9781439228920: The Winds of October

An experienced field intelligence agent Major Kenneth Hall is not, so shouldn't have "picked up" the attractive Greek girl called Anna at the American Club swimming pool outside Athens in the late summer of 1949. Newly assigned in war-ravaged Greece, he's a lonely bachelor. They make a supper date. When he arrives at her apartment near the city center the handsome woman who greets him denies any knowledge of her. Aided by pretty Karen Dunne, his secretary in the shadowy, special intelligence section of the Joint U.S. Military Aid Group, they begin a spare-time search for the girl -- and run headlong into murder, kidnapping, treachery, international intrigue and a threat to the Free World. If the puzzling plot code named Miniver Cheevie's Cat can be foiled and Anna found before the Greek's national holiday on October 28th, perhaps they can save the country from falling to the communists?

About the Author:

Convalescing from pneumonia at age nine, Jim Stephens decided he wanted to write. He began pecking out stories on an old typewriter, one finger at a time. That was 1930. Nine years later, he was editing his high school newspaper and had won a prize in creative writing. He wanted to be a foreign correspondent but photojournalism appeared more lucrative, so he switched and became a part-time news photographer for the Los Angeles Times. Enlisting in the Pictorial Service of the Army's Signal Corps three months after leaving school in 1942 he photographed two beach heads in the Philippines from which emerged his book, Camera Soldiers: The Philippine Odyssey (2007). He retired from the U. S. Army as a commissioned officer after 22 years service during which he was assigned to the U. S. Aid Group to Greece. He later worked 30 years in secondary education and has degrees in anthropology, counseling and education. He lives with his wife of 67 years in Washington State.
