Book One: An Accidental Spy Some secrets change the world Once a privileged heiress, Annabelle Ross is now struggling to hold her home and her life together through the devastation of the War Between the States. But with a forced marriage and a desolate future on the horizon, her hopes are beginning to dwindle. When she discovers an encrypted note on a dying soldier, she seizes the opportunity to use it to deliver a message of her own. Instead, she’s mistaken for a spy and captured. Now her only chance to escape is the handsome soldier in charge of discovering her secrets. After his brother is captured by enemy soldiers, Matthew Daniels vows to rescue him at any cost. When a secret society offers him a chance for retribution, Matthew must decide between his loyalties and his convictions.

While trouble turns more deadly in Washington, Matthew and Annabelle escape to New York, where they have finally succeeded in finding Matthew’s brother. But breaking him out of Elmira prison is about as likely as saving her fractured inheritance. Protecting Annabelle put Matthew on the wrong side of some very dangerous men, but he’d do anything to save the woman he loves—even if it means keeping her from the truth. With time running out and an unexpected miracle testing what remains of his faith, Matthew must confront his fears or risk losing her heart forever.

John Wilkes Booth has disappeared, and everything Matthew holds dear rests on finding the assassin. But to finally bring the conspirators to justice, Matthew must first conquer his own demons. Can he discover the power of redemptive love, or will his future with Annabelle be another casualty of war?

BETSY ROSS: ACCIDENTAL SPY . . . In Philadelphia 1776 as the American Revolutionary war is breaking out, Betsy Ross wonders what really happened the night of the munitions warehouse explosion that killed her beloved husband John Ross. Was the explosion an accident or was the warehouse fire intentionally set? When the authorities refuse to investigate the crime, Betsy vows to solve the mystery herself but is soon drawn into Philadelphia’s dangerous underworld of spies and double agents working for both the British and the Patriots. Ultimately she has no choice but to trust the wrong man, but will she lose her life, or the lives of those she holds dear, in the process? “BETSY ROSS: ACCIDENTAL SPY will leave you breathless with anticipation wondering if Betsy will succeed in her mission to bring down the ruthless double spy intent on thwarting the rebel cause.” -Richard Whitaker, historian. "A truly suspenseful and thrilling tale with an intelligent and feisty heroine whom we are all familiar with from our knowledge of American history. What fun to envision Betsy Ross living as a single woman in Philadelphia in 1776. Ms. Clay has written a clever and imaginative tale providing Betsy the opportunity to use both her talent as a seamstress, and an intuitive woman, to solve a real-life crime that even today remains an American mystery" - Melissa Frederick, historical author. “From the talented pen of Marilyn Clay, fast becoming known as a premier historical suspense author, comes yet another skillful and exciting masterpiece. Characters in Clay’s novels spring to life as they draw you into their world, allowing you to live the stories right along with them. BETSY ROSS: ACCIDENTAL SPY is among the first, if not the first, novel ever written for adults featuring Betsy Ross, a legendary icon in American history as the heroine!” - Janet Stewart, American Historical Preservation Society. "One of the most suspenseful tales of spying and espionage cleverly interwoven into a stunningly realistic depiction of the Revolutionary war, featuring life as it was in 1776 for normal, everyday citizens caught up in a drama they had no choice but to endure." - Pat Beardon, historian. "This is the sort of historical novel you don't want to see end. I sat up long into the night reading this book. I only hope Ms. Clay intends to write a sequel! Thoroughly enjoyed, thoroughly recommended!"- Andrea Walsh. BETSY ROSS: ACCIDENTAL SPY is also available in print from major online retailers.

Espionage in British Fiction and Film Since 1900 traces the history and development of the British spy novel from its emergence in the early twentieth century, through its growth as a popular genre during the Cold War, to its resurgence in the early twenty-first century. Using an innovative structure, the chapters focus on specific categories of fictional spying (such as the accidental spy or the professional) and identify each type with a vital period in the evolution of the spy novel and film. A central section of the book considers how, with the creation of James Bond by Ian Fleming in the 1950s, the professional spy was launched on a new career of global popularity, enhanced by the Bond film franchise. In the realm of fiction, a glance at the fiction bestseller list will reveal the continuing appeal of novelists such as John le Carré, Frederick Forsyth, Charles Cumming, Stella Rimington, Daniel Silva, Alec Berenson, Christopher Reich—to name but a few—and illustrates the continued fascination with the spy novel into the twenty-first century, decades after the end of the Cold War. There is also a burgeoning critical interest in spy fiction, with a number of new studies appearing in recent years. A genre that many believed would falter and disappear after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet empire has shown, if anything, increased signs of vitality. While exploring the origins of the British spy, tracing it through cultural and historical events, Espionage in British Fiction and Film Since 1900 also keeps in focus the essential role of the “changing enemy”—the chief adversary of and threat to Britain and its allies—in the evolution of spy fiction and cinema. The book concludes by analyzing examples of the enduring vitality of the British spy novel and film in the decades since the end of the Cold War.
