The next book in the acclaimed Cormack and Woodward series, set during the Berlin Blockade of 1948, which has sometimes been described as the Cuban Missile Crisis of the 1940s, where a highly volatile situation could easily have developed into a full-blown conflict. Cormack arrives in Berlin to take over a new post as the head of a counter-intelligence unit whose job is both to detect Soviet agents and to deal with Black Market activity. He is soon re-united with his old friend Woodward, who is involved in the Airlift, and the two find themselves in the middle of an undercover operation in which an ex-Nazi assassin has been smuggled into Berlin. But who has he been sent to kill, and why? Their investigations lead them into discovering the shadowy outlines of a conspiracy whose plans, if successful, could lead to millions of deaths… and some of the conspirators seem to be their own superiors. Not knowing whom they can trust, Cormack and Woodward somehow have to prevent the assassination taking place. They do not even know who the victim is to be, nor where or when it is to happen, but the price of failure is World War Three…

About the Author

James Baddock has had six thrillers published in the UK, USA and Canada. Reactions to these have included being described as ‘leading the pack in suspense mystery’ by Clive Cussler, and having ‘much in common with Jack Higgins’ by the Daily Express. His books are all very much fast paced espionage thrillers, with the emphasis on action, although characters are given space to grow and develop; indeed, one of his priorities is to avoid stereotypes and to let their strengths and weaknesses emerge as the story unfolds, especially in terms of how they behave when under extreme pressure. Five of these books (The Dutch Caper, Emerald, Piccolo, The Alaska Project and The Faust Conspiracy) are now being published as ebooks, along with two brand new titles (Berlin Endgame and Servants Of The State). During a previous life, James taught English and Media Studies at several Secondary and Upper Schools, but still found time to gain an Honours Degree in English Literature and a Masters Degree in Media, Culture and Communications. His interests include reading, rock music, films and Tottenham Hotspur (not necessarily in that order).
