Death at Nuremberg (Clandestine Operations, #4) Read Online Free -
Assigned to the Nuremberg war trials, special agent James Cronley, Jr., finds himself fighting several wars at once, in the dramatic new Clandestine Operations novel about the birth of the Central Intelligence Agency and the Cold War.When Jim Cronley hears he's just won the Legion of Merit, he figures there's another shoe to drop, and it's a big one: he's out as Chief, DCI-Europe. His new assignments, however, couldn't be bigger: to protect the U.S. chief prosecutor in the Nuremberg trials from a rumored Soviet NKGB kidnapping, and to hunt down and dismantle the infamous Odessa, an organization dedicated to helping Nazi war criminals escape to South America.
It doesn't take long for the first attempt on his life, and then the second. NKGB or Odessa? Who can tell? The deeper he pushes, the more secrets tumble out: a scheme to swap Nazi gold for currency, a religious cult organized around Himmler himself, an NKGB agent who is actually working for the Mossad, a German cousin who turns out to be more malevolent than he appears--and a distractingly attractive newspaperwoman who seems to be asking an awful lot of questions.
Which one will turn out to be the most dangerous? Cronley wishes he knew.

A continuation of the first 3 books in the series about actions in Germany immediately following WW II. The book is an interesting mix of fact and fiction with many segments dramatizing actual historical events which were probably classified for some time. The central character's FREQUENT REPETIT...

SUBJECTIVE READER REVIEW WITH PLOT SPOILERS FOLLOWS:
Though allegedly a figment of Bill Butterworth's imagination, the story of the lead-up to the Trials at Nuremburg was both entertaining and educational. Griffin exposes the naïve masses to Irminism, the solely German spiritual counterpart to Ro...

Awful. If I ever hear someone say his mouth "went on automatic" one more time, I won't be responsible for my actions. And the gentleman who read this audio book was just dreadful. His accents were reminiscent of bad 40's movies. And when his women's voices - simply caricatures. Dreadful. Mr. Grif...

Another good book by W. E. B. Griffen. It starts out slow and then runs downhill as fast as you can read.
Most of the Griffin 's books have been written like this lately, but it still makes them enjoyable and quick reading. This espionage type of book with a sprinkling of sex and humor keeps the r...

I know that Griffin's books follow a basic formula, but they are always a fun read.
Historical fiction with humor and a bit of M*A*S*H irreverence tossed in.
I admit that I often find myself looking up the historical facts in the WW II stories and end up learning by accident.
General Gehlen is a pri...

Finished DEATH AT NUREMBURG (Death at Nuremberg) by W. E. B. Griffin, a loaner from FLP. This is about the search for leaders of the ODESSA, a secret society charged with getting high ranking Nazi's out of harm's way, after WWII. This one only gets four stars because it does not end, it just sort...

Another Great book from Griffin/Butterworth
This book provides us with food for thought about the aftermath of WW II and the possible impact of SS operations after its ending!
Great read with lots of new and old characters throughout the book!
Looking forward to your next written word!

When W.E.B. Griffin was the sole author, his books were great reads. Since joined by son Butterworth, they are very heavy with unnecessary detail and difficult to wade through. As a WWII buff I find the story good but the 'telling' is not nearly as good.
