A spy with heart!

Fast paced and fun. Lots of twists and turns. A hero I rooted for, and an engaging assortment of spy craft detail.

“The secret is to have a quiet heart, and to celebrate each moment of life so as to have no fear of death.”
Charles Veley, The Last Moriarty

“But on the stage I feel—I don’t quite know how to say it. When I sing, it is as natural as breathing, and at that moment I have no care at all what others may think. And I forget that I have no family, because I’m wrapped up in my work. I bet you know what that feels like, to be all wrapped up in your work.” “I do indeed,” said Holmes. “It is the only reward one can be sure of.”
Charles Veley, The Last Moriarty

“On the wide quay, with the massive brick warehouses rising up darkly on his right and the two imposing steamships towering above him on his left, Johnny appeared quite solitary and vulnerable. “Holmes, did young Mr. Rockefeller seem upset to you?” “Youth can be a difficult advantage to bear,” said Holmes.”
Charles Veley, The Last Moriarty
