From the number 1 long island Times–bestselling writer, a brand-new sequence in regards to the chilly War—and a distinct breed of warrior.
In the 1st weeks after international warfare II, a squeaky-clean new moment lieutenant named James D. Cronley Jr. is noticed and recruited for a brand new company that would ultimately be reworked into anything known as the CIA. One battle can have ended, yet one other one has already all started, opposed to an enemy that's higher, smarter, and extra vicious: the Soviet Union.
The Soviets have hit the floor working, and Cronley's activity is to aid frustrate them, harass them, and secret agent on them any method he can. His recruiter thinks he has the capability to develop into an asset—though, in fact, he can also screw up spectacularly. And in his first task, it feels like that's precisely what may perhaps ensue. He's obtained seven days to extract an important piece of knowledge from a Soviet agent, yet Cronley's controlled to rile up his more suitable officials (he turns out to have a expertise for it), and if he fails, it can be one of many shortest intelligence careers in history.
There are enemies everywhere—and, as Cronley is ready to determine, a few of them even put on an identical uniform he does.
