Novels set in 1940 Lourenco Marques, Portuguese Mozambique, pre-war Asmara, Italian Eritrea, and WW2 Port Lyautey, Morocco.
In June of 1940, ahead of the Germans marching into Paris, Rudolf and Aleece Bamberger, a young German-French Jewish couple flee to Africa to wait out the war where they become embroiled in intrigue and espionage. With spy-thriller plotting, To Live Another Day vividly re-creates their attempt to unsuccessfully distance themselves from the pervasive skullduggery of Axis intelligence operatives in the vast Portuguese neutral harbor of Lourenco Marques, a strategic but colonial backwater situated at the forefront of Indian Ocean shipping lanes.

An OSS officer is dispatched on a secret mission to French Morocco to dismantle a Nazi network reporting on the U.S. Navy’s Africa Blimp Squadron. Rich with atmosphere and period detail, the intrigue is played out against the northwest coastal town of Port Lyautey on the Sebou River where, in the dusty streets and alleys and in the byzantine Medina of this small colonial seaside town, the French influence is evident, but the compelling force is Arabic and overwhelming.
