In 1942, German U-boats prowled the Atlantic, sinking hundreds of U.S. ships along the East Coast, including the largest cruise ship in the world, Normandie, destroyed at a Manhattan pier after Pearl Harbour. Desperate to secure the coast, the Navy asked for help from Jewish mob boss Meyer Lansky. He eagerly formed 'the Ferret Squad', an unlikely fellowship of mobsters and naval intelligence officers. Together, they worked to catch Nazi saboteurs and lay the groundwork for Patton's invasion of Sicily. In the spirit of Kevin Baker and James Ellroy, "The Devil Himself" is a high-energy novel of military espionage and mafia justice.
