Jack of Spies


It is 1913, and those who follow the news closely can seethe world is teetering on the brink of war. Jack McColl, a Scottish carsalesman with an uncanny ear for languages, has always hoped to make a job forhimself as a spy. As his sales calls take him from city to great city—Hong Kongto Shanghai to San Francisco to New York—he moonlights collecting intelligencefor His Majesty’s Navy, but British espionage is in its infancy and Jack hasnothing but a shoestring budget and the very tenuous protection of a boss infaraway London. He knows, though, that a geopolitical catastrophe is brewing,and now is both the moment to prove himself and the moment his country needshim most.

Unfortunately, this is also the moment he begins to realizewhat his aspiration might cost him. He understands his life is at stake whenactivities in China suddenly escalate from innocent data-gathering and casualstrolls along German military concessions to arrest warrants and knife attacks.Meanwhile, a sharp, vivacious American suffragette journalist has wiled her waydeep into his affections, and it is not long before he realizes that her Irish Americanfamily might be embroiled in the Irish Republican movement Jack’s bosses arefighting against. How can he choose between his country and the woman he loves?And would he even be able to make such a choice without losing both?
