Spy From Nowhere: Life and Loves of a Naval Intelligence Officer ebook: EPUB met Adobe-DRM

The Spy From Nowhere is based on the experiences of the author, a former naval intelligence officer, consultant to the CIA and the National Reconnaissance Office; the spy satellite agency. Michael Stone's life is a fast-paced, compelling mix of learning, danger, growth, pain and success. Stifled in a small Midwestern town Mike escapes to the big world outside of Nowhere. At UCLA he meets people whom he's never imaged, including a Mexican golf hustler and three very intriguing women from Tinsel Town. In time he develops a taste for fine scotch, premium cigars and exquisite women. The first two are easier to find than is the third. Upon graduation he earns an appointment to the navy's Officer Candidate School, then joins naval intelligence. His first adventure is launching and crash landing on an aircraft carrier. In his first duty station in Hawaii he meets and falls totally in love with a married Chinese woman who has an exotic past. Two weeks later he's transferred to Washington D.C. Love torpedoed. Later, while attending Chinese language school at the Navy Post Graduate School in Monterey, he's befriended by a billionaire from Pebble Beach who partners with him in big money golf matches at Monterey Peninsula Country Club and the ultra-exclusive Cypress Point Golf Club. His covert career takes off when he goes undercover to catch a vengeful sniper inside a navy base, penetrates the China coast to bring out key intelligence and leads a joint intelligence mission across Korea, Japan, Taiwan and The Philippines that prompts a change in U.S. military intelligence systems. There's palpable danger where he's wounded in a combat ambush in Vietnam. While in Hong Kong he's kidnapped and tortured leading to painful rehabilitation that threatens to end his career. At the same time that his career is in jeopardy his marriage to the billionaire's daughter flounders and his infant son develops a heart problem. The people Mike meets teach him about winning, losing, loving and coping with life's injustices. His adventures are a series of unexpected turns. Just when everything seems to be happening as planned he's thrown into a new crisis that wrenches him off in an unanticipated direction. Some changes are wholeheartedly rewarding while others are intensely painful. Throughout his first 40 years one of his basic needs is denied him. Then, suddenly Michael finds that one thing he most needs. This leads to the next book in the series, Grace Under Fire.
