Crossing Darkness

Alexander C. Juden

"The French are our allies, and they say they need you. I do not always trust them, but I believe them on this. Assisting them will support the treaty and peace, and Griffin, the continuation of peace is no sure thing. It sits on a knife's edge, and a nudge could send the world tumbling back to war. Help the French. Convince them we are with them because we need this peace to last. Hell, the whole world needs it."

With these words, Colonel House, advisor to President Woodrow Wilson, launches Great War veteran, John Griffin, on a mission to a post-war Germany in the throes of political and social upheaval.

June 1919. The Treaty of Versailles is nearly complete, and the Bolshevik plot to prevent it was successfully thwarted, but the cost to Griffin was high. Physically wounded and emotionally shattered, he finds that he is trapped by the lies he told the French authorities when saving the very peace that may now cost him everything. Paired with an enigmatic French spy masquerading as his wife, Griffin travels into the heart of a defeated but dangerous Germany. He realizes he is a pawn in a murderous and complicated game that leaves him fighting for his life. He must find a way to escape Germany and the plots that threaten to kill him, while embarking on a quest that his own confused nature has created. As he scrambles to survive, he learns that, sometimes, survival isn't worth the price demanded.
