The Italian Connection
By: Mark Hyde
About the Book
Set in 1953, The Italian Connection follows our protagonist Jack Dewey, gentleman thief, amateur racer, and WWII veteran, as he is reluctantly recruited by the CIA to take on secret missions in Italy and southern Europe. During one such mission, in which Dewey must tail a rogue Soviet General, he crosses paths with the mysterious Natalina Scherbina, a Soviet assassin who recently tried (and failed) to kill him. Begrudgingly, the two agree to work together, and the former enemies begin to uncover a deeper conspiracy involving the rogue General, the Italian Mafia, and a former Nazi with nebulous ambitions for Europe.
