Riassunto: Her Technicolor War?a full length action novel approximately 429 pages.

Karen did not see the face of the man who shot her and killed her fiancé.

Sinossi: Her Technicolor War?a full length action novel approximately 365 pages.

Karen did not see the face of the man who shot her. He was a dark figure, looming over her, one side of his body illuminated by the orange glow of the burning hospital. She saw him raise one arm and bright explosions roared from his pistol. Then came the searing pain as the bullets tore through her body.

Altmann did not stop pulling the trigger until he heard the empty Sauer H click twice. Suddenly feeling exhausted, on stiff legs, he stumbled down the hill towards the heat and light. A short distance from the inferno he found his friend, wounded and unconscious. He turned and looked despairingly into the hellish flames. In an instant, resolve replaced anguish. Racing behind the burning building, in a few moments he returned with a glass syringe filled with a dark, bloody liquid. Altmann quietly approached his best friend, knelt, unbuttoned the wounded man?s shirt, and with one smooth motion injected the deadly Ebola virus.

The Office of Strategic Services, the wartime forerunner of the CIA, sent Karen Sommerhauser to Africa to stop Doctor Altmann. She failed. As she lay recovering from her wounds, she swore to never give up the hunt for the Nazi doctor. On a duty assignment in Los Angeles, she finds a surprising ally in a newlywed teenager and aspiring actress named Norma Jeane Dougherty. Karen and Norma Jeane?better known as Marilyn Monroe, become fast friends. Together, they won?t be stopped.

The action races across four continents and ends with the sound of gunfire echoing through the Hollywood Hills. Her Technicolor War is an espionage thriller set in the defining days of the past century. It is a fast paced, action/adventure saga, but it is also a tale of friendship, love, and loss.
