Kennedy's Spy

(The third book in the Truman's Spy series)
A novel by

It is the midwinter of 1961-62, a decade and a half into the Cold War

Though continents apart, the flashpoints of tension and political intrigue around the world have never been more intense. The stakes have never been higher. Berlin. Havana. Saigon. Moscow. Tel Aviv. Another world war could start in any of these places.

Thomas Buchanan of the FBI has worked on special assignments for two US presidents, Truman and Eisenhower. He is not inclined to work for a third, their successor, John F. Kennedy. Buchanan has nothing against Kennedy, but is not necessarily a supporter, either. If anything, his feelings on JFK are ambivalent, though like most Americans, Buchanan likes the public persona of JFK but was appalled by the Bay of Pigs disaster of 1961. Nonetheless, Buchanan’s temptation is to leave government work and apply his investigative skills in the more lucrative and less dangerous private sector.

Then everything changes. A disreputable old adversary named Jesse Chadwick - Ann's ex-husband - steps out of the shadows of Tom Buchanan’s past with an astonishing offer. But it is also an offer which carries danger personally and professionally to Tom and Ann Buchanan in addition to President Kennedy.

Thus begins
Kennedy’s Spy, the third in an ongoing espionage series by Noel Hynd. The series began with Truman’s Spy and continued with Eisenhower’s Spy. Mr. Hynd’s hew historical thriller careens across the globe in the early 1960s, evokes the era in grand style and speeds to a memorable and high impact conclusion, an astonishing story behind the headlines of the Kennedy era in Washington.
