You could walk by him in a supermarket and never notice. If you looked a little closer you’d find him somewhat distinguished. Closer still, you might be very surprised. Who’d ever guess?

Born in the cradle of in the German upper crust. Strutted through the British Foreign Service. Stole Dag Hammarskjöld’s briefcase. Refused the Exodus admittance to Haifa Harbor. They tried to kill him. Many times. Both sides. For good reasons.

An average guy. Average job. Nice townhouse in Alexandria, Virginia.

Funny, scary, fascinating. Alfred is someone you might like to meet. He’s real.


The Alfred excerpt will be available soon.
