The Paralegal is a story about one of the most dangerous type of spies who sourced from well-meaning scientists, research librarians, politicians and government stenographers for the purpose of nuclear proliferation. Unknown to the spy is a Paralegal, who works in the New York State Attorney General's office securities division and who was previously his former clerical employee at a Wall Street firm, that has him in her gaze. Overladen with detail work, the checklist reviewer and the least praised workhorse for the lawyer group, this Paralegal emerges as the forefront of responsibility for protecting the public against the demons of subversion and their political allies. Her suspicions and those of her lover surround and affect critical events of evasions and successes that make up the story.
Mysteriously emerging from Eastern Europe, with millions in old Mexican bonds apparently obtained by a Soviet Arab officer from Holocaust victims, the espionage agent enters the United States under the fraudulent cover as a Polish refugee. The story pursues this espionage agent from obscure beginnings, to friendships with U.S. Senators, top IRS officials, all in the way of his spying mission that takes him abroad. In the course of his work, he is constantly in fear of unknown principals who seek his elimination and in fear of his disclosure.
The Paralegal is based on true events which occurred in my Father's life soon after World War II and involves the spread of technical nuclear information that he was closely associated with. All names, dates and events have been altered for the safety and privacy of those involved.
