Adam Wolfe, heir to an industrial fortune, abandons college to defend the Catholic Church in the Spanish Civil War. He escapes the ennui of Depression-era America to find something—though he’s not sure what.
Mike Barnes is the ex-mob enforcer turned FBI agent sent to find him. Held hostage by his past, the Wolfe case gives him an opportunity to turn a new leaf on his past.
Amid the battle between the proxies of fascism and international Communism, Wolfe and Barnes uncover a web of spies, gunrunning, and organized crime that crosses both sides of the war—and the Atlantic.
