October 1945. The war is over. The OSS has been disbanded. But for Cletus Frade and his colleagues in the OSS, the fight goes on
In the closing months of the war, the United States made a secret deal with Reinhard Gehlen, head of German intelligence’s Soviet section. In exchange for a treasure trove of intelligence on the Soviets and their spies within the U.S. atomic bomb program, Gehlen’s people would be spirited to safety in Argentina.
Only a handful of people know about the deal. If word got out, all hell would break looseand the U.S. would lose some of the most valuable intelligence sources they possess. It is up to Frade and company to keep them safe.
But some people have other ideas...
