market area in the Mediterranean is the focus of this fast-paced novel that shows the Med Port to be as much a hot seat of international intrigue in the 21st Century as it was when caravans crossed the desert. Mosques, dark alleyways, and a region and culture ripe with historical drama, lead to a transatlantic sailing to the Med Port and a visit to the Legation House in Morocco—the only U.S. National Landmark outside the U.S. borders. Curious? ABSOLUTELY! Though a work of fiction, MED PORT weaves together a thread of plausibilities from news items and historical data, to create a realistic story that spans the lives and eras of John Paul Jones, George Washington, WWII, the Cold War, and the Space Lab. The suspenseful, intricate, 400-year-old trail is pieced together when two aging Cold War spies—once Russian and American counterparts—are called by their nations to team-up to find a way to stop a devastating point of national embarrassment for the United States from becoming a bargaining chip used by the Chinese to overthrow the global financial markets. In these carefully crafted pages, kings, presidents, old friends, murder, love, intrigue, history, and the environs and city of the Med Port etch their presence vividly into the reader’s imagination.
