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.
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, writing and foreign travel, and he has since traveled extensively and frequently to Europe. He speaks some French, a little less Italian, four words in German, and hopes to expand his fluency in all three languages 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 find their way into his stories of intrigue..."Murder Without Pity" (Paris), "The Killing Ploy" (London, Berlin, Paris, and Lugano) and the recently released "Darkness and Blood" (London and Paris) and "Winston Churchill's Renegade Spy" (London and Zurich). He's also researching for a fifth novel, this one to be set in 1946 Berlin.
Books by Steve Haberman
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.
