Trilogy: Parts 1 & 2 of Particularly Dangerous Work
The Vizconde Rodrigo Mendoza was a low level diplomat in early 1939. He represented the government of Francisco Franco at the Spanish Embassy in Berlin before being transferred to Washington. Rodrigo was also gay. He ran afoul of the Abwehr, Nazi Germany’s intelligence agency, and found himself caught up in the seamy world of espionage and international intrigue on the eve of World War II. Particularly Dangerous Work is his story, told in three parts. The story is full of gritty action, inopportune romance, harrowing escapes, and thrilling adventure. Readers will find themselves immersed in the World War II era, dancing to Tommy Dorsey hits, sailing aboard the SS Bremen, and witnessing the Nazi invasions of France and Russia. As the war’s intensity grows, Rodrigo’s adventures grow evermore dangerous.
Particularly Dangerous Work is historical fiction. All of the main characters, including Rodrigo, are fictitious and are not based on any actual or real historical individuals. Where historical events and certain historical persons (Spanish, American, German, and other government officials) are represented, great care has been taken to present them as accurately as possible. Actual dialogue between fictional characters and historical characters, is, of course, purely fictitious.
