Description
"In the years preceding the U.S. entry into WWII, Germany had set up a sophisticated and productive espionage ring, effectively utilizing well-placed German Americans. They were able to infiltrate key military and industrial facilities, and succeeded in obtaining critical information, including plans for the Norden bombsight. When William Sebold left New York City in 1939 to visit family in his native Germany, he seemed a logical target for recruitment by German intelligence officers. Threatened with arrest, Sebold seemingly agreed to work for the Germans when he returned to the U.S. But they woefully misjudged Sebold, who was a tough, hot-tempered 40-year-old who viewed his oath upon taking American citizenship as sacred. Returning to New York, he contacted the FBI and agreed to work as a double agent. Over the next two years he was instrumental in breaking up German spy rings and helping convict 33 agents. [Peter] Duffy, a freelance journalist, tracks Sebold's efforts with a tense, exciting narrative filled with a motley collection of characters, some sinister and some unlikely as villains. This has all the elements of a fine spy novel, with the bonus that it is all true."Booklist
