A Conversation with Espionage Novelist M. A. Richards

Omnimystery News: Author Interview with M. A. Richards

We are delighted to welcome author M. A. Richards to Omnimystery News today.

M. A. introduces Nathan Monsarrat, a retired Central Intelligence Agency deep cover operative with an extensive knowledge of black gold and expertise in weapons, women, and Benjamins, in Choice of Enemies (Sunbury Press; January 2016 hardcover, trade paperback and ebook formats) and we recently had the opportunity to spend some time with him talking about his new series.

Omnimystery News: Tell us a little more about Nathan Monsarrat.

M. A. Richards: In Choice of Enemies, the first novel in the "Enemies" series published by Sunbury Press, Nathan Monsarrat is a deep cover operative for the CIA, working the oil portfolio in Nigeria. His boss, Felix Sanhedrin, betrays him in order to scam $250,000 from the Agency. The interactions between the two characters, a classic protagonist/antagonist clash, form the crucible of all the novels in the series. Nathan is a complex character, physically gifted and intellectually sharp, capable of performing acts of warm compassion as well as cold brutality. Loyalty is his Achilles heel, which Felix exploits for his own advantages. While Nathan suffers his conscience, a serious weakness for a deep cover operative, Felix is reptilian in his calculations. Hubris is his sole weakness, which Nathan ultimately manipulates in order to stymie Felix and prevent his own oil soaked death in Africa.

OMN: How do you expect these characters to develop over the course of a series?

MAR: Both Nathan and Felix develop over time, not only within each novel of the series, but also from book to book … of course, in different directions. The second novel of the "Enemies" series — A Thousand Enemies, to be published later this year, also by Sunbury Press — takes place two years after the conclusion of Choice of Enemies. Nathan is dragged back onto the grey playing fields of the Agency when he is blackmailed and set up as the patsy in another Felix Sanhedrin plot to gain power and wealth for himself. While the stakes in A Thousand Enemies are much larger than in Choice of Enemies — affecting the national security of the U.S., vis-a-vis an Iranian plot to destroy U.S. Embassies in Europe and holy sites in Israel — the personal conflicts between Nathan and Felix also intensify. The literary precedents for their relationship are Smiley versus Karla … and Holmes versus Moriarty.

OMN: Into which genre would you place this series?

MAR: I write in the spy novel genre, which I refer to as (pardon the pun) "novels of intelligence." Espionage is the milieu of both Choice of Enemies and A Thousand Enemies, but like the works of Robert Stone, Graham Greene, Martin Cruz Smith, and John le Carré, my novels are populated with conflicted characters whose actions are driven by human emotions which readers will understand immediately and viscerally. I do not write novels with cardboard characters in familiar situations. I do not choose action over character development. Nathan is a complex, multi-dimensional character plagued by human foibles and doubts. Felix, while never bothered by issues of morality, is also a complex character — as is any fully egocentric individual willing to sacrifice others for self-gain. Right versus wrong, good versus evil … these classic struggles form the core of the "Enemies" series.

OMN: How much of your own personal or professional experience have you included in your books?

MAR: I spent almost three decades in the service of my country, most of which as a Cultural Attaché with the Department of State. I worked in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, so my library of experiences is fully stocked, and I draw upon them to bring authenticity to my writing. The sense of locale is very strong in the "Enemies" series, whether in Nigeria's oil soaked Delta, the dangerous pereuloks of Moscow, the souks of Jerusalem and al-Basra, or the bucolic Berkshires of western Massachusetts. The usual characters-are-purely-coincidental-disclaimer is boldly stated in Choice of Enemies and A Thousand Enemies, but my characters are amalgams of people I observed during my career as a diplomat — with a large dose of my own imagination. Likewise, the situations and background for my novels are based in my experiences with today's headlines … Islamic fundamentalism, Middle Eastern terrorism, Iranian nuclear designs, the need to guarantee reliable supplies of oil … but whether "special" insights are included, I can neither confirm nor deny!

OMN: How much liberty did you take with the settings of the books?

