The Crescent Onion
by Val Pattee
Cold War enemies call the shots on terror. The Crescent Onion is a riveting espionage thriller, written with a degree of realism only a top insider could deliver. Val weaves a complex story that could be tomorrow's headline news. Retired CIA operative Jim Buchan is drawn into the center of a maelstrom of threats to international security, with a hearty serving of violent action and human frailty.
