With James Douglas, you never know for sure whether it’s fiction, or whether he knows something we don’t…

They murdered her father, stalked her family and invaded her home. Now they were coming for her life.

When Leslie Palmer achieves a top position with the Office of Naval Intelligence based in the World Trade Center in New York City, the brilliant scientist, who is able to read human character by analyzing body language, has a young lover and foresees a good life for her twin sons. Her dreams are fulfilled.

But she is suddenly thrown into a nightmare. Knowing her talents, the CIA engages her for a delicate mission, in which she is to act as a stand-in for the First Lady in the event of a breach of national security. What first appears to be nothing more than an acting job turns into a deadly threat to her as well as the nation when she discovers Al Qaeda has a man deep undercover within the CIA. If she confides in the wrong person, she risks the lives of her sons.

Leslie Palmer, code-name Cinderella, has become a key player in the greatest conspiracy ever, to destroy the United States Government, just a few weeks after 9/11.

“First published in Germany in September 2000, this spy thriller…made headlines for its eerily prescient premise, which includes the attempted terrorist destruction of a U.S. aircraft carrier and the bombing of a New York City office building…readers will no doubt marvel at Douglas’s prophetic vision.” - Publishers Weekly
