Women in espionage, visit CROSSROADS, a first-rate thrill ride for thriller
Monday, November 30, 2009  11:28:00 AM

by Steven Nedelton



Action/Thriller
CROSSROADS has a number of characters but, the most interesting are the spy women. Visit www.snedelton.com.

Among its many colorful characters, Crossroads portrays a very brave US agent Katherine and also several, very negative spy characters--a mislead young French woman, Benoit, who became a Soviet mole/French traitor, and the Soviet expert murderess Dr. Tatiana. Here is a brief excerpt from Crossroads (http://www.snedelton.com").

Print ISBN 1-934337-56-0

"Her wartime friends quickly realized her potential and she was promptly given a position within the new French government. Her initial assignments involved multiple, often ill-defined,duties. She was a semi-obscure cog in the complicated mechanism of a command that involved multiple departments, and reported indirectly to one of the heads through an intermediary. It was a position that allowed her access—albeit limited—to the most secret documents relating to the French development of missiles, aircraft, and nuclear weapons. She was well protected by her distinguished family name, her patriotism embellished by expert friends to such a degree that no one ever questioned her other false credentials. Particularly in the beginning, when the scrutiny was often less than pro forma.

Yet, all that exposure to the government inner life would have been insufficient by itself. To get to the real important material one had to sift through hundreds of mundane, often useless tidbits….”

 

 

CROSSROADS REVIEWS (Crossroads at http://www.SNEDELTON.com)

 

"Reminiscent of John Le Carre with a dash of Ian Flemming, Steven Nedelton's Crossroads plunges us deep into the complicated and not yet thawed Cold War mind-power experimentations and its dubious dark characters that once inhabited that volatile underworld. Written with an uncanny knack for plot and time-shifting, this 21st century thriller also introduces us to 20 th century CIA Agent David Tallman, the main character who possesses depth, passion and, in the grand tradition of Hemingway at his best, more than his fair share of tragedy and wickedness. An unusually multi-layered and absorbing novel, Crossroads will be and should be read by thriller and spy novel enthusiasts all over the globe."

--Vincent Zandri, author of 'As Catch Can' and the forthcoming 'Moonlight Falls.'

 

“A techno-thriller in the tradition of Tom Clancy, Crossroads combines the best of Cold War era cat-and-mouse espionage with a healthy dose of conspiracy topped off with a bit of mind control. Steven Nedelton displays a masterful sense of suspense as he winds his way through the intricacies of back room political machinations. With a keen eye for detail, Nedelton leads us down the dark road of international intrigue, assassination and real world politics. Crossroads is a first-rate thrill ride that will keep you tearing through the pages to reach the dramatic conclusion.”

--Sean Harris, author Dead of Winter

 

“Crossroads is an international spy thriller with an intriguing plot that twists and turns thus engaging the interest of the reader till the final page. It contains an array of interesting characters ranging from the bottom of the food chain like Mme Benoit, an ex-cop turned killer for hire Hans Polf to the top Russian Special Operations boss Sergey Sokolov. In this spy game no one is spared, no one is indispensable. It’s how each character meets his/her end that makes the plot suspenseful and satisfying as a spy thriller. The plot flirts back and forth, from the United States, to Russia and to France giving it an international flair.

Steven Nedelton has a flair for details – a good example is how the fallen Volkov stalked Solkolov to have his revenge. Time and time again, Nedelton painstakingly builds up a scene before the violence erupted, giving the plot suspense and visual detail. He has a keen eye for details.

A good read for a lazy day at home.”

--Mei L, a reviewer
