Description

Deep Cover delivers a twisty, action-packed story of deep-cover Russian spies that plays on long-time fears and rumors. As the tension amps up, you won’t know who to trust.” –Lena Gibson, award-winning author of The Edge of Life

Are there deep cover Russian Cold War spies in the U.S.? If the answer to that question is, “Yes,” what the hell are they up to?!?

The Cold War, a period of history during which spycraft rules the world by substituting subterfuge and lies for actual war and mass death. The Soviet Union and the United States of America, the two major players, spend untold sums of money and put their best minds to work at attempting to gain the “upper hand,” whatever that means. Two distinct ideologies. One takes the long view, while the other prefers instant gratification. They find common ground only in their willingness to utilize experimental methods and the lengths to which they are willing to go to “win,” including using their own citizens in unimaginable ways.

During the Cold War, the Soviets plan to infiltrate the U.S. by placing deep cover agents into the country as everyday citizens. Was the plan successful? If so, with détente and the collapse of the Soviet Union, where are they today?

Lisa Jones and Jennifer Turner are two brilliant scientists working at United Genetics Research Lab, a state-of-the-art facility located outside of Washington, D.C., doing state-of-the-art genetics research. Lisa's boyfriend, Sgt. Stephan Beck, works at the United States Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) as an interpreter of intercepted Russian language messages. One such message, intercepted by Homeland Security, piques his interest due to what he, and no one else, perceives to be a hidden message. Unable to resist the challenge, he breaks protocol in an effort to unravel the mystery, unprepared for what he actually learns: a possible connection to the people he loves and an attempt to manipulate the next presidential election, only months away, altering the fate of the U.S., and the world.

Deep Cover, the second published novel by acclaimed author Jeffrey Jay Levin, author of Watching, Volume 1: The Garden Museum Heist, asks the question: Are the two countries, and the behind-the-scenes players, really all that different? Who can one really trust?

If The Manchurian Candidate and The Americans had a baby, it would have been the adult action thriller Deep Cover.

A Note From the Publisher

Jeffrey Jay Levin grew up in Chicago, Illinois and, after pestering his wife for 25 years or so, successfully convinced her to move to Northern Arizona, where they currently reside. Jay, as he's known to his friends, spends some time working as a commercial real estate lawyer, and writes whenever he can. He's still working on his customized 1976 Corvette but is hopeful to have it completed by the time his next book is published. In the meantime, he's keeping busy and, mostly, out of trouble.
