[BREAKING NEWS: Love letters have been discovered between Jackie Kennedy and DAVID ORMSBY-GORE, also known as LORD HARLECH. Who was ORMSBY-GORE? He is a major character in "CAMELOT'S COUSIN." Get this book to find out about this long forgotten part of "CAMELOT"--that is, long forgotten until NOW. ]

When a Dad tries to dig a hole in his Northern Virginia yard to bury the remains of the family pet, he chances upon a mysterious briefcase. Its contents include a journal with cryptic writing. He turns to his friend, and boss, Templeton Davis, a Rhodes scholar, popular national radio talk show host, and best-selling author of spy novels and history books, for help figuring out what he's found. They soon realize that they possess materials concealed more than 60 years earlier before by Soviet intelligence and espionage agent, Kim Philby--and also clues to the last great secret of the Cold War. There was another highly placed spy. Someone never discovered--until now. This traitor had unique access to the White House, and was perfectly positioned to influence President John F. Kennedy as he faced challenge after challenge in the era now remembered as Camelot.

Templeton Davis becomes obsessed with a story like so many found in the spy books he loves. And some of those very espionage spy thrillers come in handy. The trail of mystery and suspense leads to a picturesque town in Vermont, the streets of New York City, the corridors of power in Washington, DC, and most importantly, Oxford, England. He learns that the beautiful city of spires on the Thames was once also a city of spies.

  The Oxford spies may never have reached the level of public notoriety as those from that other British academic stronghold--Cambridge. But clearly the story had never been completely known--or told. And it was a very dangerous mine of intelligence and espionage detail in which to dig, a fact borne out by a couple of suspicious deaths left in the wake of Templeton Davis's travels.   

Davis discovers that during the Cuban Missile Crisis, secrets were being betrayed at the highest levels. And what he learned also connected to a time of great sorrow for mankind--the Kennedy assassination.   At a crucial moment, Templeton Davis develops a bond borne of necessity with a beautiful young woman from Russia, someone with her own secrets. And when what she knows is combined with what the famous broadcaster has learned, the two unlikely heroes find themselves in danger, yet poised to rock the world. Camelot's Cousin: An Espionage Thriller is a page-turner for readers who enjoy suspense thrillers and mysteries.

Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. When a Dad tries to dig a hole in his Northern Virginia yard to bury the remains of the family pet, he chances upon something buried years before-a mysterious briefcase. Its contents include a journal with cryptic writing. The father turns to his friend-and boss-Templeton Davis, a former Rhodes scholar and popular national radio talk show host, for help figuring out what he s found. They soon realize that they are in possession of materials that were hidden more than 60 years earlier by a notorious deep cover agent for the Soviet Union--Kim Philby. And buried with the materials were clues to the identity of the most effective spy in the history of Cold War espionage. Long a mere footnote in history, the story of this man s treachery reaches the pinnacles of power and geopolitics. It s a story that begins just before the Second World War breaks out and reaches the depths of the decades-long stand off that followed. The trail leads to a picturesque town in Vermont, the streets of New York City, the corridors of power in Washington, DC--but most importantly, Oxford, England, where Davis realizes that the beautiful city of spires on the Thames was once also a city of spies. The Oxford spies may never have reached the level of public notoriety as those from that other British stronghold of academia--Cambridge--but clearly the story had never been completely known-or told. And it was a very dangerous mine of detail in which to dig, a fact borne out by a couple of suspicious deaths left in the wake of Templeton Davis s travels. Davis discovers that at the moment when the world came closest to unparalleled disaster, secrets were being betrayed at the highest levels. He would also come to understand that what he had learned connected to a time of great sorrow for mankind--the Kennedy assassination. At a crucial moment, Templeton Davis quickly develops a bond borne of necessity with a beautiful young woman from Russia--someone with her own secrets. And when what she knows is combined with what the famous broadcaster has learned, the two unlikely heroes find themselves in grave danger, yet poised to rock the world.
