The Actor?

A Thriller and Love Story at the Height of the Cold War

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


George Toomey is a successful Broadway actor. His life is one of celebrity, leading ladies, and dinners at Sardis. At home, his 12-room penthouse with a view, he has a beautiful wife and two daughters. One day in 1959, everything changes for George. He is approached by the CIA to enter the U.S.S.R., during the Cold War, as an entertainer in a cultural exchange tour. The job is simple: handle messages and documents given to him and, of course, give a stellar performance that will make Russian audiences fall in love with him. Behind the Iron Curtain, however, the job gets more complicated than George or his handler could ever have anticipated, and lives, secrets, and countries are put on the line. What unfolds is a fast-paced thriller, filled with danger, mystery, and state secrets. Will the United States and the CIA back George up when the mission goes wrong? Will George escape from the KGB agents who have made it their sworn mission to kill him? The spy game is one that George isn’t prepared for… will he learn how to play it in time to save his life? George’s story is a metaphor for resilience, to which everyone can relate.
