Summary: Honor bound: October 1942. At a secret rendezvous point off the coast of neutral Argentina, a small merchant ship delivers supplies to Nazi submarines and raiders. The OSS is determined to sabotage the operation by any means necessary. But one of the key saboteurs must fight his own private battle between duty and honor. Because he was chosen for a reason -- to gain the trust and support of his own flesh and blood. A powerful Argentinian called "el Coronel." The father he never knew ...
Behind the lines: World War II. On the island of Mindanao, the Philippines, a man calling himself "General" Fertig has set himself up as a guerrilla leader to harass the Japanese. Army records show that the only officer named Fertig in the Philippines is a reserve lieutenant colonel of the Corps of Engineers, reported MIA on Luzon. It's Marine lieutenant Ken McCoy's mission to sneak behind the lines and find out if he's for real.
Murders: A cop is found shot dead in his home--is it connected to corruption in the narcotics division? A bar owner and his partner's wife are in the wrong place at the wrong time and are gunned down together--was it a mob hit? A beautiful, well-connected young woman dies an ugly death in her parent's mansion--was it accidental? It's up to Special Operations Division detectives Washington, Payne, and their crew to piece together.
