Publisher's Summary

The Fifth Column is a thrilling novel about the only man who can thwart a Nazi sympathiser uprising in New York during the Second World War, from best-selling author Andrew Gross.

A Man in Trouble 

February 1939, and Europe is on the brink of war. Charles Mossman is in a bar in Hell’s Kitchen, New York, reeling from the loss of his job and his failing marriage, whilst outside thousands of Nazi sympathisers are attending a hate-spewing rally. As he confronts one, Charles makes a horrendous mistake with deadly consequences.

A City of Secrets 

Two years later, Charles is released from prison and tries to reunite with his family. The US has kept out of the war for now, but the pressure in the city is rising as those sympathetic to the Nazi cause lay the foundations for what lies ahead.

The Enemy Within 

As he tries to make amends with his wife and daughter, Charles starts to understand that surrounding them there are forces that will use any means necessary to bring about the downfall of his nation. And when his daughter is befriended by a seemingly amiable Swiss couple, it brings to the surface his fears of a 'Fifth Column' of embedded German spies in their new neighbourhood. All Charles wants is to redeem himself as a husband and father, but sometimes a man must do questionable things to stand up for his family and what he believes, even sacrificing his life to do so....
