From #1 New York Timesâ€“bestselling author W. E. B.
Griffin comes the dramatic third novel in the Clandestine
Operations series about the Cold War, the fledgling Central
Intelligence Agencyâ€”and a new breed of warrior.
January 1946: Two WACs leave an officersâ€™ club in Munich,
and four Soviet NKGB agents kidnap them at knifepoint in the
parking lot and shove them in the back of an ambulance. That
is the agentsâ€™ first mistake, and their last. One of the
WACs, a blond woman improbably named Claudette Colbert,
works for the new Directorate of Central Intelligence, and
three of the men end up dead and the fourth wounded.
The â€śincident,â€ť however, will send shock waves rippling up
and down the line and have major repercussions not only for
her, but for her boss, James Cronley, Chief DCI-Europe, and
for everybody involved in their still-evolving enterprise.
For, though the Germans may have been defeated, Cronley and
his company are on the front lines of an entirely different
kind of war now. The enemy has changed, the rules have
changedâ€”and the stakes have never been higher.
