1940, Adolf Hitler's military has conquered most of Europe. Western civilization is on the brink of collapse. Only one nation stands to fight his tyranny. Not isolationist America. Not fascist France or Italy. But Great Britain with its newly installed prime minister, Winston Churchill. But a German spy plots to aid Hitler within Churchill's government, and time is running short.
Steve earned a B. A. Degree from the University of Texas in Austin, majoring in political science and minoring in history. Afterwards he passed his stock broker's exam and worked for a time at a brokerage house before returning to school. Upon getting his legal assistant certification from UCLA, he worked at a law firm in Los Angeles. Successful stock market investments allowed him to retire early and to pursue two dreams: write and travel. He now divides his time between San Diego and European cities where he researches his stories. He speaks some French and Italian, four words in German, and hopes to expand his fluency in all three in his continuing trips abroad.
He enjoys the cosmopolitan bustle, sidewalk cafes, the museums of Berlin, Rome, Vienna, London, Budapest, and Paris. Many of these capitals and other cities find their way into his stories of intrigue..."Murder Without Pity" (Paris), "The Killing Ploy" (London, Berlin, Paris, and Lugano), the recently released "Darkness and Blood" (London and Paris), and "Winston Churchill's Renegade Spy" (London and Zurich). He's also finishing his fifth novel, “Where the Bones Lie,” set in 1946 Berlin.
Books by Steve Haberman
A former American spy, now in hiding, and his former CIA handler are on the run in Europe from governments after they unearth damaging, top-secret information. Set against a backdrop of paranoia, surveillance-infested London, whistle blowing, and high-level backstabbing at MI5, Britain's domestic intelligence agency.
Several years after 9/11. Pablo de Silva, mother, a tennis champion; father, a wealthy, but now bankrupt Swiss hotelier, walks into the American embassy in Switzerland and volunteers to work for the CIA. Accepted, he does admirable work for them. Then tragedy strikes, devastating him. He becomes yesterday's man, mostly written off. Except by his CIA mentor, who gives him a second chance.
Paris...a tourist mecca and glamorous, elegant, cosmopolitan capital of France. But also a dangerous city. Dangerous if you seek to confront the past. Dangerous if you look too closely into the past. And dangerous if you are a state criminal investigator like Monsieur Stanislas Cassel, grandson of a French writer, who sided with the Nazis during their World War II Occupation of Europe.
