October 1945. The Germans have surrendered. The Japanese have surrendered. The OSS has been disbanded. For Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS, it should be time to pack up. But they have far more important things to do.
Chief among them is the protection of their assets, especially the human ones. In the closing months of the war, the U.S. made a secret deal with General Reinhard Gehlen, head of German intelligence’s Soviet section. In exchange for a treasure trove of intel on the Soviets — in particular the identity of the Soviet spies who have infiltrated the U.S.’s atomic bomb program — Gehlen’s people would be spirited to safety in Argentina.
Only a handful of people know about the deal. If word got out, all hell would break loose — and the U.S. would lose some of the most valuable intelligence sources they possess. And the atomic bomb secrets — well, it didn’t bear thinking about what would happen to them.
It is up to Frade and company to keep them all safe.
But some people have other ideas...
“The pages fly by as the authors mix action and intrigue with a fascinating look at Juan Perón and the Argentina of 1945.”
“Nothing beats a cinderblock-sized adventure novel on a winter weekend.”
