About The Coldest Warrior
The new novel by acclaimed espionage author Paul Vidich explores the dark side of intelligence, when a CIA officer delves into a cold case from the 1950s—with fatal consequences.
In 1953, at the end of the Korean War, Dr. Charles Wilson, an Army bio-weapons scientist, died when he “jumped or fell” from the ninth floor of a Washington hotel. As his wife and children grieve, the details of his death remain buried for twenty-two years.
Praise for Paul's Work
“Vidich has quickly carved out a place for himself among the very first rank of espionage writers.”
—Michael Harvey, New York Times bestselling author
Vidich writes with an economy of style that acclaimed espionage novelists might do well to emulate.”
“A cool, knowing, and quietly devastating thriller that vaults Paul Vidich into the ranks of such thinking-man’s spy novelists as Joseph Kanon and Alan Furst.”
—Stephen Schiff, executive producer of ‘The Americans’
