Book Description

Peter Marker was a World War I spy for the United States. Afterwards, he remained undercover in Europe for nearly two years. He was recalled to the U.S. in June of 1920 for a special set of assignments: First, search for Russian spy cells that were attempting to disrupt the labor movement and create havoc. Secondly, to dismantle a German organization that was a major robbery ring in the New York City area using their spoils to influence the pending 1920 Presidential election.
Marker embarks on a series of adventures while creating a team of specialized U.S. Army Intelligence agents to assist in thwarting both the Russian and German efforts. But, during his quest to capture the Germans, he accidentally discovers tales of Presidential candidate Warren G. Harding’s financial corruption and illicit affairs with several women. His surveillance also reveals corruption within those surrounding Harding as well as their collaboration with German spy cells.
To extinguish these two-prong threats, Peter must involve the La Cosa Nostra and the New York Police Department. The second forthcoming book in The Marker to Pay series will reveal even more regarding Harding’s involvement with women and the German plot to kidnap or kill the President-elect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super book. 28 Feb. 2014
By GA Hiker - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Every chapter keeps you interested. There are no slow parts. It is very well researched and true to detail. It gives you a great snap shot of what was happening in Europe and New York in the spy world during the early 1920's. Its sure to hit the best seller list.

Don't be intimidated by the size, it's a fascinating journey inside the mind of a master spy.
After WW1 Americans were totally unaware of Russian and German cells operating in major
US cities with different , but equally destructive agendas.
The story is believable, the characters are interesting, the illumination of that period in American
History, very well done. Anxious for the next book to be released early next year.
4.0 out of 5 stars I liked it! 3 Jun. 2014

Long read but very interesting with humor.
Like the background & history ties.
Would have been a shorter read without
the repeated sentences.
I'll get the next one too.
5.0 out of 5 stars Look out James Bond! 12 May 2015

Great book. Even though I do not read this type of literature very often I thoroughly enjoyed it. Excellent use
of history as actual history was woven into the story.

Looking forward to the next book by these authors and hoping they make this into a movie. It could be
the next James Bond.
