Synopsis

"KALEIDOSCOPE does for the CIA what THE SOPRANOS did for the mob... The function and dysfunction of a whole family where the patriarch is ensnared in a dark and dangerous world." MICHAEL APTED, Academy Award nominated film director of COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER & JAMES BOND 007 - THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH

With Spy Game: The Aiken Trilogy, award-winning novelist and screenwriter Michael Frost Beckner thrilled espionage fans with his return to the world of his classic Robert Redford/Brad Pitt movie thriller Spy Game.

Now, prepare yourself for Michael Frost Beckner's boldest experiment in espionage asKaleidoscope expands the Spy Game universe with a multi-part saga of three generations of Kingstons—a CIA family trapped in the web of the Agency's darkest secret.

"Michael Frost Beckner revs up a new series rooted in his original film SPY GAME... Full of twists and turns, these are first-class spy novels with a smart, gritty atmosphere." - CHARLES CUMMING, New York Times & Sunday Times Best-selling Author of KENNEDY 35 and BOX 88

KALEIDOSCOPE

Since the 20th century, energy—its possession, production, distribution—has been the key to every nation's power. The "why-eternal" of all conflict. Today, global demand for energy outstrips resources. As directed by Silas Kingston, KALEIDOSCOPE is the hidden hand within the CIA, older than the Agency itself, overscoring all intelligence operations with deadly efficiency.

PART TWO: BIRTHDAY

A celebration of bonding-deceptions, family lies, generational sin. Of covert death. Suicide and murder. Paige's 18th birthday promises everything it is to become a Kingston adult.

With Michael Kingston rogue in Switzerland hunting the Russian spy Kalaydoskop, Lynn Kingston risks everything to expose KALEIDOSCOPE within the CIA.

"Nobody captures espionage quite like Beckner. Dialogue so sharp it's like dancing on hot coals." - I.S. BERRY, Edgar Award-winning Author of THE PEACOCK AND THE SPARROW, A New Yorker & NPR Best Book of the Year

As MI6 officer Clive Lancer is torn between his affection for Paige and duty to Great Britain—
As Hal Kingston is asked to denounce and betray his brother—
As an evil figure with a stranglehold on Melody Kingston takes form in the shadows of Doris Kingston's past—
Silas Kingston, former Chief of Counterintelligence, returns to the CIA...to service his Russian masters.

"Michael Frost Beckner is the rarest of spy novelists, a beautiful and compelling writer who also has a mastery of tradecraft and a deep understanding of how espionage really works." Joe Weisberg, former CIA Officer and Emmy winning creator of THE AMERICANS

A tale of faith and betrayal, loyalty and violence, the agonies of love without truth, the secrets of KALEIDOSCOPE entangle with those of the Kingston family, pitting the survival of one against the destruction of the other.
