Ageless Spy is a literary novel that flows smoothly through the
protagonist's life. The narrative is not meant to confound the
reader with overtly clever twists, violence or sex. Ageless Spy
simply tells a story about lives that intertwine amid the Second
World War and bond closer together after the war's conclusion. The
quiet narrative introduces Carl Coles and creates a wonderful
tapestry of suspense and intrigue as the story takes the reader on
unsuspecting paths. The narrative unfolds slowly as an aged Carl
Coles and his wife Maureen begin an uncharacteristic reminiscence
of a time long ago. The cozy warmth of their Halifax kitchen soon
gives way to a young British merchant seaman who happens upon a
tiny Halifax cafe decades before in 1939. Carl Coles puts aside his
personal life and sacrifices himself for his country for years.
Follow his career and find out why he became the premier agent
assassin of the British Secret Service. Find out how this typically
gentle man could separate career from his personal life and still
maintain his humanity. Quiet and introverted on one hand while on
the other hand an efficient killing machine. An oxymoron to be
sure, but they both adequately describe Carl Coles to whom we are
introduced as a nineteen-year-old merchant seaman in 1939. As hard
as Carl tries to escape the spy business and in spite of numerous
efforts to consummate his distant love for the Canadian woman, both
actions fail miserably. Throughout all of his efforts, Carl Coles
hones his skills as an elite and silent killer. In the words of a
beta-reader, This novel is continuously exciting. Carl Coles puts
aside his personal life and sacrifices himself for his country for
years. He struggles with choices such as getting married to the
women he loves. Is it selfish for him to involve her? Despite all
the tragedy I don't think this noble man would have done anything
differently. Maureen Larson is waiting for her man. His time to
save her grows shorter.
