Knoerle’s ace thriller, the third in the American Spy series, chronicles a noirish tough guy’s efforts to protect the world from the Red Menace, circa 1948.
Knoerle hits precisely the right note of humility and bravado when his protagonist, American Office of Strategic Services' agent Hal Schroeder, declares in the novel’s prologue: “You wouldn’t believe how much crap you get credit for when you’re a hero.”
What follows is a spare, stylish thriller peopled with wisecracking characters straight out of a Billy Wilder flick.
