BRUNO is a WW2 spy thriller about the search for a Nazi war criminal. I remember it being competent, but nothing special.

Hard to beat the early DESTROYERS.

As much as I like the Sam Durrell series (and generally think Aarons is an underrated writer), I must admit that I've never been able to warm to his non-Assignment books.
