is the sequel to OP-DEC: Operation Deceit (2nd edition out March 16!) is in the writing process.
Here’s a tidbit to get you excited:
“Is Fox really a Jerry Kraut?” the boy asked after a long pause.
“We believe he is.”
The kid was made miserable by this. His dark eyes swam in tears, as his hero was torn to shreds in one swipe.
“And I delivered for em,” the boy mumbled. “He can’t be no Jerry Kraut. I don’t believe it.”
“That’s his game, kid. He makes people believe, so he can get their secrets.”
The boy glowered over his nose, puffing the last of the cigarette.
“Losing your heroes is part of growing up—It’s so you can be one yourself. Understand?” Jimmy said.
Proctor returned to him with an old rumpled envelope. Nothing was inside but a slip of paper bearing the address of the warehouse in Brooklyn. That at least tied Adler to the ring, though it said nothing of how he was connected. Jimmy gestured for his partner to keep going. Then, he looked to the boy, holding up the envelope.
“I’m sorry, kid.”
“He ain’t no Jerry Kraut,” the boy insisted.
