The Thyssen Affair
by Mozelle Richardson
Paperback: 460 pages
Publisher: Mountain West Publishing
(4 1/2 out of 5 stars)
A top-notch Cold War spy thriller. Canyon “Cane” Eliot is a Colorado rancher with a past — a spy past. He is pulled back into the CIA by Peter, an old friend, for a simple mission. It isn’t long before Cane finds himself tangling with the Israeli Mossad and the Russian KGB over a WW II era German skull.
Richardson puts together some interesting characters; I liked the beautiful Russian spy Anya. I couldn’t help but think of our recent spy ring scandal with a beauty spy named Anna “Anya” Chapman. Life imitating art?
Nazi treasure, Russian KGB, Israeli Mossad, and microfilm makes for James Bond and Indiana Jones style goodness. A great romp through the world during the “cold war” era.
I give it a solid 4 1/2 German Skulls out of 5.
I received a complimentary copy of “The Thyssen Affair” by Mozelle Richardson from The Cadence Group for review purposes.
