CITY OF WINDOWS (FILM RIGHTS)

When Manhattan is buried by the worst blizzard to hit the East Coast in a century, it’s not the lunar temperatures or the six feet of snow blanketing the concrete eco-system that paralyzes the city – it’s the sniper targeting law enforcement officers. After computer model results show that the killer is somehow bending the laws of physics, university professor (and former FBI agent) Dr. Lucas Page is pulled out of retirement to put his skill set against both man and nature. But after joining the investigation, Page learns that the FBI is focusing in the wrong direction, and that someone inside the FBI might actually be orchestrating the killings.

0

Lochery’s book tells the story of Lisbon’s role in the history of World War II, though not a gun was fired there. The only European city in which both the Allies and the Axis powers operated openly, it was temporary home to much of Europe’s exiled royalty, over one million refugees seeking passage to the U.S., and a host of spies from every nation fighting in the war, secret police, captains of industry, bankers, prominent Jews, writers and artists, escaped POWs, and black marketeers. An operations officer writing in 1944 described the daily scene at Lisbon’s airport as being like the movie “Casablanca,” times twenty.
