Sam Moffieabout this book: Remember the Cold War? You should. Sam Moffie did and the result is a very different perspective of the USA vs the USSR or 'us' vs 'them'. How could someone make something that was so black and white so colorful? Easy, it is a novel by Sam Moffie.
Moffie takes a tid-bit of truth that was leaked after the fall of the USSR and been an urban legend for decades in Hollywood. Joe Stalin has ordered the assassination of American icon John Wayne and nothing will stop the communist hit-squad sent out to murder John Wayne.
Well, except for making the movie The Conqueror, Howard Hughes, Dick Powell, Susan Hayward, Johnny Stompanato and Mickey Cohen to name a few of the real life people who come to life to battle with fists, money, and ideas of the perfect way of life.
Moffie tells the truth about the aforementioned -- give or take a lie or two or nine and the results will make you think twice before you trust your federal government again.
