It's 1959 and Los Angeles private eye Stan Wade is living in a world populated by the rich, famous, and notorious.
He rubs shoulders with Walt Disney, for whom he sometimes does some investigative work; knows gangster Micky Cohen; has an office in the rear of the famed Brown Derby restaurant; has played bridge with Noel Coward; and knows his way around the mean streets.
So when Disney asks him to meet with former British-intelligence-officer-turned-author Ian Fleming, who has lately run into some

I bought this for my husband some time ago as a gift. I didn't plan to read it myself as this author is spitting out one book after another in his series while I can't seem to finish the second book in my own series. My husband read it and enjoyed it. I now needed to find a home for this book and was packing it up to send to my brother and his wife in Boise, Idaho. I made the mistake of reading a little bit of it, then more, and the next day I finished the book - faster than I should've read, bu ...more

A lot of fun and nostalgic

One of my friends and her husband read another of the author's books, Tripl3 Cross. They called it whimsical. I think that's perfect. The author obviously knows a lot about the silver screen (he wrote a book about collecting silver screen memorabilia). He also obviously researched the area of East Berlin where much of the book takes place and is spot on when it comes to the technology and culture of the late 50s. I was very impressed by the detailed descriptions of the

Hollywood, the Brown Derby, Walt Disney, Ian Flemming, Elvis, U2 spying, those gastly Russians, all before the Berlin wall came tumbling down. A fast paced old style gumshoe that also makes one smile - a great yarn without being preachy or trying to proove a point - entertainment at its highest peak with several twists that will take you by surprise. We need more books like this. Book 1 in what I understrand will be a series. Trust the others will be as exciting.

A sheer delight! Spyfall captures the flavor of Hollywood’s golden era. It is a fast-paced thriller. It’s “The Thin Man” laced with the spicy intrigue of James Bond. The tongue-in-cheek irreverence kept a smile on my face. Stan Wade is down-to-earth, extremely likable and believable. I couldn’t put the book down. Spyfall is a diverting caper that everyone must read.

Lots of fun!

This is a great way to get into a whole new idea. 1959, Los Angeles, private eyes, who could ask for anything more, or less? And if you think this was good you should read the rest of the books in the series. Ha, Ha.
