From former CIA operative John J. LeBeau The Collision Trilogy: CIA operative John Hirter and Kommissar Franz Waldbaer collaborate to defeat terrorism when it threatens the bucolic countryside of Bavaria. In Collision of Evil, vestiges of the Third Reich meet the Islamic terrorists of today head-on in the Alps; in Collision of Lies, a powerful multinational group conspires to provide Iran with nuclear weapons; and in Collision of Centuries, the bubonic plague—now in the hands of terrorists—threatens to plunge the world into the Dark Ages. All three are chilling, terrifying, and stunning international thrillers about deadly intentions with horrific consequences— and the unbridled heroism of two men, an American CIA agent and a German detective. These “Collision” espionage thrillers had to be cleared by both the CIA and the NSA.
"Touches the reader on many levels-—captivating with plausibility and imagination. Collision of Evil is atmospheric and tense and pushes the envelope to the edge and beyond. Le Beau, a former-CIA operative, knows what he's writing about."—Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author of The Bishop's Pawn
Engrossing and suspenseful. A definite thumbs-up for fans of thrillers with historical and political overtones.
"Gripping, intricate, fast-paced. A fascinating tale of how past and present come together to create global consequences."—Sajjan Gohel, Director of International Security, Asia-Pacific Foundation, and commentator on terrorism, CNN.
"Collision of Evil is the real thing, the most gripping and authentic novel about real-world counterterrorism I've ever read."—John R. Schindler, Author, Unholy Terror, Professor of Strategy, U.S. Naval War College
"John J. Le Beau knows his subject. Many authors write about the world of intelligence and espionage but it is rare and refreshing to have a book in this genre by someone with firsthand knowledge."—Tyler Drumheller, former CIA Chief, Europe Division and author of On The Brink
"When cover up stacks upon cover up, the truth can be impossible to find. Collision of Lies is a tale of international mystery, as a single murder begins to spin out of control into an international plot of coverups and crime all throughout the region."—Midwest Book Review
"The plot skips back and forth between various parts of the world—Bavaria, Austria, Virginia, Somalia, Jordan, Azerbaijan to name a few…Collision of Lies has a wham-bam of an ending that kept me gasping for breath."—Bookloons
