The Spy Who Came For Christmas is another feather in the cap of David Morrell after his award winning book, First Blood. Like his other earlier books, this book also has a plot full of suspense and action. The story revolves around Paul Kagan, a spy who is on the run, carrying a package.
He is being trailed by three men who are members of the Russian mafia that Kagan has betrayed.
He seeks refuge in the home of Meredith, a middle aged woman and her son, Cole and a five month old baby. The four are bound in a series of events, unfolding heartpounding suspense...the core of the book. David Morrell was a professor in English in the University of Iowa, which he later left to become a full time writer. His reviews call him “The mild mannered professor with bloody-minded visions.” He is a three time winner of the prestigious Bram Stoker Award.
