The Cold War Swap

by Ross Thomas

New York: William Morrow & Company, Inc., 1966. First edition. Author's first novel. Fine in dust jacket with light wear to spine ends and extremities. At the height of the Cold War, Michael Padillo and Mac McCorkle, two Americans, run a bar in West Germany. In addition to this job, Padillo has a second job --- he's a spy for the U.S. government. Overnight, McCorkle's life changes --- he joins his friend in what appears to be a routine assignment, but turns out to be a deadly game of espionage! Terrific book!
