Veteran undercover FBI agent Jake Kruse is investigating a smuggling ring in southern California when his assignment is cut short by a prominent criminal defense attorney, who wants to hire Jake to kill the daughter of a local crime boss.
What begins as a “contract killing” soon captures the attention of the CIA, the US Secret Service, and high-level Washington officials. Before he knows it, Kruse finds himself plunged into the life-threatening underworld of North Korean espionage, Hezbollah terrorists, and a plot to bring down a commercial airliner over the US.
Fast-paced, thrilling, and filled with authentic detail, Counterfeit Lies is a tale of non-stop action that could only be written by those who have “been there, done that.” Decorated war veteran Oliver North and coauthor Bob Hamer weave their real-life experience into this tautly written tale of international intrigue and suspense. They say it’s fiction—but it’s all too real.
