ECHO CHAMBERS by Richard Himmel

Amazon

“Intrigue to satisfy the most demanding reader.” Booklist

ECHO CHAMBERS is back… Richard Himmel’s eerily prescient thriller that foretold today’s rise of China, and the power they would exert over the world. What was once fiction has become a terrifying reality.

It’s 1982. Angus MacGlendon is an American business tycoon targeted by the Chinese as a key player in their secret plot to become a global industrial and economic superpower…and they will do whatever it takes, from blackmail to violence, to get him to cooperate. He soon becomes a target of the CIA, KGB and spies from Taiwan. To survive, he must play a complicated game of international intrigue and terror with the fate of the world in the balance…

“An exciting novel of international intrigue and terror.” Cincinnati Enquirer

“A novel of intrigue and espionage…(the characters) are leathered, unquenchable, sexually cruel people who apply their erotic meanness to the spy games they play… their passion is always entwined with the fates of whole nations. International affairs seem to be synchronized with the protagonists’ abilities to achieve simultaneous orgasm. High-level espionage becomes an attempt to block such a climax. CIA-tus interrutus , if you will. The action is there, the good guys are defined, skulls and gullets are endangered at every turn. The fate of the world hangs by a thread.” Chicago Tribune

THE 23RD WEB by Richard Himmel

Amazon

“Slick…there is action, conspiracy, plenty of sex. Himmel knows how to keep everything at a boil. He’s a good storyteller in the Arthur Hailey style. There is so much action that the reader is swept along. It’s like a B-movie of international intrigue. This book will amuse and entertain you.” The New York Times

A cold-blooded Arab sheik and his army of psychopathic terrorists use blackmail, kidnapping and murder to force hundreds of rich Amercan Jews to stop giving money to Israel, part of a complex effort to economically cripple the Jewish nation. One man, Justice department attorney Peter Frankel, leads the fight against the insidious plot, drawing him into an inescapable web of twisted sex and brutal violence.

“Kinky, muscular and menacing,” Vogue Magazine

“The simplicity of Himmel’s plot is what makes his book fascinating. ..and it all seems very plausible. The characters are believable (with) large doses of sex sprinkled liberally throughout.” Berkeley Gazette

“Notable for its ingenuity…the conflict is entertaining as the terrorists and American supporters of Israel face each other in a battle of nerves and wills.”South Bend Tribute

“A surprising climax.” Tampa Tribune

“The pace of the action is steady and the wind-up is satisfying.” Publishers Weekly

SPY GAMES – Four Complete Novels by Sterling Noel and Geoffrey Wagner

Amazon

Four brilliant, wildly acclaimed novels of cold war espionage and unrelenting suspense.

I KILLED STALIN * I SEE RED * RUN FOR YOUR LIFE * SEASON OF ASSASSINS

I KILLED STALIN by Sterling Noel
A covert, American agency known as “Bureau X” gives U.S. Naval Intelligence agent Alexis Bodine a new face, a new identity, and a suicide mission — infiltrate the Soviet government as a spy, work his way up to Stalin, and assassinate him before World War III begins.

“The high adventure read of the year, possibly even the decade.” King Features Syndicate

I SEE RED by Sterling Noel
It’s 1955. Pete LaSalle is a retired spy who is recruited by a secret U.S. counter-espionage agency to find a rogue atomic scientist with a troubling, personal connection to his past. The action rockets from Florida to New York, and on to Mexico. Along the way, LaSalle is framed for murder and teams up with his ex-wife to stop a horrific plot in a race-against-time that climaxes in a breathtaking finale of non-stop, pulse-pounding action.

“An awesome work of mid-century action-adventure fiction. Any reader looking for an exciting paperback will find that I SEE RED definitely delivers the goods. The bulk of the book is extremely violent and hard-boiled as hell. ” The Paperback Warrior

RUN FOR YOUR LIFE by Sterling Noel
Banker Randall McCarey is an extremely dangerous ex-spy, skilled in handling a variety of weapons and lethal women, who is drafted by the CIA for a secret mission in France tied to his work in counter-espionage during the war… and who is targeted for death from the moment he lands.

“Tops in spy-suspense stories” New York Journal-American

SEASON OF ASSASSINS by Geoffrey Wagner
World War II is over but the terror remains for one guilty officer stained with the blood of his own men…and stalked by an enemy obsessed with violent revenge. Only one other man knew the crimes of Philip Stevens… who had shot one of his own soldiers during a raid behind enemy lines in Africa, knowingly sent to other men straight into German fire, and faked his way out of battle into a hospital, where he perverted the tenderness of love-starved nurse to his own, desperate needs. And while Stevens struggles to cover his ugly tracks, the sole witness to his cowardice relentlessly pursues him in a chilling, suspense thriller that leads to a stunning climax.

I KILLED STALIN by Sterling Noel

Amazon

The Year – 1959. The place – Inside Russia. The Plot – Kill the Red Dictator.

A covert, American agency known as “Bureau X” gives U.S. Naval Intelligence agent Alexis Bodine a new face, a new identity, and a suicide mission — infiltrate the Soviet government as a spy, work his way up to Stalin, and assassinate him before World War III begins.

At the time this controversial novel was published in 1951, I KILLED STALIN was a daring, “near future” thriller, billed by the publisher as a “great fictional account of espionage and high adventure that throbs with the urgency of tomorrow’s headlines.” It was a high-wire act for author Sterling Noel that polarized critics, who either heaped him with praise and lashed him with scorn (for example, Harrison Smith, the President of the prestigious The Saturday Review of Literature called it “a barbarity…there may be others, besides this reviewer, who wish that it was never written. The book can be used by Russian propaganda to perpetuate the libel throught the world that we are brutalized warmongers.” Now it’s an exciting read and, instead of being a futuristic thriller, it’s an unusual time capsule of post-War America in the throes of the cold war.

“A rip-roaring adventure novel. The suspense is real.” The Des Moines Register
