Amazon's best selling author Nancy Ferguson Martineau will be sharing a table with me at the 2 Nov 2019 Tempe Library Book Festival. Her Post Grid is a good match for my Flee or Die. Come by and see us if you can.

What makes Robert Dukelow's Books any different?
Hundreds of writers have produced spy books over the years. Flemming's James Bond series and le Carré's George Smiley series are sometimes realistic. Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlum books are fun to read but rarely accurate.
For the most part, Robert Dukelow's books read like someone pulled a classified file from some random intelligence office's safe and turned it into lightly modified fiction.
So, no high speed exotic car chases, no rampaging sexual adventures with no recovery time, and no phones built into shoes.
Instead, for the most part, you will read about fairly normal people doing professional intelligence work that at times turns into what can best be described as SNAFU or FUBAR. While at the time, people were in real danger, thirty years later, it's fun to read about these incredible adventures.
