A stunningly clever idea lies at the heart of this sophisticated thriller. Former covert operative Ty Hunter has become, almost by accident, the number one film star in the world. Recruited for a clandestine mission to prevent the theft of nuclear warheads, he deploys every skill he has as an actor, soldier, and spy to match wits and muscle with an enigmatic billionaire and his nefarious protege even as he falls for the entrancing woman closest to them both.

Racing from Hollywood to the Black Sea, Camp David to Prague, "The Spy Who Jumped Off the Screen" is an electrifying novel with a hero who is sure to become an icon of the genre.
