The Infant Of Prague. In the majestic silence of Chartres cathedral, Deveraux--code name November Man--receives his assignment: help Czechoslovakias' cultural liaison cross over to the West. A hard enough job, even without the added complicatin of an act of God. For in a humble Chicago parish church, the sacred statue of the Infant of Prague is found weeping real tears. A visiting Czech child star actress, transfigured by the wondrous event, declares, on live television, her intent to remain in American in the name of Christ and freedom. Only an operative as cynical and seasoned as the November Man can sense the sinister link between two dramatic, yet apparently unrelated defections. A miracle has plunged him into a vast global adventure. And it will take a miracle to get him through it alive.

Codename Flame. Codename: FLAME is the parallel to Dr. Niklewicz's first riveting historical novel, “Last Train to Dachau”. That story was based on his mother’s wartime experiences and the plight of the Miller family that lived and survived the terrible challenges and brutality that was forced upon them by the Nazis. As was his first book, Codename: FLAME is an historical novel based on the true-life struggles of courageous Poles in the time of war. His father Stanislaw Niklewicz was such a person and his life is featured in this second book. The contrast between the two stories is vast. The Millers, a family of five survived through patience and the strength of a family unit that did everything to stay together. Stanislaw on the other hand, was all alone as he ran away from his pending draft into the Hitler Youth at the age of 15; eventually becoming a Partisan fighter. Follow the hardships that Stanislaw endured while being alone in the forests of Poland; first as a teenage Boy Scout courier and then as a Partisan fighter. The saga of Stanislaw (Staszek) is a portrait of a defiant boy turned into a man by the necessity and passion to live free or die fighting against the tyranny of the Germans. His defiance and determination for freedom continued even after being captured behind enemy lines during a secret mission and his subsequent brutal imprisonment at the infamous Mathausen Concentration Camp. As you read this book, try to think of what it was like to be a boy soldier at 15. Then try to think of the courage and fortitude it took to survive through the torture of an extermination camp. A camp that had no other purpose than to work you to death; something you were equally determined to boldly defy.

And this time, the spy called Double Eagle is determined that the November Man won't survive.

The November Man. (Previously published as There Are No Spies.) SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING PIERCE BROSNAN - IN THEATERS AUGUST 27TH! The classic thriller featuring the lethally cool U.S. government spy code-named The November Man The president learned long ago that the CIA could not be trusted. And so he created his own group of deadly efficient men to gather independent intelligence: a watchdog organization to keep the CIA in check. R Section was born. "There are no spies . . . " Until he heard those four simple words, Devereaux thought he'd left his days in R Section behind. He was no longer The November Man, an American field officer in the vice-grip of duty and danger--and the most brilliant agent R Section had ever produced. When he receives the cryptic message from Hanley, his former handler, Devereaux has no idea he's about to be reactivated into a mission to save both his life and R Section itself. He's not aware that a beautiful KGB agent has been ordered to stalk and kill him-or that Hanley is now in a government-subsidized asylum for people with too many secrets. And he doesn't know that zero hour ticks closer for an operation to catch a master spy . . . with Devereaux the designated pawn. What The November Man doesn't know can kill him.

"An expertly informed treatment of the Rosenberg case, using fiction to fill in the shadowy places where our imagination wants to go."—Gary Kern, author of A Death in Washington and The Kravchenko Case A thriller, largely based on fact, that tells the inside story of the Rosenberg spy network and the fate of the famous couple that was sentenced to die on the electric chair. The truth finally comes out with the memoirs of their Soviet handler who tells all (or . . . almost all) with the blessing of the KGB, now known as the SVR. But which story is Kalistrat telling? The true facts, or those manipulated to ensure that the Rosenbergs appear to be innocent? How the story unfolds and what the Russians were really seeking becomes a nonstop espionage novel set in the 1940s and '50s. Was Julius Rosenberg paying for the mistakes of others? Did the KGB really want him and Ethel to live? Were there last-minute top secret negotiations between the United States and the Soviet Union that could have saved the Rosenbergs’ lives? These and other questions are asked and finally answered.
