About this title


Ben Ingram, a CIA officer on R&R leave in Paris, who joined the CIA out of pure patriotism at about the start of the Cold War, is now beginning to think of his painting hobby as a career, but so far is too loyal to his cause to switch. He falls hopelessly in love with an American newspaper reporter named Marian Crowley who, unfortunately for Ben, happens to distrust the CIA and even blames the whole Cold War on her own country - attitudes Ben cannot accept. Andrei Chernov, KGB "illegal," sent to Paris on a political-action mission, is well qualified to pose as an American citizen. Later, he is to "reveal" his membership in the CIA to a "target" person. At stake is a small African country's adherence to one or the other side in the Cold War. The three characters find themselves in what seems to be a completely ill-fated tangle of romance and political intrigue.

About the Author:

Boris Ilyin is a first generation White Russian who has grown up in the USA. He was born in 1918 in a besieged town which his father's cavalry unit was defending from the Reds. Nine days after his birth he and his mother joined the thousands of refugees who fled across Siberia. Miraculously reunited 4 years later, Boris and his parents were finally able to immigrate to San Francisco. He spoke Russian at home but attended public schools. Boris graduated in International Relations from the University of California at Berkeley. He served for five years in the Army of the United States, in the US and in the European Theater during World War II. Upon returning to the US, he received a Masters in English and Creative Writing from Stanford University while teaching at the Stegner Creative Writing Center and publishing his first novel, Green Boundary. Recalled to Washington, D.C. in 1950, he participated in the first nineteen years of the Cold War. Upon retirement he settled in the San Francisco Bay Area and turned his attentions to painting and writing.
