"Vermeulen.  Valentin Vermeulen" may not roll off the tongue like the name of other international men of mystery.  But the fictional Vermeulen didn't really mean to get caught up in cloak-and-dagger stuff; he's a fraud investigator and the central figure in a fourth novel by Ashlander Michael Niemann, this one called "No Right Way."

Michael Niemann brings his extensive knowledge of world affairs and politics to bear on his work.  There are many real-world details of recent political and international situations.He visits the studio to talk about the scrapes from which his creation escapes this time.  Or does he?