MAR: No liberties at all! In fact, I conduct hours of research to be sure, for example, that the street names are correct for the time of the story. Also, I don't want to send Nathan in a car the wrong way mistakenly down a one-way street! As closely as I can, I make sure that the time it takes to walk from the old meat-packing district in Manhattan to Grand Central Terminal on a Monday morning in December is accurate. Painting a factual picture is extremely important — I don't want a reader to put down the book because I misnamed the street running along the west side of the U.S. Embassy compound in Moscow. My attention to detail carries over into dialogue, too. In A Thousand Enemies, for example, the Russian assassin, Dragomirov, spits out a scathing term used by zeks in Moscow's infamous Matrosskaya Tishina prison. The accuracy of the details in the "Enemies" novels adds to the enjoyment of reading — when the story takes place in Saint Petersburg in December, readers need to wear a fur sharpka on their heads to stay warm!

OMN: What kinds of books did you read when you were young?

MAR: I was the kid who smuggled a flashlight under the bedcovers to read the Hardy Boys books, when I was supposed to be sleeping. Until reality smacked me in the head in the form of needing a job to pay the rent, I continued to read voraciously: spy novels from Robert Ludlum and John le Carré and Eric Ambler, literature from Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald and Saul Bellow, history from Barbara Tuchman and W. Bruce Lincoln and Martin Gilbert, poetry from William Butler Yates and James Tate and William Meredith, detective novels by Dashiell Hammett and Robert B. Parker and Raymond Chandler … and the list goes on and on. Now that I am a full-time novelist, I still enjoy reading widely, but the number of books I read is more limited. My eyes can only focus on so many pages in a day — my own and others — perhaps I should have read fewer books under the bedcovers as a kid?

OMN: What's next for you?

MAR: I'm looking forward to the launch of A Thousand Enemies later this year. It's a longer novel than Choice of Enemies, and much richer for its additional pages. There are more locations (Moscow, Jerusalem, Teheran, Baghdad, Amman, Beirut, Damascus, New York, Washington) and many more characters, both good guys and bad guys, although Nathan Monsarrat and Felix Sanhedrin stand front and center of both novels.

SPOILER ALERT! In Nathan's efforts to thwart the subterfuges of Felix, he stumbles into the midst of a plot to destroy a New York City landmark with a radiological device — a very powerful and very dirty bomb.

The third novel in the "Enemies" series, Enemies in the Gate, continues that deadly game of hunter versus hunted between Nathan and Felix. Look for it in 2017!

Choice of Enemies by M. A. Richards

Choice of Enemies by M. A. Richards

A Nathan Monsarrat Thriller

Publisher: Sunbury Press

Amazon.com Print/Kindle Format(s)BN.com Print/Nook Format(s)

Light sweet crude is the mother's milk of the Niger Delta. As the price for each barrel of oil rises on the international markets and the stakes for securing the black gold increase, a consortium of American oil companies and the Central Intelligence Agency plot to secure the flow of the crude. In Africa, though, plans unravel as quickly as cheap socks, and promises between partners have the lifespan of a mayfly.

Nathan, now a Dean at a small college in Massachusetts, is visited by his former mentor at the Agency, who offers him a blunt choice: either travel to the Dark Continent to lay the groundwork for the coup d'état, or condemn the woman who saved his life to a brutal execution. Out of options, he returns to Africa, where he discovers that the Agency plans to reward his services with an oil-soaked grave.

Assisted by a coterie of new and old allies, including a beautiful vor with a thirst for power and a yeshiva bocher with a fondness for Armani suits, as well as his own sharp intelligence, considerable wit, and substantial charm, Nathan parries the Agency, circumvents the consortium, and exacts his own vengeance. In doing so, he learns that his choice of friends is as important as his choice of enemies.

A new school comes with new friends and new enemies, and lucky for Mickey, it also comes with a great new girlfriend, Ashley. For a while, it seems like Mickey's train-wreck of a life is finally improving — until Ashley vanishes without a trace. Unwilling to let another person walk out of his life, Mickey follows Ashley's trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that this seemingly sweet, shy girl isn't who she claimed to be. And neither was Mickey's father. Soon, Mickey learns about a conspiracy so shocking that it makes high school drama seem like a luxury — and leaves him questioning everything about the life he thought he knew.

Review: Coconut Cowboy by Tim Dorsey

Mysterious Reviews: Reviews of New Mysteries, Novels of Suspense, and Thrillers

A Mysterious Review of Coconut Cowboy by Tim Dorsey. A Serge A. Storms Mystery.

Review summary: Following the standard formula that has made this series so successful, this latest entry, however, may be too formulaic. Nearly every action can be choreographed in advance. Ardent fans of the series will be entertained, but others who have read earlier (and better) entries will likely be disappointed. (Click here for text of full review.)

