A new President, a wounded ally and little time. It is going to be a busy day.

"The Specialists: At Any Cost," the premier book of a new series. The books can be read as stand-alone stories, but it is advised to read them in order to get the most enjoyment from the series.

The Normandy invasion failed. Hitler was assassinated. Russia betrayed the Allies. Dewey defeated Roosevelt. Germany did not lose the war. The war ended in stalemate.

Welcome to the world of "The Specialists."

"The Specialists" is a series set in a world of politics, spies and war where history took a different path.

"The Specialists: At Any Cost": C.I.A. Director of Operations Robert MacGregor and his elite Specialist unit are tasked with smuggling a wounded operative out of France before he is captured and unravels an underground network in France and Germany fighting against the Third Reich of the 21st century.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice unusual slant. 9 Dec 2013
By Wanda - Published on Amazon.com

I really liked the fact that this was written with an alternate history at it's core.

It gave the story a slant that is all but usual.

This book however served more to introduce characters and the alternate history part that attracted me was a bit glossed over.

Still a good read for sure and an entertaining one. What more do you need?

3.0 out of 5 stars a nice hour read 20 Oct 2013

If your are looking for a quick old school spy game with a little political maneuvering, this one is for you. Not to heavy on action, more motivations and strategic positioning. But well written.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent spy story with an alternative history twist. 17 April 2014
By Guy with Beard - Published on Amazon.com

There is a group of elite operatives in the CIA. They have to go into potentially hostile territory to try and retrieve an ally after his cover has been blown.

This short story had a lot of work to do. It serves as an introduction to a new series, so it needed to present the main characters and show their world. It has the feel of an old World War II spy novel but set in modern day. That is because the war didn't quite go like it did in our world. Germany didn't lose. There was an armistice. So France is a puppet of the Nazis, Russia is still a Soviet State, and of course Germany is run by the Reich still. It makes for some interesting changes in politics.

The problem is that the reader doesn't get a lot of information about those changes in the story. I got most of the details from the description of the book. There were bits and pieces in the story but if I had not been aware it was an alternative history story before reading it, I would have felt lost.

Overall, I would still recommend this story. I look forward to seeing the world explored more and to find out more about the characters.
