Encore for a Spy is the long-awaited sequel to author Harry Currie's best-selling novel Debut for a Spy.
1963: Why was an East German orchestral conductor assassinated in West Germany? Why is MI6 deeply troubled because of this murder? Why has MI6 influenced the authorities in Augsburg to have Canadian vocalist/musician - and their occasional agent - TA Major David Baird take the conductor's place? With murder already involved, why have they simply informed Baird just to keep his eyes and ears open?
The threats begin the very moment his passenger plane lands in West Germany. The KGB wants revenge for Baird's recovery of their stolen British VTOL prototype aircraft a year ago. In Augsburg, bits and pieces gradually come together, though nothing at first makes any sense at all. A personal complication arises with the lovely young widow of the East German conductor. But kidnappers, thugs, bombs, KGB, assassins, snipers, and the imminent threat of World War Three bring it all together, possibly to be set off by a tragic catastrophe in West Berlin. Can Baird survive all this?
Harry Currie is a person whose expertise spans a significant number of different subject areas, and for that reason he has been called a Renaissance Man by many reviewers. A college athlete, while music has been the thread which has run through his whole life, he has spun off from it into education, flying, journalism, heraldry, tartan design, philately, religious studies, novel writing, numismatics, model building, and whatever captured his interest. With degrees from four Canadian and British colleges and universities, he has served in both Canadian and British armies, worked on films, TV, commercials and recordings, starred in a major musical show in the UK, Australia and New Zealand, and many people have said that he seems to know a lot about the spy world. But if he told someone the truth, he would have to kill them
