Only a Pawn in Their Game (Bullet Books Speed Reads #7)

by Kay Kendall

 My fellow Texan Manning Wolfe—friend, author, ace lawyer—has launched an exciting new series called Bullet Books Speed Reads.  
Bullet Books are speed reads for the busy traveler, commuter, and beach-goer. All are new original crime fiction stories that can be read in two to three hours. Gripping cinematic mysteries and thrillers by your favorite authors! Page turners for fans who want to escape into a good read. ALL ABOARD!
Manning asked me to write for her project, but there was a snag. She didn’t want historical mysteries, and that's what I write. Luckily, we compromised and settled on a time that was old enough for me but not too long ago for her.

That means ONLY A PAWN IN THEIR GAME is set in the tense summer of 1989. The Communist hold on Eastern Europe is coming apart at the seams. The metaphorical Iron Curtain is shredding and the REAL Berlin Wall is shaking. Emotions run high in international diplomatic--and SPY--circles.
Into this hot cauldron of intrigue I drop my protagonist, Ms. Sammy Strauss.

Sammy expects a carefree summer during her internship at the US Embassy in Vienna. Competing spy rings clash in desperation and threaten her life as every Viennese waltz accompanies a murder. Is the handsome stranger she meets heading for romance or using her as a pawn?

Can she figure out who’s playing the tune before the dangerous dance ends badly?

Lucky for YOU, the potential reader, you can read my new book ONLY A PAWN IN THEIR GAME to find out the answer. This book and others in this new series are available at all online book sellers in paperback and digital format. (NOTE: Keeping with my long-standing tradition, the name of my Bullet Book is also a Bob Dylan song title.)
Author Kay Kendall is passionate about historical mysteries.  She lives in Texas with her Canadian husband, three house rabbits, and spaniel Wills. Her second book Rainy Day Women won the Silver Falchion for best mystery at Killer Nashville. Visit Kay at her website
