New York, January 1951. When columnist Dennis Collins returns to his hometown after covering the brutal Chosin Reservoir battle in Korea, he finds his newspaper closed down and New York on edge about a possible European war with the Russians. Collins is reluctantly drawn into an investigation of leaked American military secrets that focuses on the British diplomats Donald Maclean and Kim Philby (later exposed as members of the infamous Cambridge Five spy ring).

As his search for the truth takes him to Washington, Paris, and London, Collins enters a shadowy world of intrigue where moral boundaries blur and the line between justice and revenge is easily crossed. The North Building tells a story of love and personal redemption, seamlessly blending fact and fiction as it takes the reader from the foxholes of Korea to the corridors of power in the West, with the fate of nations, and individuals, hanging in the balance.

About the Author:

Jefferson Flanders has been a sportswriter, columnist, editor, and publishing executive. He is the author of Café Carolina and Other Stories and of Herald Square, a novel of the Cold War described as “Jimmy Breslin meets John le Carré” in the Huffington Post and as “well-written, action packed and engrossing” in the Washington Times.

Review:

"A taut and heart-racing geopolitical thriller that includes a nicely interwoven romance as well." -- Alan Caruba, Bookviews

"A wonderful novel. The North Building will keep you up and keep you interested. A ride through a part of history we don't read enough about." -- Jordan Rich, WBZ Radio, "The Jordan Rich Show"

"A suspenseful read to the very last page, The North Building is highly recommended." -- Willis M. Buhle, Midwest Book Reviews

"The North Building is a top-notch blend of historical fiction and spy drama, worthy of the attention of readers who have enjoyed the work of classic spy novelists like John le Carré and Eric Ambler." -- Bradley A. Scott, ForeWord Reviews
