Digital-first publisher Le French Book will launch its thriller collection with bestselling The Bleiberg Project by French author David Khara, adapted into English by blockbuster movie translator Simon John. This prize-winning spy novel, the first in a series, was an instant success in France. Think a dash of Robin Cook, a splash of John Grisham, and pinch of Clive Cussler with a very distinctive voice all it's own.
1942, Poland. The head of the SS meets secretly with a scientist in charge of a major Third Reich project. Present day. After another late night with yet another woman whose name he doesnt remember, self-pitying golden boy Jay Novacek learns that his long-lost father has died, precipitating events that lead him to board a plane to Zurich. Hes got a Nazi medallion in his pocket, a hot CIA bodyguard next to him, and a clearly dangerous Mossad agent on his tail. What was his father investigating? Why was his mother assassinated? Why are unknown sides fighting over him with automatic weapons? Far from his posh apartment, he races to save the world from a horrific conspiracy straight out of the darkest hours of history. Can it be stopped?
"This is a really fun book, full of action, humor and likable characters, says Anne Trager, who founded Le French Book. This bestselling French author has real talent, and its no surprise this book is being made into a movie.
