About the Author

normNorman L. Miller’s riveting first novel is based on an all-too-true story that unfolded in the late eighties and early nineties when the KGB attempted to abduct the author while on a seemingly innocent goodwill mission to Latvia. He had to be hidden, taken to Estonia and smuggled across the Baltic Sea to safety. It’s just the right kind of folder for a sports-spy-thriller.

Cold War history was made in Riga, Latvia when the Soviet Minister of Sports made an astonishing statement at a press conference he and Miller held to announce that the Soviet Bobsled Team would visit Lake Placid to take part in the 10th anniversary of the 1980 Olympic Games.  When asked: Who invited the Americans to the Soviet Union, the Minister of Sports responded: I did not invite the Americans. The Latvian Socialist State debated for three months about how to handle the invitation and they made the decision to invite the Americans without first seeking permission from Moscow. It is believed that this was the first public statement made by a Soviet Official that Latvia would no longer be under Moscow’s rule! The Minister of Sports was later executed for crimes against the Soviet government.

Associated Press reporter Chris Carola didn’t know how prophetic he was when he wrote in a 1990 wire story: “The words are straight out of a spy novel: disinformation, Swiss bank accounts, rendezvous with the Russians, cash transactions that can’t be traced… dangerous international activity where one wrong move can spell disaster – or death.” He was referring to the turmoil surrounding the U.S. Bobsled Federation and he hit the target… dead on.
