Can an idealist from the city stop his estranged friend in the country from exposing a grim and damning secret from their past?

On the surface, Greg Simmons seems an utterly improbable informant. He’s an idealistic, Cascadia independence proponent from the city of Portland. When the FBI calls on Greg to go undercover to investigate a dangerous militia movement out in rural Oregon, he knows exactly why: his long-estranged friend from the country, Donny Wilkie, could have deep ties to the militia.

Greg doesn’t want the FBI’s help. He needs to pursue the threat all on his own, because his true motives run far deeper—making sure that his former friend will never reveal a damning secret from their past. Greg strikes out for the remote small town of Pineburg, a fish out of water. As he grapples with his and Donny’s relationship and why it soured, as the threats to his worldview and to hiding the grim truth darken and mount, he discovers that no one is really who they seem, least of all himself. The dark misdeeds that both he and Donny covered up for so long threaten to reap their toll in the most deadly way.

"Michael Walsh is the new master of the political thriller. With the sophistication of Forsyth, the intrigue of le Carré, and the intensity of Ludlum, Early Warning is an incredible thriller. This book should be stamped Satisfaction Guaranteed! " -- Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Foreign Influence

Raves for Hostile Intent

"Early Warning is a great, great, great political thriller. You'll love Walsh's books. . .Vince Flynn caliber."–Rush Limbaugh

"Compelling, fast, dangerous"–Robert Ferrigno

"The Vince Flynn for the 21st century."–John Fasano, Darkness Falls

"Hostile Intent kept me up most of the night. Hold on, is all I can tell you."–Jay Nordlinger, National Review

"Walsh knows what he's up to."–USA Today

"Hold on to your heartbeat. . .explodes from start to finish."–Andrew C. McCarthy, former Assistant United States Attorney and author of Willful Blindness

"Hostile Intent is audacious in the extreme, and a lot of fun."–FrontPagemag.com

"Michael Walsh writes hot blazing prose, compelling, fast, honest and dangerous. More than just a master of style, he writes about the most important subject in the world: terrorism, what it is and what it takes to defeat it. You need to read this book."–Robert Ferrigno, author of Prayers for the Assassin

"Sic pages into Hostile Intent and I began to feel uneast. By page nine I'd been punched in the gut. And it just doesn't stop."–Bill Whittle, author of Silent America

Michael Walsh is an amazing gentleman and a wordsmith in several disciplines who has achieved critical and commercial acclaim for everything from music criticism to successful screenplays to novels. The latter, which Walsh writes all too infrequently, are memorable and unusual, each a bit different from the other. His latest novel, Hostile Intent, is in a class all by itself: a full-throttle, energy-packed thriller that slices across espionage and politics with enough explosions, fisticuffs and firepower to fill five books with a bit left over for the next.
A German actor turned spy tries to escape a doomed secret mission behind enemy American lines at the height of WWII’s Battle of the Bulge.

 

By the author of the new novel The Preserve. 


In the final winter of the war a failed German actor, Max Kaspar, is forced to join an absurdly desperate secret mission in which he must impersonate an enemy American officer. So Max cooks up his own fanatical plan—he'll use his false identity to escape tyranny and war and flee to the America he'd once abandoned.


The Losing Role is based on an actual false flag operation during 1944’s Battle of the Bulge that's been made infamous in legend but in reality was a doomed farce. In all the tragic details and with some dark humor, this is the story of an aspiring talent who got in over his head and tried to break free.


Part espionage thriller, part expatriate noir and the first book in the Kaspar Brothers series, The Losing Role is the prequel to Liberated: A Novel of Germany, 1945—Max is the estranged older brother of German-American US Army captain Harry Kaspar in Liberated. The Kaspar brothers reunite in the third book, Lost Kin. 


This latest edition includes an excerpt of Liberated (Kaspar Brothers #2).

“A touching yet painful story ... [Max] is human in the face of hardship and chooses to continue living, but on his own terms.” —Awesome Indies 


“A terrific book that deserves a wide audience. It is exciting and funny and keeps you thinking long after the action is over.” —Rose City Reader 


“Excellent dialogue, well-crafted characters, and enough dramatic tension to saw a Panzer in half.” —The New Podler Review of Books 


Awesome Indies Approved
