Ellen Butler is the internationally bestselling author of the Karina Cardinal mystery series. Her experiences working on Capitol Hill and at a medical association in Washington, D.C., inspired the mystery-action series. Book critics call the Karina Cardinal mysteries “intelligent escapism.” Butler also writes historical fiction. Her WWII spy novel, The Brass Compass, recently won a 2022 Speak Up Talk Radio Firebird Book Award for historical fiction. The second book in the duology, Operation Blackbird: A Cold War Spy Novel, is Butler’s latest release. The novel is inspired by true events. Reviewers are calling it “riveting” and “a thrilling adventure.”
In today's discussion, we learn how Operation Blackbird was inspired by true events and how the tensions surrounding the Cold War when the book takes place invites comparison to today's ongoing concerns in Ukraine--and the possibility of Russia using nuclear weapons. Have we returned to a Cold War era?
