Dead Deutsch, a Jud Carson mystery by John M. Spafford

When hard-boiled detective novelist Jerome Carstead finds himself in the occupied city of West Berlin, he must face not only an ingenious murderer determined to escape justice at any cost, but the East German secret police and the American intelligence community as well. From San Francisco to Paris, to West Berlin and beyond, Dead Deutsch takes readers on a journey into the shadow world of Cold Warriors and femmes fatales.
Writer John M. Spafford brings hard-hitting P.I. Jud Carson, millionaire widow Claire Hornsby-Colfield, Stan the Chili Man and more back to the world stage in the much-anticipated sequel to his first Jud Carson mystery, Dead Duck.
Just as in Dead Duck, readers of Dead Deutsch will enjoy the Jud Carson tale inter-woven with Jerome's. From the grit and grime of San Francisco and the seedy underworld of Jud Carson to the glamour of Paris, the famous real-world pub of West Berlin's Finnegan"s (be sure to say 'Hello' to Colm and Daisy when you visit) and the palace of Sanssouci where Jerome must match wits with international spies and deadly assassins, Dead Deutsch will keep readers in suspense at a break-neck pace in this sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, and always exhilarating tale that will leave them looking forward to the next Jud Carson tale.
Air Force veteran John M. Spafford is more than familiar with the milieu that he presents in his latest novel. Mr. Spafford's military career included world-wide missions while assigned to intelligence activities. Coupled with a storied career as a photo-journalist, this award-winning writer has developed an understanding of, and experience with, the very types of characters that he brings to life in his writing.
