A member of Beth El recently published an historical novel/techno-thriller entitled Baltimore Logic. The novel was written using a pseudonym, Basil Truscott.
Set in pre-World War II Baltimore (1939-1941), Baltimore Logic chronicles the saga of Martin Victor, a Jewish teacher of history at Baltimore City College High School, who gets drafted into a counter-intelligence unit composed of a uniquely-diverse collection of FBI, Office of Naval Intelligence and Baltimore City Police Department personnel. Tasked with protecting local aerospace and electronics enterprises from sophisticated and highly-motivated Axis spies, Martin and his colleagues play a complex zero-sum game of espionage within Baltimore’s pressure-cooker of ethnic, religious, and racial communities. Poignant and heroic (in a classical Greek sense), Baltimore Logic rivets the reader's attention from its mysterious beginning to its mystical end.
It is recommended that attendees read the book prior to the program. For Zoom access information, please contact Lydia Lutt (firstname.lastname@example.org).
