Asheville, NC Author Publishes New-Age Spy Novel

July 22, 2022 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
Mission Log 1-13: Code Name Masterpiece, a new book by Sam Pate and Allison Rose, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

A new-age spy novel that embraces and dispels the tropes of traditional espionage, Mission Log 1-13 brings classic action to a contemporary audience. Examining the society and sentiments behind the foil of the secret agent, this story plays with and against the expectations of the genre to press forward a modern message of diversity through the action and adrenaline-filled world of spies.

With well-paced espionage, an inventive near-future, and a tightly wound thread of emotional pragmatism, Code Name Masterpiece is a masterpiece in its own right: a lighter read with heart and earnest assurance that so-called flaws and weaknesses are what strength draws from.
