• An exciting new action novel written by a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel of infantry who served on the staff of the U.S. Commander Berlin at the height of the Cold War.

Hot on the heels of a dressing-down by the U.S. Commander Berlin, U.S. Army Major Harry Holbrook receives an unexpected luncheon invitation from the Soviet commandant of Spandau Prison, where the last three remaining Nazi war criminals are incarcerated. A contact in East Berlin alerts Holbrook that the Red Army faction will attempt to assassinate West Berlin Mayor Willi Brandt and the U.S. Commander at the opening of the Fifth Annual German-American Volksfest. Holbrook helps foil the plot. Coming to trust his contact, Holbrook knows he should act when he is tipped off that a Mossad terrorist attempts to assassinate two of the three Spandau prisoners upon their release from the prison...

Set in the divided city of Berlin in the mid-1960s where recent incidents have brought the world closer to nuclear war than ever before, this debut novel brings a complex tapestry of events to a breathtaking conclusion.
