W.E.B Griffin has no shortage of bestselling series. His newest, the Clandestine Operation franchise, which is set during the Cold War, is just two books long. The third novel, Curtain Of Death (which he co-authored with William Butterworth), will hit bookstores on December 27th and is already available for pre-order.
Personally, I’m a sucker for anything written during the Cold War era, so I can’t wait to check this out. Scroll down to read the official details, which sounds pretty awesome, and for a look at the newly released cover art.
From the publisher:
“From #1 New York Times–bestselling author W. E. B. Griffin comes the dramatic third novel in the Clandestine Operations series about the Cold War, the fledgling Central Intelligence Agency—and a new breed of warrior.
January 1946: Two WACs leave an officers’ club in Munich, and four Soviet NKGB agents kidnap them at knifepoint in the parking lot and shove them in the back of an ambulance. That is the agents’ first mistake, and their last. One of the WACs, a blond woman improbably named Claudette Colbert, works for the new Directorate of Central Intelligence, and three of the men end up dead and the fourth wounded.
The “incident,” however, will send shock waves rippling up and down the line and have major repercussions not only for her, but for her boss, James Cronley, Chief DCI-Europe, and for everybody involved in their still-evolving enterprise. For, though the Germans may have been defeated, Cronley and his company are on the front lines of an entirely different kind of war now. The enemy has changed, the rules have changed—and the stakes have never been higher.”
