About the Author
Stephen McCarthy is an Old Fart himself, but was never a spy. At least not that he can tell you about. After 30 years of teaching high school history, he retired to write and take Road Trips with his wife in their trusty old TR3. His first book, "Road Trippin'" chronicles their adventures, and his second, "Transformations" is a collection of Short Stories and other natterings that you might find amusing. This is his first novel, and a sequel is already in the works.

Through a series of flashbacks, we learn that the protagonist, Patrick O'Sullivan, was recruited into the spy business in the early seventies. Now in his sixties, he is an over-the-hill trainer of young talent who gets himself and his trainees caught up in some sort of dastardly terrorist plot. Calling in his old team and even a former KGB opponent, O'Sullivan tried to make sense of the seemingly unrelated bits of information his team develops. The attack, which Sullivan's team fails to thwart completely, is breathtaking in its destruction. I won't tell you the rest so as not to ruin the story, but I thoroughly enjoyed the book. A page-turner.
