CIA Fall Guy: A Spy Thriller

By PhyllisZimblerMiller All Rights Reserved ©

Action / Thriller

Blurb

1997: A woman is called to CIA headquarters to identify someone from 25 years earlier when she lived in Germany. When what she is told doesn’t add up, she fears she may become a fall guy for the CIA and sets off on her own to discover what is really going on. Her quest takes her to Europe and back again to the U.S., and pairs her with a mysterious man who may have been responsible for her husband’s death.

Prologue

Berlin – 1997


The letters shimmered on the plain of the yellowed paper, the moisture in his eyes fogging the squiggles into botches. Letters birthed by an ancient East German typewriter, standard issue.

David Ward coughed. The dust in these old East German Stasi — State Security Police — files penetrated his lungs. He was alone in the basement room eight years after the fall of the Berlin Wall had brought down the Stasi.

He had taken precautions not to be recognized.

A black trim wig enclosed his blond longish hair. One of those ridiculous German hats with the little feathers, as if he were about to climb the Zugspitze, held itself up next to the file. A cheap “East German” polyester suit hung loosely on his muscled body. He had even padded his flat midriff with a cushion of cloth — the typical beer belly. He could be mistaken for a gastarbeiter — foreign worker — or one of those worker drones of the former German Democratic Republic. His clothes concealed his weapons.

He pushed his disguise glasses farther up the bridge of his nose, then rose to return the file. He had people to see.
