He thought it was a routine surveillance job.
They thought he was an ordinary citizen.
Neither could have been more wrong.
Propelled by the discovery of a set of mind-bending diaries penned by Adolf Hitler’s unwilling lover, a deadly pursuit ensues across Europe. Chased is Gage Hartline, a former special operations soldier. Stalking him are the French mob, a rogue DGSE agent, and his former employer, the United States Army. But when the one he loves is ripped from him, Gage turns the tables and becomes the hunter.
The first book in the Gage Hartline series, The Diaries is a modern example of the classic European espionage thriller.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
The Diaries is a superb thriller. It races along at the speed of light. The characters are well developed and fully credible. I found no spelling errors or grammatical bloopers, showing an author who truly cares for his product, not always the case in eBooks. Do read this book. It merits 5 stars. And an international audience.
It’s hard to believe this is Mr. Driskell’s first book. From the opening scene on an airplane, where Gage has to subdue an unruly passenger…the author creates life-like characters, constant tension and unpredictability…Driskell does an excellent job bringing everything together in a satisfying climax.
Driskell’s deliciously volatile mix of crime, history, and old-fashioned spy games is a winner. He advances the spy novel into new, exciting territory, making The Diaries a genre-changer.
The Diaries is a riveting, superbly written debut novel by a promising young author. The author keeps the novel moving at breakneck speed by weaving the Hitler-involved diary entries into the present-day fabric of Gage Hartline’s fast-paced escapade. The Diaries kept me reading until the wee hours of the morning.
The Diaries creates a gamut of emotions from hate to love, written with much sensitivity and almost every page creates a sense of expectation and surprise. Chuck Driskell writes with much detail of both his story and its characters, but the detail kept me surprisingly interested and creates an in depth understanding of the characters.
