              'Cold War spy fiction in the grand tradition, neatly plotted betrayals in that shadow world where no one can be trusted and agents are haunted by their own moral compromises' - Joseph Kanon, New York Times bestselling author of Istanbul Passage and The Good GermanWashington D. C...., 1953. The Cold War is heating up: McCarthyism, with all its fear and demagoguery, is raging in the nation's capital, and Joseph Stalin's death has left a dangerous power vacuum in the Soviet Union.The CIA, meanwhile, is reeling from a double agent within their midst. Someone is selling secrets to the Soviets, compromising missions around the globe. Undercover agents have been assassinated, and anti-Communist plots are being cut short in ruthlessly efficient fashion. The CIA director knows any news of the traitor, whose code name is Protocol, would be a national embarrassment and compromise the entire agency.George Mueller seems to be the perfect man to help find the mole: Yale-educated; extensive experience running missions in Eastern Europe; an operative so dedicated to his job that it left his marriage in tatters. The Director trusts him. Mueller, though, has secrets of his own, and as he digs deeper into the case, making contact with a Soviet agent, suspicion begins to fall on him as well. Until Protocol is found, no one can be trusted, and everyone is at risk.'As I read An Honorable Man, I kept coming back to George Smiley and The Spy Who Came in from the Cold. That's how good this book is. Pick up this book. You'll love it' - Michael Harvey, New York Times-bestselling author of The Chicago Way and The Governor's Wife

              Paul Vidich follows up his acclaimed debut spy thriller with a suspenseful tale of Cold War espionage set in 1950s Cuba, as foreign powers compete to influence the outcome of a revolution.The CIA director persuades retired agent George Mueller to go to Cuba during the perilous la...st throes of the Batista regime to investigate Toby Graham, a CIA operative suspected of assisting Fidel Castro's rebel fighters with diverted CIA weaponry. Posing as a magazine travel writer, Mueller reconnects with Jack and Liz Malone, old friends who have relocated to Cuba and are unable to see the coming upheaval in their lives, both political and personal. Toby's betrayals aren't limited to his mission, and Mueller must make a choice between justice and duty, between loyalty to his profession and to his friends.Paul Vidich has written a powerful story of ideals, passions, betrayals, and corrupting political rivalries in the months before Castro's triumphant march into Havana on New Year's Day 1959. This sequel showcases the widely praised talents of Paul Vidich, who Booklist says, 'writes with an economy of style that acclaimed novelists might do well to emulate.''A simmering, old-fashioned literary spy tale' - Publishers Weekly'The Good Assassin opens up Hemingway's Cuba. Possessing Alan Furst's attention for period detail and the deft character touches of John Le Carre, Vidich has quickly carved out a place for himself among the very first rank of espionage writers. Masterful.' - Michael Harvey, New York Times bestselling author of The Chicago Way and Brighton'Paul Vidich's likeable and reluctant spy, George Mueller, will keep readers guessing in this eerily real Cuba of 1958. The Good Assassin is a keen historical adventure from the best noir tradition' - Elizabeth Kostova, New York Times bestselling author of The Historian

As his wife and children grieve, the details of the incident remain buried for twenty-two years.With the release of the Rockefeller Commission report on illegal CIA activities in 1975, the Wilson case suddenly becomes news again. Wilson's family and the public are demanding answers, especially as some come to suspect the CIA of foul play, and agents in the CIA, FBI, and White House will do anything to make sure the truth doesn't get out.Enter agent Jack Gabriel, an old friend of the Wilson family who is instructed by the CIA director to find out what really happened to Wilson.

              Paul Vidich follows up his acclaimed debut spy thriller An Honorable Man with a keen historical adventure from the best noir tradition (Elizabeth Kostova, #1 New York Times bestselling author), focused on Cold War espionage, set in 1950s Cuba, as foreign powers compete to influen...ce the outcome of a revolution. Former CIA Agent George Mueller arrives in Havana in August 1958, during the last months of dictator Fulgencio Batista's reign, to look into the activities of Toby Graham--an in-country CIA officer suspected of harboring sympathies for the rebels fighting the unpopular Batista regime. Specifically, Mueller's old friend Graham may be putting weapons into the hands of Castro's forces, in bold defiance of the United States arms embargo on the island. But when Mueller uncovers a world of deceit as the FBI, CIA, and State Department compete to influence the outcome of the revolution in the face of the brutal dictatorship's imminent collapse, he realizes that nothing and no one is what they seem. This is a powerful story of ideals, passions, betrayals, and corrupting political rivalries in the months before Castro's march into Havana on New Year's Day, 1959. As New York Times bestselling author Michael Harvey raves, It's a masterful effort and the author's best work to date.
