David Foster, author and host of our sister-site Permission To Kill, has recently released his new spy novel, The Danakil Deception. Published by Pro Se Productions, the book is the first full-length adventure featuring his protagonist, Jarvis Love. Love was introduced in the 2012 novella, The Librio Defection, which Spy Vibers can read for free TODAY through a promotion on Amazon here. Design-wise, I really like the new brand image for his series! The silhouette of the secret agent over a yellow circle connects his work with the great tradition of fast-paced espionage adventures. Writing under the moniker James Hopwood, Foster has penned a number of novels in the Fight Card series and has been a contributor to a number of New Pulp anthologies. Behind the scenes here at Spy Vibe, he's also provided me with valuable editorial notes as I wrap up my first Miki Zero novel (and it's close, folks!). You can check out Foster's Amazon author page here. More about his Jarvis Love books below. Enjoy!
The Librio Defection: "A fast paced novella filled with international intrigue and espionage. 1966: The world's greatest violinist, Soviet, Alexander Stanislas wants to defect to the West after the violent death of his half-brother. But he has one condition; he wants his Italian mistress, Belladonna Librio to come over with him. Jarvis Love works for the Global Intelligence Network. He is young, inexperienced and about to be thrust in the explosive world of Cold War espionage for the first time. His assignment seems simple enough; locate Belladonna Librio and escort her back to London. Major Sacha Vorinski, of the Fifth Chief Directorate has other plans. Filled with brutal fights and wild chases, The LIBRIO Defection is a white knuckle action adventure which harks back to the great spy novels of the '60s and '70s, but infused with the high-octane punch of a modern thriller. In this edition, also included is a sneak peek at Jarvis Love's first full length adventure, The Danakil Deception."
The Danikil Deception: "When archaeologists at the Danakil Depression in Ethiopia – the hottest place on Earth – discover a ruby measuring six feet in diameter, the world's scientific community is thrown into a spin. But it's not only scientists who are interested in the discovery. In the wrong hands, the ruby could be used to power a terrifying weapon – a weapon that could change the fate of the world. Meet Jarvis Love, the young operative assigned to investigate the find. Thrown into a harsh unforgiving environment, Love finds himself battling a neo-Nazi with a diabolical plot to assassinate the top world leaders in one massive attack... ...the clock is ticking, and only Love can stop the madman. Filled with hair-raising action and wild chases, The Danakil Deception is an edge-of-your-seat adventure that harks back to the great spy novels of the sixties, but infused with the high-octane punch of a modern thriller. The HOTTEST place on Earth just got HOTTER! The Danakil Deception by James Hopwood. From Pro Se Productions."
