US Army detective Billy Boyle is called to investigate a
mysterious murder in a Normandy farmhouse that threatens
July, 1944, a full month after D-Day. Billy, Kaz, and Big
Mike are assigned to investigate a murder close to the front
lines in Normandy. An American officer has been found dead
in a manor house serving as an advance headquarters outside
the town of TrÃ©viÃ¨res. Major Jerome was far from his own
unit, arrived unexpectedly, and was murdered in the dark of
The investigation is shrouded in secrecy, due to the highly
confidential nature of the American unit headquartered
nearby in the Norman hedgerow country: the 23rd Headquarters
Special Troops, aka, the Ghost Army. This vague name covers
a thousand-man unit with a unique mission within the US
Army: to impersonate other US Army units by creating
deceptions using radio traffic, dummy inflatable vehicles,
and sound effects, causing the enemy to think they are
facing large formations. Not even the units adjacent to
their positions know what they are doing. But there are
German spies and informants everywhere, and Billy must tread
carefully, unmasking the murder while safeguarding the
secret of the Ghost Armyâ€”a secret which, if discovered,
could turn the tide of war decisively against the Allies.
