“The Bridge” is the 3rd in this series – more to come.
While living in Moscow, Russia, Windsor, England, and Dublin, Ireland, combined with extensive travel throughout Europe, the U.S., North Africa, Central America, and Mexico, Mr. Miller had occasion to work directly and indirectly with several “interesting” people and organizations.
“The Bridge” released in August 2021 is the latest in the series “Life in the Shadows.” These books share the adventures of a select group of people who became the “tip of the spear” when other means were not available to traditional government agencies.
“The Bridge,” tells where and how it all began, for a number of us willing to say yes to adventure. I have been asked many questions over the years about living and operating in the Soviet Union.
This book shares actual events with a creative narrative connecting the circumstances for those not familiar with the history under Communist rule in the CCCP.
