Mystery, history and romance carry the reader through this story that makes just a little too much sense. I consider A Cold War Story a “must read” book for anyone who wants to understand where America has been and ponders where we should go from here.

For most Americans, awareness of terrorism began with 9-11 when U.S. borders were invaded. But when did terrorism begin, really? And how could the Cold War of so long ago have any connections with today’s events in the Middle East? In a fast-paced and well-researched historical novel, author Jim Conkey draws a terrifying picture of how terrorism threatened world peace long before the twin towers fell.
