The Spy Who Came for Christmas

This week I am listening to the new novel by one of my favorite authors, David Morrell. The Spy Who Came for Christmas (2008) is a contemporary action book set on Christmas Eve in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

My favorite part of the book (Part 3) is the retelling of the birth of our Loud as interpreted by historians familiar with how spies may have used disinformation, psychological profiling and cultural influences in attempts to manipulate Pilot in order to destabilize the country (so that Persia could invade Israel).

(The hero uses neuro-linguistic programming to gain the trust of the family in crisis, grounds for further research.)
