Content

Gerald Hammond is the exception to the rule; an honorable spy, whose lofty principles have brought him nothing but loneliness and isolation.  With the war in Europe at an end, Hammond returns to Washington only to find his unit disbanded and his wife moved out of the marital home. 
Ostracized by the Washington elite, publicly humiliated by an unfaithful wife, and scorned by former friends and colleagues, he is forced to take a mundane job with an insurance company.
.
. But then comes the call.
The State Department wants him to rescue a young woman, trapped in Soviet East Germany.
Should he succeed a plum job at The State Department awaits.  Desperate for deliverance from his humdrum existence, Hammond accepts the assignment.
He heads into enemy territory, unaware of the sinister force that sponsored his mission or of the unseen dangers that lie in wait.
He only knows that he must somehow save the girl to save himself, but as his enemies close in, and ever-more disturbing revelations come to light, Gerald Hammond begins to wonder which poses the greatest threat.
.
.
The enemy he runs from, the friend he runs to, or the girl he was sent to save? "Fast paced thriller with lots of action - I couldn't put it down!!" - Amazon Reviewer  "Delicious spy novel, bold and graphic." - Amazon Reviewer  "A tremendous book - a definite page turner"- Amazon Reviewer  "This is the best spy novel I have read in quite some time" - Amazon Reviewer  "I purchased this based on the reviews, and it exceeded expectations" - Amazon Reviewer  "And be warned, there's bad language, sex, sadistic murders, regular murders, etc.
in this book.
It's a spy novel...stay out of the kitchen if you don't like this kind of heat." - Amazon Reviewer

On a covert operation, in Soviet-occupied Germany, Hammond is unaware of the powerful forces that sponsor and oppose his mission.

About the Author

Michael Patrick Clark was born on The Fourth of July 1950. 
He spent the first few years of his life in an orphanage, before adoption brought a new home and a change of name.
Unhappy at home, Michael joined the armed forces as a boy apprentice.
He trained in telecommunications, and subsequently transferred to a specialist mobile-communications unit.
Over the ensuing years he travelled the world; living and working in environments as exotic, hostile, and diverse as the Libyan Desert, Europe, the Australian outback, South-East Asia, and Central and South America.
In the late seventies Michael moved into the high-tech industry.
He worked predominantly on international consultancy, for North-East U.S.
based technology manufacturers, but after twenty-five years, made the life-changing decision to leave the industry and move to Spain.
Since then he has written and published three books: The Folks at Fifty-Eight, Flying with Cuckoos, (both also available from Amazon) and his second and latest espionage thriller: Hierarchies of Greed.
