May 1945. Wars come to an end. But then new ones begin. It’s a stunning leap from one war to a new world of uncertainty and danger.
Just weeks after Hitler’s suicide, Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the Office of Strategic Services find themselves up to their necks in battles every bit as fierce as the ones just ended.
The first is political — the very survival of the OSS, with every department from Treasury to War to the FBI grabbing for its covert agents and assets.
The second is military — for years, the OSS has had him deep into espionage dealing with German smuggling in Argentina — and smuggling Germans into Argentina. Why? Because those Germans know a great deal about Soviet KGB agents in America's atomic bomb program. Leading to . . .
The third, and a battle on a much grander scale: The possible next world war against Red Joe Stalin and his voracious ambitions. To get a jump on the latter, Frade has been conducting a secret operation against the Communists, one of great daring — and greater danger.
But to conduct it and not be discovered, he and his men must walk a perilously dark line.
One slip — and everyone becomes a casualty of war.
