Lady Justice has a long memory as FBI analyst Jake Bernstein investigates a suspected Nazi spy wanted for war crimes.
A BODYGUARD OF LIES is a riveting blend of romantic thriller, mystery and WWII espionage. A Jewish-American FBI analyst, Jake Bernstein, is recruited by MI-5 to go undercover and investigate a naturalized American grandmother. The elderly woman is suspected by MI-5 of being a notorious Nazi spy wanted for war crimes. Jake Bernstein runs into a series of complications: This spy knows a secret that could endanger the British royal family; his attraction to the old woman’s beautiful granddaughter; an Irish, neo-Nazi group tries to kill him; and all the while, a clever, cagey old woman stands in the way of justice.
Our Globus tour group of Switzerland, led by our fearless leader, Mike Geisberg of Wiesbaden, Germany, had an often adventurous, always enjoyable, time touring the Swiss Alps from May 30-June 7th. From the clean, affluent streets of Zurich to the lovely panoramic vistas of Interlaken and Grindelwald, from the high reaches of Murren where we could see the Eiger, the Monk and the Jungfrau, to the 'top of Europe', from Zermatt's lush valleys to the cloud-shrouded Matterhorn, we were awestruck by all the dramatic beauty. Our little, impromptu trainride down to Stresa across the border into Italy was fun-filled (although a little mystifying since we were all ticketless) and we enjoyed the sun-splashed terraces of Isla Bella on Lago Maggiore.
A day spent on the Glacier Express, for me, was one of the highlights of the tour but I'd have to admit the terrace viewing of the Alps from the Jungfraujoch was the emotional pinnacle. I want to go back! Our tour group of Americans, Canadians and Australians was a spirited, adventurous bunch of wonderful people, whom I hope to see again some day.
