Warren Adler's & James C. Humes' #1 bestselling historical fiction thriller, currently in development as a feature film.

"...Adler & Humes have managed to make a crucial moment in modern history come alive through the characters involved in it, painstakingly depicted in their idiosyncrasies, aspirations, fears and daily routines" --Thriller Books Journal

"Target Churchill, set in the 1940s, has all the breathless pacing of a strong thriller..." --Historical Novel Society

"James C Humes and Warren Adler, with their different skills, combine well to create a meticulously researched thriller and it's hard to tell what is fact and what is fiction." --Crime Fiction Lover

As Great Britain and the United States celebrate a victorious end to WWII, Joseph Stalin's relentless Soviet Union is creeping across Eastern Europe leaving a trail of devastation and murder in its wake.

Winston Churchill, the cigar-puffing icon of the British fighting spirit, embarks on a crusade to lift the veil of secrecy that hangs over Stalin's mission. Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri sets the diplomatic stage upon which the world's political players grapple for supremacy as Churchill delivers his fated Iron Curtain speech on March 5th, 1946.

Soviet operatives have infiltrated British and American governments at the highest level. As Churchill prepares to launch the Cold War, Stalin unleashes his trained mole, an American Nazi who served in Hitler's SS. His mission: assassinate Winston Churchill.

Churchill travels with a lone bodyguard, W.H. Thompson, a former British police officer who protected Churchill faithfully through the turbulent years of war. Thompson alone senses danger, but will his trained instincts and vigilance be enough to protect the former Prime Minister from a ruthless killer? In this gripping historical thriller, battles are fought not on the beaches, on the landing grounds, in the fields, on the streets, or in the hills, but behind closed doors in the shadows of espionage.
