Last Updated on October 9, 2019The author Mitch Silver is a relatively newcomer to the world of book writers, with three thrillers published to date. Of course, the term “newcomer” is relative since the author’s debut novel, In Secret Service, was published back in 2007.
Here are the Mitch Silver books in order for his standalone novels. The book list is updated as soon as a new book is published.

Mitch Silver Books Synopsis
In Secret Service
When in 1964 Ian Flemming sealed a package, he was hoping that the manuscript within would only be discovered a half century later. The manuscript was a real spy story, unlike his James Bond novels which were only that, fictional novels.
In 2005, a young American academic, Amy Greenberg, flew over to Ireland to retrieve what was in her grandfather’s safe deposit box. Much to her surprise, it only contained that very old manuscript once Ian Flemming, a secret and undercover operative during WWIi, hid away for posterity.
Now Amy has to run against time to figure out the hidden secrets of that manuscript before it became too late for her and many others. The story is so explosive that it involves many high-flighers of the time, including the King of England, the US President, and even Hitler himself.
In fact, that very manuscript is so confidential and it includes such deep secrets that there are many dangerous people who don’t want that information ever coming out, even if it means killing off the source, which is Amy herself.
It is the year 2017. When a construction worker accidentally finds a skeletal arm which has a handcuff on it, the question that beggs an answer is who was that person and why the handcuff? Is this construction site the place of an old prison? Was this a courier who was killed off back in the day? Or maybe there is something even more sinister at play here?
And what does a Bible placed on Hitler’s desk have to do with the course of history forever being changed? The conspiracy in this book involves, once again, Hitler, and even a young Kennedy this time.
The Apollo Deception
Gary Stephens is a director of beer and yogurt ads. After going through his father’s things, he discovers something really strange. Could the Apollo 11 Moon landing have been faked, and if yes, did his father help fake it? The old cans of 35mm films Gary discovered during his search look identical to the footage NASA showed about the Moon landing, but the interesting thing is that the films are older than the actual Moon landing itself.
So what did really happen, and what was the real deal with Apollo 11? What was its real mission instead?
Mitch Silver Author Bio
The author Mitch Silver was born in Brooklyn in 1946 but was raised in Long Island. Growing up, he attended two colleges, Yale and Harvard Law School. However, based on his own admission, he “lasted three days. I know everything through Wednesday, but after that…”
Before becoming a book author, he worked as a copywriter and creative director for several agencies, including Grey Advertising, where he worked on accounts such as P&G, General Foods/Nabisco, Renault cars, and later for Young & Rubicam, working on major accounts like Colgate-Palmolive, Dannon, Weight Watchers, Accenture. Between 200 and 2001, he worked as the company’s European Creative Director for the Paris Colgate & Palmolive account.
Currently, Mitch and Ellen Silver live in the US in Rye, New York with their two children, Sloane and Perry.
The first Mitch Silver book, In Secret Service, is a thriller novel that has been often compared to the James Bond books. Not surprising, since the story actually involves Ian Flemming, the author of the very James Bond novels.
If you ever loved the James Bond and Ian Flemming adventure stories, In Secret Service by Mitch Silver is a great book to sink your teeth into.
Some 10 years after the publication of the first Mitch Silver book, the author wrote a second thriller which also involves the same part of history depicted in In Secret Service, the Second World War.
This book features yet another female character, Lara Klimt, professor of Geopolitics, who is a “bookworm” that does research in a Russian archive, stumbles on some old papers which are troubling enough that she now intends to find out the conspiracy behind some events that happened during WWII. The book has several storylines going, and Lara’s story is just one of them.
The third book deals with the Apollo 11 moon landing and poses the question – what if it was a scam and it never happened?
While the three Mitch Silver books are standalones, meaning that you don’t have to read them in a proper order, as they have different main storylines and characters, they are equally targeting the very same readership: book readers who love thriller spy novels involving WWII, as well as those who dig conspiracy theories involving the very same time period.
Praise for Mitch Silver
The Bookworm is that very rare, almost extinct thriller: well plotted, intelligent as hell, with a truly memorable main character―’Lara The Bookworm.’ This is definitely sterling Silver! (James Patterson)
It is a masterpiece of speculative revisionism and in this aspect a captivating read, a romp. (The Washington Times)
The historical frame, including an alternate view of why Germany turned its wartime focus from England to the USSR, proves fascinating; the pace is agreeably fast; and the intelligent, capable Klimt makes an engaging lead character. (Booklist)
Compelling…. A story Ian Fleming himself would have enjoyed. (Rocky Mountain News)
A great thriller, worthy of Ian Fleming himself — and the story might ever be true. (Lee Child)
