Crete, 1942. Capt. Roger Thomas's mission was to hold the Nazi forces on the ancient island at bay-in readiness for the Allied invasion that never came. Now Bill Thomas has returned to seek the truth about his father's death-and about the German spy named Theseus. But it is in a forgotten diary that he discovers a bloody secret, so explosive that powerful international intelligence forces are at work to see that it never comes to light. If they fail, the world will be shaken to the core and the history of World War II completely rewritten.
