AN EXCITING, POWERFUL NOVEL ABOUT A DEDICATED UNDERCOVER MAN FOR WHOM THE COLD WAR IS A RED-HOT, EXPLOSIVE REALITY!
From New Guinea to Athens to Africa, this sweeping, powerful novel traces the exciting and always dangerous career of a hero of our time.
First as a dive-bomber pilot, then as an undercover agent, Mark Marklay daily risks his life for his country. And he freely accepts the blind obedience demanded of him even when it means blotting out private scruples or leaving his beautiful Greek wife in the middle of their honeymoon.
But he is forced to re-evaluate his marriage, his life and the entire Cold War struggle when he is betrayed and captured while on a dangerous mission in Africa—and is confronted with evidence that the informer has been his own wife!
“…impressive beyond anything Wakeman has done before. It fulfills an obligation to entertain without bypassing the mind or overlooking chances to kick sacred cows when they stray onto the path.”—The New York Times Book Review
