Engaging story that captures the real-life world of those living and working in the shadows to effect change Be the fly on the wall as you follow the lives of a group of Cold War spies from indoctrination in the 1960s, through the fall of the Berlin Wall and beyond. Book 1 begins as future spies are chosen and trained. And ends as their life experiences are significantly changed because of the seismic shift in their geopolitical world with the fall of the Berlin Wall.

It will be interesting to read the next volume in the trilogy to learn about their (our) changed world, as it happened and was experienced by these unknown players.

The Soviets insisted “Coca-Cola City”, as it was known, never existed, but those who attended the academy say otherwise. Scott Lomac’s new spy novel is a fictionalized account of the true events of the children who attended this “Spy Academy” during the Cold War. You’re sucked in from the first page, and you become immersed in the characters and the story. If you’re a fan of espionage, spy novels, or WWII history, this book is a must-read.


Scott Lomac lives in northern Virginia with his wife. After retiring as a respiratory therapist, he picked up an old manuscript and began typing away during the Covid-19 restrictions.
