In Cold Blood
For Detective Forrest, evil has a distinctive smell. When a dead girl’s severed organs are found strung from a tree, Forrest fears that French Revolution-era savagery is making a comeback… Sara Damsgaard is in debt, newly widowed, and desperate to provide for her young sister. Her new position as a boarding school headmistress seems like the perfect fresh start… if it weren’t for the brutal attacks sweeping through the student body.
The Cold War Begins
As the Cold War between East and West commences, so does our story. The setting is war-ravaged Berlin in late 1946. From that devastated and divided city, spies from both sides began to move with relative ease throughout occupied Germany. America and its allies need to determine the composition and deployment locations of the military forces Russia has moved into the very heart of Western Europe. The Russians work diligently to deny the Western Powers knowledge of their intentions and strategies while consolidating their position in their new vassal states in Middle Europe including East Germany; their ultimate goal is to spread communism to the rest of the world.
