BOOK TRAILER: The Zodiac Deception by Gary Kriss

The con man known as David Walker didn’t exactly volunteer, but OSS chief Wild Bill Donovan convinced him that serving his country and the cause of freedom by posing as German astrologer Peter Kepler was a better use of his time than going to prison for impersonating a Princeton University professor. His mission: use his skills in illusion, sleight of hand and deception to gain Heinrich Himmler’s trust and persuade him to assassinate Adolph Hitler.

 

In action that takes him from Berlin to Paris to Cairo; from Hitler’s Eagle Nest to Himmler’s occult Wewelsburg Castle, Gary Kriss’s The Zodiac Deception is a memorable debut, an unforgettable thrill ride through the dark heart of World War II Germany.

About the Author:

 

GARY KRISS has been stringing together words for longer than he cares to remember, including for THE NEW YORK TIMES where he wrote critically acclaimed feature articles.

Born in the great borough of Brooklyn, Gary was raised in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, near Dolly Parton’s home town, although he has never shown any vocal ability. He did, however, fall under the spell of the South’s rich literary heritage and to this day remains bewitched by it.

Gary studied philosophy and sociology as an undergraduate and did his graduate work in sociology and psychology at The New School for Social Research. A former journalism, communication arts and marketing professor, he was named a Research Associate at Williams College in recognition of his writing.

Like the protagonist of THE ZODIAC DECEPTION, Gary’s an accomplished mentalist, magician and ventriloquist. He’s a member of the Society of American Magicians, founded by Houdini, and of the International Brotherhood of Magicians. He’s also an active member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America and, because he’s a hopeless romantic, the Romance Writers of America.

Currently he’s working on his next novel, THE HOUDINI KILLER, a prequel to THE ZODIAC DECEPTION. True to form, he’s writing it either in a coffee house or a bookstore rather than in his Westchester County, NY home, which has been invaded by research material, an unruly horde the likes of which have not seen since the glory days of the Vikings and the Goths.

Beyond that, his main concern is making his lovely wife, Pat, his publisher, his editor, his agents, his dog and his cat proud of him. He still holds out hope that he can win over the dog.
