Product Description

There's nothing more intriguing than a true-life thriller, where theprotagonist maneuvers through a world of high-stake drugs, espionage,and terror.  Along the way, he unwisely falls in love with a woman whose commitment to her cause is greater than the love she shares with him."I Was, I Am, I Will Be" chronicles the life of a young British man,born into wealth, prestige and a family name dating back to the 1600's. But this storied background isn't enough to save John Hugo Coventryfrom the lure of easy money when the opportunity arises.  Partnered with two men, they perpetrate a scheme to defraud the British Government out of money.
When the wheels of the fraud fall off and the authorities close in, Coventry is faced with a life changing decision.  Work undercoverfor the British Government's Customs and Excise Department or go toprison.  To save his own skin, he chooses to help the government bysecretly collecting information on a gang of drug runners.  Coventrysoon discovers the gang is smuggling more than drugs and is highlyconnected to terrorists in both Ireland and France.  Now working withBritish Intelligence as well as the Customs and Excise Department, herelays information about IRA plans to smuggle arms and illicit drugsinto the United Kingdom, as well as giving the authorities the low-downon the people involved.
Feeling frightened and alone, he takes comfort in the arms ofMichelle, a well-known member of the Action Directe terrorist group inFrance.  Passion ignites, and the two become improbable lovers, foreverconnected by a deep seeded bond.  But she has no idea he's a spy, andCoventry is torn between his love for her and his obligation to theBritish Government.  Along the way, he learns of the connection betweenMichelle's Action Directe group and the notorious Baader Meinhoff gang, a left wing terrorist group in Germany.  He realizes her convictions tothe cause are incredibly fervent and is terrified he will loose her tothe violence.  Already in enough trouble of his own, Coventry knows heshould walk away, but the love he feels for Michelle keeps him in astranglehold.
Michelle is unwilling to drag him deeper into her dangerousworld, and begs Coventry to leave Britain and escape to South Africawhere her connections in the South African Army will keep him safe.During one of her visits to South Africa, Michelle hands him a cardinscribed with the words, "I Was, I Am, I Will Be".  He has no idea what it means and is left puzzled by her goodbye.  Missing both Michelle and his family, he finally decides he's had enough of being undercover andon the run and arranges his return to Britain.  Going home means certain jail time but Coventry is ready to pay the punishment for his crime.It's the only way to break free from the government's grip.
While in prison, he's severely beaten by IRA insiders lookingfor some payback, so the government reduces his sentence and sets himfree.  Upon his release, he's shocked to hear of Michelle's death andthe secret she'd kept hidden from him.  The Customs and ExciseDepartment offers him more undercover work, but Coventry has had enoughof their fun and games and decides that maybe he'd be better offstarting a new life in the United States.
As much as he hates to leave England and his family, he knows a fresh start is for the best and boards a plane for the flight toAmerica.  Sitting in his American hotel room, sipping on a tall, stiffdrink, he opens the newspaper to read that the Baader Meinhoff gang hasdecided to stop their terrorist attacks.  The newspaper story ends with a message from Baader Meinhoff, "I Was, I Am, I Will Be."  A chill runsdown his spine as he remembers the inscription on Michelle's card.  Hecan't help but reflect on everything he's been through over the last few years and wonders, "What the hell was I thinking?"

About the Author

John Coventry John Coventry was born near Liverpool in North England. He's led an incredible life, travelled extensively, met many interesting people and done many interesting things. "I Was, I Am, I Will Be" is the true story of his life and is his first foray into the world of writing. His story is one of passion, intrigue, and secrets. At times, painful to write, it is glimpse into a dark and clandestine world few dare to enter. Trish Faber Trish Faber was born in Markham Ontario, Canada, the youngest of five children. She began to write at the age of five, using her family as characters in her first epic novel, "The Rabbit Family". Although never formally published, the single, handwritten, and self-illustrated copy of "The Rabbit Family" did make appearances at the local school, grocery store, bowling alley and bridge club meetings, courtesy of an enthusiastic mother and her large purse. Trish is grateful to her family for allowing her to develop her imagination and creative flair without ever passing judgment. She realizes that at times this must have been difficult. Trish holds an Honours Degree in English and History from the University of Western Ontario, and a life degree in the trials and tribulations of being a restaurant owner, an academic tutor and life skills coach, as well as a business owner. She likes music, sports, tomato soup, and has secret aspirations of one day becoming a rock star. Most of all, she loves spending quality time with her friends and family. "I Was, I Am, I Will Be", written in collaboration with John Coventry is her second full-length novel. “Pierre’s Story” – the sequel to “I Was, I Am, I Will Be” is also available through Wonder Voice Press.
