U.S. Army private Ben Bartel's goal is to gain experience playing on a battalion basketball team and when his two-year tour of duty is up to try to land a college scholarship. Instead, a chance encounter in a London train station propels him into a dangerous 1950s Cold War spy drama that has he and basketball teammate Ed Akers fighting for their lives in England and West Germany against English Teddy Boys and assassins from the Soviet Union.
The genius of DOUBLE TEAM TRAP is its recreation of Cold War Europe from the viewpoint of an American GI. Clear, evocative prose places the reader onsite, conjuring characters, scenery, and political intrigue of the post-war era. Author Jim McLain understands how to close a chapter in a way that tempts the reader to turn the next page. He draws on his own real-life experience to bring this tale to the page and to life in the reader's imagination.
