What was the deadly secret of Shuller's Land? The last crop on the Long Island farm was planted in 1942, the year the land died from the horror of that one long night. Decades later, the abandoned weathered barn that leaned precariously from old age still waited for a strong wind to complete the collapse before someone discovered its horrible secret. Investigator Mitchell Pappas found artifacts at the farm belonging to World War II German spies. So began his mission to unravel the mystery of the forgotten farm and the disappearance of the spies and the farmer's teenage daughter, Melissa.

From the Author:

This is the latest version of The Forgotten Mission, copyrighted in 2012, republished through an Amazon.com book division.  The original publisher was Kensington Publishing, in New York City.   See  more on the Kindle version.

     NOTE:  I was intrigued by an actual event of four German spies landing on Long Island in 1942 whose mission was to blow up the Hell's Gate Bridge and the Consolidated Edison utilities along the East River.  They were caught  before doing damage.  One turned himself over to the FBI.  President Roosevelt ordered three to be executed as spies.  The fourth, who informed the FBI, was spared and sent to a POW camp in Alabama.  After the war, he returned home.
     The premise of The Forgotten Mission challenged me with the questions - What if four other spies landed later who were never caught and never returned to Germany after the war?  What happened to them and to the farmer's teenage daughter, Melissa?
     Two persons, who probably had nothing better to do, told me they read the book twice.
