review The Assassination Option 103 In Top Secret WEB Griffin introduced a remarkable new cast of heroes as they found themselves on the front lines of an entirely different kind of war Now these men and women are going to find out what they’ve really gotten themselves into James Cronley thought he had done well he didn’t know he’d done this wellHis first successful mission for the about to be official new Central Intelligence Directorate has drawn a. This is book two in the new series entitled Clandestine Operation Series Captain James Cronley is back with the same characters we met in book oneCronley is now in charge of running the European division of the Directorate of Central intelligence now known as the CIA We are introduced to some new characters such as Maksymilian Ostrowski a free Polish Air Force veteran now a displaced person Russian triple agent Seven K who spied for the Abwehr Ost is also revealed in this storyOne of the things I like about Griffins books is that Griffin slips historical facts into the story such as the Katyn Forest massacre Hoover s botched attempt at Manhattan Project secrecy I did note an error in the historical fact in that Griffin had created the USAF one year prior to its actual date of 14 September 1947Lots of suspense is provided with a top secret Russian agent Colonel Sergei Likbanev of the NKGB who is turned and taken to Argentina Now the excitement builds trying to sneak his family out of RussiaWhat I like about Griffin books are the mixture of fact and fiction along with mixing real people with fictional characters Griffin also tends to insert one or characters from prior books into the story I wonder is the character Freddy Hessinger is a fictional portrayal of Henry Kissinger there is a lots of similarities between the two in the story In this series Griffin is giving us a historical look at post war GermanyI noted this series which shadows cold war history is revealing how history repeats itself in the headlines of today s news Anyone interested in historical fiction of the cold war will enjoy this book Alexander Cendese narrated this book