Our rating: 3 of 5 stars

Coconut Cowboy Tim Dorsey

Coconut Cowboy

A Serge A. Storms Mystery
William Morrow (January 2016)

Available from Amazon.comAvailable from Barnes & NobleAvailable from iTunesAvailable from Kobo

Publisher synopsis: Obsessed with the iconic Sixties classic Easy Rider, encyclopedic Floridaphile, lovable serial killer, and movie buff extraordinaire Serge A. Storms devises his wildest plan yet: finish the journey begun by his freewheeling heroes, Captain America and Billy, tragically cut short by some shotgun-wielding rednecks.

Setting a course for the Florida panhandle, Captain Serge — with Coleman literally riding shotgun — mounts his classic motorcycle and hits the highway in search of the real America: the apple-pie-eating, freedom-swilling moms and pops of Main Street USA.

But the America he finds in the rural burgs dotting the neck of the peninsula is a little bit different … and a whole lot weirder than anything Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper encountered. In a state where criminal politicians are more common than gators, Serge and Coleman discover one particular speed-trap locale so aggressively inept at corruption that investigators are baffled where to start.

Venice, a long time ago. Three prominent Venetians await their most loathsome and foul dinner guest, the erstwhile envoy from the Queen of Britain: the rascal Fool Pocket.

This trio of cunning plotters — the merchant, Antonio; the senator, Montressor Brabantio; and the naval officer, Iago — have lured Pocket to a dark dungeon, promising an evening of sprits and debauchery with a rare Amontillado sherry and Brabantio's beautiful daughter, Portia.

But their invitation is, of course, bogus. The wine is drugged. The girl isn't even in the city limits. Desperate to rid themselves once and for all of the man who has consistently foiled their grand quest for power and wealth, they have lured him to his death. (How can such a small man, be such a huge obstacle?). But this Fool is no fool … and he's got more than a few tricks (and hand gestures) up his sleeve.

A woman's body is found near Miller's bridge and an anonymous phone call is made …

When Liz Farrell's uncle is taken in for questioning, life starts falling apart and Paula's words ring in Liz's ears: "you always do the wrong thing for the right reasons." Liz tries and tries to bury her fears so that she can take care of her aunt Helen and fend off her meddling aunt Paula but it's just no use. The police are swarming around her naïve uncle but Liz eventually wins over Detective Chief Inspector Sheldon Hunter and together the two of them might be able to help clear Reggie's name.

At least it seems that way — but nobody is talking to the police and even fewer people will talk to Liz.

When a devastating change occurs, Hunter has no choice but to close the case and Liz has nowhere to turn. Is Liz helping or is she dragging herself and her family deeper into trouble? Hunter and Farrell find themselves ever more deeply involved with the irreproachably genteel society of a small Cheshire town where, surely, nobody could have a motive for murder … or could they?

London. A snowy December, 1888. Sherlock Holmes, 34, is languishing and back on cocaine after a disastrous Ripper investigation. Watson can neither comfort nor rouse his friend — until a strangely encoded letter arrives from Paris.

Mlle La Victoire, a beautiful French cabaret star writes that her illegitimate son by an English lord has disappeared, and she has been attacked in the streets of Montmartre.

Racing to Paris with Watson at his side, Holmes discovers the missing child is only the tip of the iceberg of a much larger problem. The most valuable statue since the Winged Victory has been violently stolen in Marseilles, and several children from a silk mill in Lancashire have been found murdered. The clues in all three cases point to a single, untouchable man.

Will Holmes recover in time to find the missing boy and stop a rising tide of murders? To do so he must stay one step ahead of a dangerous French rival and the threatening interference of his own brother, Mycroft.

Someone is stealing the hearts of beautiful women…

Detective Mike McCabe moved from a top homicide job with the NYPD to Portland, Maine to leave his failed marriage and suspicions of wrongdoing behind, and to find a more peaceful life for himself and his 13 year old daughter.

But the small New England city is not nearly as safe as he thought.

On a warm September night, a missing high-school athlete is found dead in a scrap metal yard, her heart removed from her body with surgical precision. As outrage over the killing spreads, a young business woman disappears while out on a morning jog.

McCabe is certain both crimes are the work of one man — a murderer skilled in cardiac surgery who is using his scalpel to target young women. With the clock ticking, McCabe and his partner Maggie Savage find themselves in a desperate race against time to find and rescue the missing woman before she becomes the next victim of the sadistic killer's blade.
