Development Pitch

As Kirkus Reviews said, "(An) ambitious novel involving espionage, counterespionage, romance and one very quirky relationship with Hitler...An engaging, briskly paced spy novel with a few surprises." This is an epic story that spreads over half the globe in a time-span of twelve years. It would makes a fine serialize thriller, moving from The Boston Massacre,, a chase across the country, to an ocean liner, then to Ireland, all the while there is an increasing body count. Once in Europe, the fledgling journalists each take jobs with newspapers in London,France and Berlin and have romantic holiday skiing reunions in Staad, Switzerland. The main action then goes in wartime Berlin. Through her correspondent work with the Chicago Tribune, Abby become friends with Hitler. Some of the best dialogue is between those two. Abby finesses Hitler, and gains military secrets to boot for the Allies. There is an exciting scene at the SS Headquarters and an thrilling escape scene across Germany. Never a dull momemt with a surprise ending.
