Publisher's Summary

For three years, the Nazis have held France hostage, terrorizing its citizens, and deporting Jews to work camps in the East. A company of brutal SS Panzer troops have taken over the City Hall of Caen and control the heartbeat of the city. Local bands of Resistance fighters operate in the shadows to disrupt, derail, and destroy German operations.
The OSS recruits Nick Jordan, an accomplished Yale athlete, to join an elite commando unit. He and his fellow candidates are put through a year-long training regimen at a covert base learning skills and tradecraft far beyond those of the typical soldier. Their initial mission, Operation Wolfhound, takes them into that German-held territory to seek and kill enemy forces in support of the D-Day invasion. The Nazis have never faced a weapon like Nick Jordan.

Entertaining

A reimagining of the start of the OSS with a college educated James Bond type hero in Nick Jordan. Jordan can be suave when needed...or he can be deadly. Already Yale educated and an elite athlete from a wealthy father who has plans for his son, Nick detours to the OSS to answer his own calling. There, he proves to be a special mix of hero and killer, able to negotiate or cause chaos to achieve his objective.

This story is the first Nick Jordan book and a good beginning to hopefully more stories about this privileged hero who has a heart of gold. In this adventure, Nick and his team are told to cause as much havoc and take out as many Nazi's as they can ahead of the D-day landings. Nick not only plans and executes his own mission, he helps a town liberate itself in the midst of the Normandy onslaught. Jordan also has to work to effectively neutralize an SS officer with a vendetta against the French people.

Patrick Freeman was an excellent narrator who was able to accomplish an authentic sounding southern accent and very good French, German, and English accents in this engaging listen.

I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.
