9781503330924: This Spy in France (Retimer Series) (Volume 6)

George--or Jürgen--Drechsler is new to the ranks of the ASIO field from serving on board Royal Australian Navy frigate HMAS Toowoomba as a young Naval Commanding Officer. Just two years ago having been crimping piracy and drug-trafficking under Operation MANITOU (Australia's part in an international effort, called Combined Maritime Forces, to combat sea routes of terrorism-funding), today Drechsler seems the perfect choice to accompany ASIO's best secret agent, Luthan Fennes, aka the 'Retimer', on a mission to investigate intel reports that a French magnate is planning to disrupt Western fuel security...

Fuel security--along with several other top economic necessities--forms the lifeblood of the everyday functions on home soil of even the least wealthy of countries. It is the fuel, or more aptly the passage of this from oil-exporting countries, that keeps trucks delivering to industry, petrol stations and shops... Without it, society is soon halted. Australia stores but one week's worth of fuel in preparation for any cessation of its major fuel supplies... And the magnate may be about to cause just that. But is he succeeding? And if so, who is helping him?

From the Author:

This Spy in France: I hope you enjoy the book. If you like the male adventure suspense novels by Alistair MacLean and Ian Fleming especially, then I have this book for you. That's the style of writing I favour: plenty of action with enough literary substance. The closest I've ever got to a Kirkus Star for Exceptional Merit in a professional review of one of my books. The sixth book in the Retimer espionage thriller series. Listed in Best Books, Recommended, on the Kirkus Reviews web site, and also in an edition of the Kirkus Reviews magazine. As with all my books, in order of proportion, adventure, action and suspense come first and with high stakes extending across international borders; next gadgets and espionage; followed, usually, by some love-interest sex and light romance. The writing is always quasi-literary. The language level is always sans serious expletives or profanity. Each of my books can be read as a standalone, as the stories, settings and characters in the entire series are only partly continuous in sequence. I am currently writing book ten of the Retimer series.Thank you for your interest in the Retimer series.Michael

About the Author:

Michael Angliss is an Australian writer of fiction international espionage thrillers. His first novel in the Kirkus-acclaimed Retimer spy series is World by Storm, which is based on Vernon Phillips, a fictional secret agent in World War II's Nazi Germany. But Michael Angliss is best known for his contemporary fictional espionage protagonist, Luthan Fennes, the Retimer: the puristic career ASIO operative whose mentor and idol is the old wartime spy Vernon Phillips. Michael's shorter works have been published in the small press, medium-circulation newspapers, and won placings in literary competitions. Most of his novels in the future will be espionage thrillers in the Retimer series. In his early forties, he is a long-serving, that is, case-hardened, systems integration officer of agencies of the Executive branch of the Australian federal government. With qualifications and experience in both the security and investigation industries, he might well have applied to the Director-General of Security's Intelligence flagship, ASIO, if only a former assistant director of MI5, Peter Wright, hadn't declared that spies never sleep; Michael opted for 9 to 5 (the office, not the film) instead. Whether during the standard day at work or after, when he can, he often likes to read the novels of Alistair MacLean and Frederick Forsyth, and, occasionally, Daniel Silva and Alan Furst, et al. As professional reviews of Michael's work come in, they will be posted here in his Author Page. He lives in Melbourne with his wife.
