Jacksonville Author brings the KGB to the First Coast
The masks that we each wear, the roles that we are forced to play every day of our lives - how often are we defined by what we are, rather than who we are? Have you ever thought to yourself “What would I give for one genuine, one real, self-defining moment?” Vivian Waite, Wolfe’s unforgettable heroine in Waite for Midnight, has spent her entire life pretending to be someone else. As a KGB mozhno in 1957 Florida, she seduces whomever her novator and would-be paramour Viktor Petrov has targeted for her. Her life is changed dramatically, however, when a small oceanographic firm in Florida discovers a dangerous breach in the American coastal defenses exposing a secret which catapults the fledgling KGB agent, the little girl who survived the Siege of Leningrad, into the gnashing maw of the “Space Race” and leaves her fighting for her life.
Will Vivian’s near-photographic memory, her quick thinking, and her passion for Viktor be enough to enable her to evade her enemies, to define her identity… to live? Can Vivian, an inexperienced former mozhno, little more than a KBG call girl, piece together an answer for the riddle that lies off the Florida coast - the enigmatic C-FAR breach? Wolfe’s Waite for Midnight follows Vivian Waite as she struggles to capture the one real moment that will allow her to redefine herself in a world where the boundaries between the roles of hero and villain are often blurred or perhaps even nonexistent.
“J.B. is a natural story teller, and his talent for weaving threads of actual history into the tapestry of his fiction is compelling,” said Wolfe fan and fellow Floridian, Raymond Jacobs, “You can almost feel the sand between your toes in his descriptions of Florida.”
Waite for Midnight is currently available for purchase at Melange Books (http://www.melange-books.com/) and will soon be available at a variety of other online retail booksellers.
J.B. Wolfe has been an artist, an infantry paratrooper, and a railroader - traveling throughout the American south before finally settling down to bring his pen to bear on paper. Waite for Midnight is his first novel.
