On December 11th, W.E.B. Griffin’s New York Times bestselling Clandestine Operations series continues with The Enemy of My Enemy.
Co-authored with his son, William E. Butterworth, Griffin’s latest thriller follows last year’s Death at Nuremberg, and is the fifth book in this particular franchise. There’s no word yet on whether or not Griffin’s other popular series, Badge of Honor, will continue this year. Previously, Griffin released new books in each franchise every year — so there’s a good chance the follow-up to Broke Trust will come in 2018. We’re just waiting for an official announcement.
In the meantime, check out the plot details and cover art for The Enemy of My Enemy below!
Special agent James Cronley, Jr., finds that fighting both ex-Nazis and the Soviet NKGB can lead to strange bedfellows, in the dramatic new Clandestine Operations novel about the birth of the CIA and the Cold War.
A month ago, Cronley managed to capture two notorious Nazi war criminals, but not without leaving some dead bodies and outraged Austrian police in his wake. He’s been laying low ever since, but that little vacation is about to end. Somebody–Odessa, the NKGB, the Hungarian Secret Police?–has broken the criminals out of jail, and now he must track them down again.
But there’s more to it than that. Evidence has surfaced that in the war’s last gasps, Heinrich Himmler had stashed away a fortune to build a secret religion, dedicated both to Himmler and to creating the Fourth Reich. That money is still out there in the hands of Odessa, and that infamous organization seems to have acquired a surprising–and troubling–ally.
Cronley is fast finding out that the phrase, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend,” can mean a lot of different things, and that it is not always clear which people he can trust, and which are out to kill him.
