The Innocent Hero
About the Book
Grit, bravery and an engineer's analytical mind keep James Lewis alive while he innocently solves a major intelligence problem for the U.S. Government.
Jim is your next door neighbor, a happily married family man who's ego doesn't let him say no when he is asked by his friend, Senator Gallby, to perform a task that is beyond his training and experience. He rescues an American Congressman from kidnappers in England and flies him across the English Channel in a single engine Cessna. Avoiding several attempts on their lives, he gets the Congressman home while unintentionally eliminating the rogue CIA agents responsible for the kidnapping.
