Chinese Espionage and Corporate Greed at the Center of CIA Thriller

Current Events and Intelligence Career Are the Basis for New Novel
WHEATON, Ill. - May 26, 2021 - PRLog -- Economic Espionage. Double Agents. Ukraine. China. With careers in the Central Agency Intelligence Agency (CIA), corporate intelligence, and international politics, Joe Goldberg's latest novel, "The Spy Devils," rips all of these from the headlines to construct a glimpse into the world of espionage.

Trowbridge 'Bridger' Hall was raised to be a spy. Leading a highly trained team of covert agents, he's loyal to his squad and his country. But when his infamous CIA controller and mother assigns his crew an unusual off-books operation, his finely tuned senses scream danger. Hunting a stolen briefcase across the world, his instincts proven lethally correct when one of his men ends up dead. And with potentially ruthless maternal betrayal and treacherous enemies closing in, it's play or be played in a vicious game of death.

Meticulously researched, it pulls from his personal experiences and knowledge of espionage.

"This is fiction, but my mantra was to be as accurate as I could," Goldberg said. "By signed secrecy agreement, I sent this manuscript to the CIA's Publications Review Board for pre-publication review. They redacted a few passages."

Joshua Hood, International Bestselling Author of Robert Ludlum's "Treadstone," agrees. "An expertly crafted tale written with an insider's eye for detail and deft prose that will have fans of the genre begging for more."

Currently, he is an adjunct professor in mass communication. His 2014 thriller "Secret Wars: An Espionage Story" was an Amazon #1 bestseller and multiple award finalist.
