9781480089211: Luck is not a Strategy: Political Fiction Based on Historical Fact (Volume 1)

Luck Is Not A Strategy traces a young man’s journey from the beaches of Southern California to the sands of Cairo, Egypt. It doesn’t end there. Finessed into the CIA, the hero’s covert globe trotting adventures and intrigue seem at once surreal, yet oddly familiar ... even plausible. The reader is left in the disconcerting position to ponder what portions of the book are based on recently-declassified intelligence or the author’s audacious imagination.
