Top Secret (Clandestine Operations, Bk 1)
Top Secret - Clandestine Operations, Bk 1 Author:W. E. B. Griffin In the first weeks after World War II, a squeaky-clean new second lieutenant named James D. Cronley Jr. is spotted and recruited for a new enterprise that will eventually be transformed into something called the CIA. One war may have ended, but another one has already begun, against an enemy that is bigger, smarter, and more vicious: the Soviet ... more »Union.
The Soviets have hit the ground running, and Cronley’s job is to help frustrate them, harass them, and spy on them any way he can. His recruiter thinks he has the potential to become an asset -- though, of course, he could also screw up spectacularly. And in his first assignment, it looks like that’s exactly what might happen. He’s got seven days to extract a vital piece of information from a Soviet agent, but Cronley’s managed to rile up his superior officers (he seems to have a talent for it), and if he fails, it could be one of the shortest intelligence careers in history.
There are enemies everywhere -- and, as Cronley is about to find out, some of them even wear the same uniform he does.« less

Lynn D. reviewed Top Secret (Clandestine Operations, Bk 1) on
If I hadnt won a copy of this book thru GoodReads.com this is NOT the type of book I would have ever picked to read. To my total amazement and enjoyment I truly enjoyed reading this adventure. The characters were interesting, good in the places they were at in the book, the plot more then carefully plotted and I learned a lot about the Cold War that really started before WWII ended. It seemed like a whole complete book to me that could and can be read individually! I enjoyed the authors preface, gave a GREAT idea of what the book might contain and his notes in the back about some of the major players in the book! A truly satisfying read that I enjoyed immensely!
