"Jim Cronley, Chief of Directorate of Central Intelligence Europe, finds that fighting both ex-Nazis and the Soviet NKGB can lead to strange bedfellows, in the dramatic new Clandestine Operations novel about the birth of the CIA and the Cold War. A month ago, Cronley managed to capture two notorious Nazi war criminals, but not without leaving some dead bodies and outraged Austrian police in his wake. He’s been lying low in Argentina ever since, but that forced exile is about to end. Somebody – Odessa, the NKGB, the Hungarian Secret Police? – has broken the criminals out of jail, and he must track them down again.But there’s more to it than that. Evidence has surfaced that in the war’s last gasps, Heinrich Himmler had stashed away a fortune to build a secret religion, dedicated both to Himmler and to creating the Fourth Reich. That money – estimated in the hundreds of millions of dollars – is still out there in the hands of Odessa, and that infamous organization seems to have acquired a surprising – and troubling – ally.Cronley is fast finding out that the phrase “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” can mean a lot of different things, and that it is not always clear which people he can trust – and which bastards are out to kill him"-- Author's website.
