The Beatles Spy goes live on Amazon!

The year is 1965. American John Kaplan has come to Paris to study art. He is a serious Beatle fan, with the hair, the boots, sporting the current mod fashion. At a local cafe, John is reading a Beatle fan magazine and is noticed by a suave Russian, Alexi Smirnoff, who strikes up a conversation. Alexi tells John that Beatle music is banned behind the Iron Curtain and puts forth the proposition that John could make a substantial amount of money smuggling Beatles recordings. The Russian offers to accompany him on a visit into the Soviet Bloc and assures John that, being an American, if he were caught, the authorities would consider it an innocent mistake. John is not comfortable with the idea, but is motivated to give it a try after he encounters a pretty girl and feels the need to upgrade his lifestyle. Still, John has concerns. Is smuggling Beatles music behind the Iron Curtain, as Alexi says, "easy as a stroll down the Champs Elysees"? Are the Russian man's motives completely altruistic? If discovered, would his punishment be nothing more than a slap on the wrist and a shove back over the border? John's questions will all be answered soon enough, as he embarks on the path to become The Beatles Spy.

Get it here.
