about

This, the first novel in the Cold War Warrior series, will introduce you to the protagonists of these novels, Joshua and Rebecca.
Joshua, known as Josh to his friends, and Roger, Cowboy, Dude, and the kid, along with several other tags to those with whom he has gone to school with or worked with. All of this is due to his being considered a little “different” by those around him and the strange summer jobs he performs. He is going to add a couple of new names to the long list of names he is expected to respond to as he goes through this coming period in his life. He works hard at not letting others know just how “different” he is.
As he and Rebecca come from completely different backgrounds social strata no one would expect them to become an item. Yet this too is in their futures, as you will see. You see she too is a little “different” from those around her in school and just as bright as he is.

As free as we are here in this country of ours, we are still required by social convention to blend in. To be “different,” is to threaten the “natural” order of things. Being different means many things to different people. Different can be as simple as having had an accident and having lost a finger. It can be as complicated as having been born different from the other children around you.

In the case of Josh and Rebecca, they were born with two major handicaps as far as the people around them were concerned. The first is, they are both more intelligent than those around them and tended to let that fact be known early in their lives. The second thing, they quickly learned not to let others know about is they are both telepaths. This last item will have repercussions that neither is willing to recognize at first. It also leads to problems that neither has planed for in their lives.

As mentioned earlier there are people that want to use their abilities. The first one of which is William Bellingham. He is the CIA boss of the operation that Josh and his mentor and boss Carlos are working for. Their job is to train Mr. Bellingham’s Cuban rebels for Castro in how to blow things up and in how to be snipers, at their camp in the Yucatan, in Mexico. Mr. Bellingham has already taken an interest in Josh. Particularly after Josh goes on a successful hunt for wild boars and Jaguars, in the jungle, at night, and with only a short spear for a weapon.

Then Josh sneaks away to Cuba with the last of his Cuban trainees to blow up a couple of bridges, the same night Rebecca shows up in camp. When Bill finds out through his wife’s cousin, Rebecca, that she and Josh are communicating telepathically. He knows he wants them both working for him at any cost. However, as they are both to young to work for him now, he wants to make sure they both go back to collage, and don’t become a thing, just yet. He manages to set in motion a plan to separate them. His problem is they have already become a thing. That is how they are able to communicate the way they do.
