The Renegade Spy Is Now Out In German – Staatsfeind!

It’s been a long time coming but approximately eighteen months after its English version made its debut, the German translation of the Renegade Spy is finally out!

The translated title is “Staatsfeind, Kampf Ohne Regeln” (Enemy of the State, War Without Rules“) because there is a stupid publishing law in Germany. Basically, all existing titles are copyrighted which means that if someone has already used a German title, you have to make yours different and unique. If you don’t, well then you’re setting yourself up for a copyright infringement lawsuit, and you’ll lose.
