A New York Times Bestselling Author -- October 1945: The Germans and Japanese have surrendered. 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. In the closing months of the war, the U. S. made a secret deal with the head of German intelligence's Soviet section: In exchange for a treasure trove of intelligence, his people would be spirited to safety. It's up to Frade and company to keep them all safe. But someone has other ideas.
