Historical fiction thriller takes readers into the Andes of South America; starts in New York City



An alternative fiction novel based on the MURDERS of two Deep South, gay black lawyers. Release Set for September 2013   The Plan is an alternative history and paranormal fiction thriller by civil rights author, Susan Klopfer. 

Here is how Susan describes her newest book: 

The bond between Clinton and Joe, two gay, black lawyers (one of them, married) is broken when Joe is reportedly found hanged. A suicide seems impossible to Clint, and Joe’s widow is acting cagey. Clinton Moore believes Joe was tortured and murdered, and that his and Joe’s shared obsession—investigating and fact gathering about the cover-up of various murders and assassinations of civil rights activists, including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,and President John F. Kennedy—is the reason for Joe’s death.

Clinton believes he is next on the witness hit list, and that solving Joe’s murder is his only chance of survival. When he discovers Joe’s wife has been spirited away as an expat to South America, he sends his trusted legal assistant, Mollie Johnson, to Cuenca, Ecuador for the adventure of her life. Mollie joins forces with journalist Sara Mercury, and together they take readers into the high Andes to bring home the widow, Tara Means. Filled with civil rights and alternative history to titillate the most sophisticated conspiracy theorist, Susan Klopfer‘s first foray into paranormal historical fiction is thought-provoking fodder and a fun read! Ties to the Ku Klux Klan, Militia, Neo Nazis, Chile’s Colonia Dignidad, NSA, FBI, CIA and the assassinations of two famous civil rights leaders and President John F. Kennedy keep the pace moving in this historical fiction, paranormal thriller that is first of a crime action adventure series.  “Stay with the story. It’s fast and furious, with a high-speed car chase in the Andes, and I promise you’ll be surprised.”

The Plan opens in New York City, when a history professor and crime sleuth reads news of an upcoming trial in the South American country of Chile. One of his own colleagues, Prof. Boris Weisfeiler, a Russian Jew and math professor from Penn State University, mysteriously disappeared years earlier in a Chilean CIA-supported torture camp, Colonia Dignidad. Dr. Dan Bell plans to travel to Santiago to aid his friend’s sister, Dr. Olga Weisfeiler, who will be testifying. THE PLAN moves to the Mississippi Delta, as lawyer Clinton Moore lays out the story of why he and his friend, Joe, have been murdered. But then, it is on to Cuenca, Ecuador as a talented paralegal tries to save the wife of her (now) dead boss’s dead best friend! A compromised but passionate journalist fired from The Dallas News, Sara Mercury, tries to help, with interference (good and bad) from an Embassy attaché, a flirtatious Cuencano chef, Don Colon, and a very old CIA asset with ties to the assassinations AND Colonia Dignidad! Jules Rocco Kimble, who goes by several aliases, makes his presence known via threats to Tara Means and others.
