       Additional Information  
      Elizabeth Stride--known as the "Black Angel" when she worked for Israeli intelligence--chooses the quiet island of Hilton Head off the Carolina coast as her retirement home. She changes her hairstyle and color, takes golf and tennis lessons, and meets a kind doctor named Jonathan--a man her ex-lover, East German spy Martin Kessler, would have called dull. "In truth, Jonathan was a bit dull ... but she now aspired to dullness. She also, however, aspired to a sex life, and that was her one and only problem with him. The flesh on both sides was willing enough but Jonathan Leidner was a doctor, not only a doctor, but a surgeon. He would know bullet wounds if he saw them." It turns out that hiding her bullet wounds in bed are the least of Elizabeth's problems in John R. Maxim's exciting and inventive thriller. Kessler's attempt to relight old fires just happens to coincide with Islamic terrorists planning to attack a local tennis tournament, so Elizabeth's search for a quiet life lasts for very few pages. John Maxim's equally enjoyable The Shadow Box is available in paperback.
