Men at War #07: The Spymastersby W E B Griffin
Synopses & Reviews
#1 Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author W.E.B. Griffin continues his gripping series featuring the legendary OSS—fighting a silent war of spies and assassins in the shadows of World War II.
Summer 1943. Two of the Allies most important plans for winning World War II are at grave risk—the coming D-Day invasion and the Manhattan Projects race to build the atomic bomb.
OSS spy chief William Wild Bill” Donovan turns to his top agent, Dick Canidy, and his team. Theyve certainly got their work cut out for them. In the weeks to come, they must fight not only the enemy in the field—and figure out how to sabotage Germanys new aerial torpedo” rockets—but also the enemy within.
Someone is feeding Manhattan Project secrets to the Soviets. And if the Soviets build their own atomic bomb, winning the war might only lead to another, even more terrible conflict
FIRST TIME IN PAPERBACK
"Bestseller Griffin's solid seventh Men at War novel (after 2007's The Double Agents), the third in collaboration with son Butterworth, finds top OSS agent Maj. Richard Caniday involved in both a mission to keep Ike's imminent plan to invade Sicily a secret and an attempt to sabotage the Nazi V-1 and V-2 program. Goebbels has broadcast that the 'aerial torpedo' attacks will first target London, starting in December 1943. To make the situation even more ominous, the Germans are planning to load nerve gas into the missiles' warheads, a move guaranteed to sow panic. Eschewing extended battle scenes and individual combat for the most part, the authors focus on spy missions behind enemy lines and recreations of meetings between historical characters. You can almost taste the gin and tonic as FDR and OSS chief William 'Wild Bill' Donovan meet on the presidential yacht Sequoia to discuss plans for winning the war. Some readers might wish for more action, but series fans should be satisfied." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
