Gypsy Spy – The Cold War Files
Carlos de Leon has led an ideal life under his father’s care in Spain. Every day with his father, Shane Leoppard, is like an adventure. That is, until, Shane succumbs to an assassin’s bullet and dies in his son’s arms. Twelve-year-old Carlos is left all alone in the world, with only his father’s teachings to keep him safe.
But that might be all he needs. Shane taught him how to be deliberative, stealthy, and, most importantly, lethal. Carlos thinks he needs all these skills to survive the road ahead. His path will be a dark one as he swears vengeance on those responsible for his father’s death. Retribution will take him from the Roma community of France to the American Ozarks, and back, in this daring thriller. Will Carlos find revenge or redemption in his quest to avenge his father?
Cold War plots combine with supernatural encounters in this heart-pounding adventure. Author and pastor Nikolas Larum provides a unique look at espionage from a spiritual perspective. The gypsy spy will have to confront his demons to save the world from war and not lose his soul.
