Assigned to the Nuremberg war trials, special agent James
Cronley, Jr., finds himself fighting several wars at once,
in the dramatic new Clandestine Operations novel about the
birth of the Central Intelligence Agency and the Cold War.
When Jim Cronley hears he's just won the Legion of Merit, he
figures there's another shoe to drop, and it's a big one:
he's out as Chief, DCI-Europe. His new assignments, however,
couldn't be bigger: to protect the U.S. chief prosecutor in
the Nuremberg trials from a rumored Soviet NKGB kidnapping,
and to hunt down and dismantle the infamous Odessa, an
organization dedicated to helping Nazi war criminals escape
to South America.
It doesn't take long for the first attempt on his life, and
then the second. NKGB or Odessa? Who can tell? The deeper he
pushes, the more secrets tumble out: a scheme to swap Nazi
gold for currency, a religious cult organized around Himmler
himself, an NKGB agent who is actually working for the
Mossad, a German cousin who turns out to be more malevolent
than he appears--and a distractingly attractive
newspaperwoman who seems to be asking an awful lot of
questions. Which one will turn out to be the most dangerous?
Cronley wishes he knew.
