Duration: 10 hours 23 minutes
JANUARY: Two WACs leave an officers' club in Munich and four Soviet NKGB agents kidnap them at knifepoint in the parking lot and shove them into the back of an ambulance. That is the agents' first mistake. And their last. One of the WACs, a blonde 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 everybody involved in their still-evolving enterprise. For although 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.
Filled with all the authenticity, color, and propulsive storytelling for which Griffin is acclaimed, Curtain of Death is top-level drama from the master of the military thriller.
