The manuscript is done, the editing process is well underway, and soon the fourth Nick Temple File, The Flemish Coil, will be ready for release. The story, as originally conceived, underwent a number of significant changes as it made its way to paper (digital paper, that is). The basic tagline for what emerged is: "In 1965, an unlikely cabal of conspirators - two career Army officers, a high ranking member of the United States Senate, a German assassin, and the KGB - seeks to bring the U.S. and the Soviet Union to the brink of war in Europe to render any significant military build-up in Vietnam by the U.S. militarily and politically impossible." Okay, a long tag line, but there it is. I'm excited to be at this point in the process, and I can't wait to see the book in print. I'm shooting for release by Labor Day at the latest. Yeah, buddy! Number 4 is in the bag!
