In MISSION TO MOROCCO, Author J.R. Rogers has put a refreshing new spin on WW2 spy stories.

This authentic and atmospheric tale pits American intelligence agency cohort Lieutenant Sam Bradford against the might of an enemy intent on destroying American Navy blimps patroling the French Moroccan coast and theStraits of Gibraltar.

Lt. Bradford has a worthy adversary in one Colonel Ferdinand Hecht, the SS officer tasked with directing French spies recruited to report on the whereabouts of the navy blimps. Neither man is what he seems: Hecht is posing as a diplomat while Bradford adopts the guise of a war correspondent.

What follows is a fast-moving, gut-wrenching, nail-biting spy story rich in tension and intrigue, and even with a touch of romance. And all in an exotic setting.

If you thought WW2 spy stories have been done to death…think again! MISSION TO MOROCCO is a 5-star must-read.         -Review by Lance Morcan
