Everything had happened so fast for Erik Brown and more than anything he needed answers to his questions. It all started when Erik and his family visited Berlin while on vacation in Europe. Erik had found himself in the company of Monika Martin, an old woman who claimed to have known and worked with Victor - Erik’s late grandfather - during the Cold War. Monika had left Erik with the intention of meeting him again, insisting that she had some information for him. However, Erik was arrested the following day by the police as the top suspect in Monika’s murder. It turned out that Monika was an ex-spy labeled as a wanted criminal who had disappeared close to fifty years ago and had only reappeared specifically to talk to Erik. Now she was dead. Erik was forced to call his CIA friend John Smith for help. Immediately upon his release from jail, he narrowly survived abduction by unknown assailants. He and Smith find themselves in a stolen car fleeing for their lives after a deadly shootout on the streets of Berlin. Was someone trying to kill Erik and who killed Monika? Find out more in J. Warren Weaver’s A Killer of Spies.
