The Flemish Coil: A Nick Temple File

Two Cold War spies are assassinated during a midnight exchange on the Glienicke Bridge in Berlin. A Holocaust survivor is murdered in Miami, Florida. The United States escalates the war in Vietnam. Three seemingly unrelated events are slowly revealed as pieces to a puzzle that involves betrayal, murder, and treason in The Flemish Coil. Nick Temple, charter member of the CIA, is relaxing at the Ilikai Hotel in Honolulu high above Waikiki beach when he learns that an asset he used to run when he was the station chief in Berlin has been assassinated during a botched spy exchange at the height of the Cold War. Temple is en route from South Vietnam, preparing to deliver a scathing report to the Pentagon about America’s prospects for success in another proxy war in Asia. Upon his return to Langley, Temple is charged with finding out what the hell went wrong in Berlin. The hunt is on, a hunt that ends up being a race to stop a Cold War confrontation that could easily explode into World War III.

The crucifixion on Golgotha. An earthquake in medieval Europe. The 18th century illegitimate birth of a Romanov heir. The brutal murder of Tsar Nicholas II and his family. The theft of a holy relic from a Baghdad museum. Two millennia of unrelated events come together as a shadowy cabal of wealthy and powerful Russians conspire to revive Imperial Russia in a way that could make it the world's undisputed superpower. The Holy Lance is a 21st century thriller about a conspiracy nearly a hundred years in the making, and the only thing standing between the conspirators and success is an unlikely team made up of a disgraced CIA agent, a pair of low-level Russian intelligence operatives, and the ex-girlfriend of the man who could be the next Tsar of Russia!
