Max Volcker may have been born in Kaiserslautern, but his heart is back home in Brooklyn. His name is carved underneath a seat at Ebbets Field, his last school assignment is still in his locker at Brooklyn Tech and his Bushwick boyfriend is serving on a U.S. Navy battleship in the Pacific. Forcibly deported to Germany after his family was mistaken for Nazi agents, Max will do anything to get back to America, but driving a Wehrmacht officer around German-held France doesn’t offer many opportunities to escape. That is, until a French Resistance bomb takes out Max’s employer and breaks the lock on the officer’s steel-reinforced briefcase full of forged passports, papers and counterfeit cash.
When Max appropriates the identity of the officer–a crack Nazi intelligence agent known as “the Specter”–he decides he’ll work secretly for the Allies as a mole, and when the war ends they’ll reward him with U.S. citizenship and a ticket back to New York. But there’s just one catch: the Allies don’t know Max is a double agent. He must convince them of his sincerity while pretending fealty to Hitler’s goons and staying one step ahead of everyone who ever saw the real Specter in person. Considering Max is only 20 and has no intelligence training, that’s a tall order. Now he’d better become an expert in high-level espionage, and fast–before his blunders lose World War II for the good guys!.
