From the #1 New York Times bestselling author, a brand-new series about
the Cold War—and a different breed of warrior
In the first weeks after
World War II, a squeaky-clean new second lieutenant named James D. Cronley, Jr.
is spotted and recruited for a new enterprise that will eventually be
transformed into something called the CIA. One war may have ended, but another
one has already begun, against an enemy that is bigger, smarter, and more
vicious: the Soviet Union.
The Soviets have hit the
ground running, and Cronley’s job is to help frustrate them, harass them, and
spy on them any way he can. His recruiter thinks he has the potential to become
an asset—though, of course, he could also screw up spectacularly. And in his
first assignment, it looks like that’s exactly what might happen. He’s got
seven days to extract a vital piece of information from a Soviet agent, but
Cronley’s managed to rile up his superior officers (he seems to have a talent
for it), and if he fails, it could be one of the shortest intelligence careers
There are enemies
everywhere—and, as Cronley is about to find out, some of them even wear the
same uniform he does. Download and start listening now!
