Highly experienced in reconnaissance and stealth the undercover operatives rely on spy craft and cunning to track the FTM fugitives into the most unforgiving locations for challenging extractions, defying all odds of detection.

A conspiracy is uncovered between the Vatican and the Mexican government which threatens U.S. border security resulting in a familial Federal Police Investigator's brutal murder coldly avenged at the highest level of legal authority.

The Shadow Spreads The Time of Troubles had almost passed. The chaos of spilled blood, lawless strife, monsters unleashed, and avatars roaming Faerûn was reaching an end. However, not so Those Who Walk in Shadow. The dreaded and insidious Shadowmasters realize that they have one last chance to seize control while chaos wrecks havoc on all of the Realms, and in doing so seal the fate of not just their archenemy Elminster, but all of Mystra's minions as well. Darkness threatens to envelop all Faerûn. The shadows loom.
This is the fascinating story of how Nazi war criminals escaped from justice at the end of the Second World War by fleeing through the Tyrolean Alps to Italian seaports, and the role played by the Red Cross, the Vatican, and the Secret Services of the major powers in smuggling them away from prosecution in Europe to a new life in South America. The Nazi sympathies held by groups and individuals within these organizations evolved into a successful assistance network for fugitive criminals, providing them not only with secret escape routes but hiding places for their loot. Gerald Steinacher skillfully traces the complex escape stories of some of the most prominent Nazi war criminals, including Adolf Eichmann, showing how they mingled and blended with thousands of technically stateless or displaced persons, all flooding across the Alps to Italy and from there, to destinations abroad. The story of their escape shows clearly just how difficult the apprehending of war criminals can be. As Steinacher shows, all the major countries in the post-war world had 'mixed motives' for their actions, ranging from the shortage of trained intelligence personnel in the immediate aftermath of the war to the emerging East-West confrontation after 1947, which led to many former Nazis being recruited as agents turned in the Cold War.

We are now are own elders, as we must forget about your own personal platitudes whereas sometimes some lights that shines twice as bright, burns half as long, as sometimes we all tend to shine ever so brightly. For one moment, have you ever possibly & conceivably considered your way of thinking about the world is totally wrong. The main problem we all are facing is that so much research is based upon biases & personal opinions, and not pure research. This writer submits that a person or persons can never clam be a true intellectual unless they void themselves of personal perfidiousness & only concentrate on the true facts or fruits of pure research. For what is intellect without deductive & constructive reasoning, & not from personal prospectives, but from the collective facts as presented. For example; when I open a door & describe what’s on the other side may be much different than another, When in fact, what’s on the other side of the door, is what’s on the other side of the door. The truth is, what ever is on the other side of that door, Is just that, does that make sense? When you assume, To a degree and for a moment, you always convey & show your ignorance in anything that you care to assume for a fraction of a second. As some relative assumptions may seem more creditable in the areas of intellect & reasoning, others are blind arrogance & opportunism coupled with the instincts to naturally & progressively inquire.
