9780143142041: The Double Agents

W.E.B. Griffin s iconoclastic OSS heroes face an historic challenge in the brand-new volume of the New York Times-bestselling series.
Critics and fans alike welcomed the return of the shrewd, sharp, rousing ( Kirkus Reviews) Men at War series: The Saboteurs is good entertainment and the fast-paced and exciting novel Griffin s readers have come to expect. This is Griffin s 36th novel and his son s first; one wonders how prolific a force Griffin & Son will be! ( Library Journal)
Now, Dick Canidy and colleagues in the Office of Strategic Services face an even greater task to convince Hitler and the Axis powers that the invasion of the European continent will take place anywhere but on the beaches of Nazi-occupied France. Wild Bill Donovan s men have several tactics in mind, but some of the people they must use are not the most reliable are, in fact, most likely spying for both sides so the deceptions require layer upon layer of intrigue, and all it will take is one slip to send the whole thing tumbling down like a house of cards. Are the OSS agents up to it? They certainly think so.
And then the body is found floating off the coast of Spain. . . .
Filled to the brim with action, character, and the deep understanding of the military heart and mind that have made Griffin s books so outstanding, The Double Agents is irresistible storyteller from a master of the craft."
