Novels set in 1940 Lourenco Marques, Portuguese Mozambique, pre-war Asmara, Italian Eritrea, and WW2 Port Lyautey, Morocco.
It is June 1940 when, 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. Safe at last—or so it seems at first—the Bamberger’s are diverted to Lourenço Marques because of a U-boat threat rather than to Cape Town their original destination. Aleece, a French citizen, finds work at the British consulate while Rudolf, her German husband, but an emigrant to France before the war, drifts helplessly into the hands of the Abwehr spymaster, Ludwig Janke. The Nazi’s tentacles run deep through the tranquil colonial capital and his fearsome espionage operation soon ensnares Rudolf and threatens him into cooperating. With spy-thriller plotting, To Live Another Day vividly re-creates the skullduggery of Axis intelligence operatives from MI6, the OSS, the Abwehr and other services operating from this vast neutral harbor 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 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.
