Popular legend has made the false flag operation out to be a skilled and menacing ploy with cunning German spies speaking American English. Their commander, propaganda hero SS Lt. Col. Otto Skorzeny, seemed a mastermind. But the reality was much different, and all the more deadly. The planning and training were slapdash, the mission desperate, its chances slim to none. Sitting Ducks is a fast read equaling about 49 print pages.
On the surface, Greg Simmons seems an utterly improbable informant. He’s an idealistic, Cascadia independence proponent from the city of Portland. When the FBI calls on Greg to go undercover to investigate a dangerous militia movement out in rural Oregon, he knows exactly why: his long-estranged friend from the country, Donny Wilkie, could have deep ties to the militia.
Greg doesn’t want the FBI’s help. He needs to pursue the threat all on his own, because his true motives run far deepermaking sure that his former friend will never reveal a damning secret from their past. Greg strikes out for the remote small town of Pineburg, a fish out of water. As he grapples with his and Donny’s relationship and why it soured, as the threats to his worldview and to hiding the grim truth darken and mount, he discovers that no one is really who they seem, least of all himself. The dark misdeeds that both he and Donny covered up for so long threaten to reap their toll in the most deadly way.

Einer populären Legende zufolge war dieses Unternehmen unter falscher Flagge ein sorgfältig vorbereitetes und gefährliches Komplott, ausgeführt von deutschen Agenten, die amerikanisches Englisch sprachen. Ihr Kommandeur, der Propaganda-Kriegsheld und SS-Obersturmbannführer Otto Skorzeny, spielt darin die Rolle des brillanten Kopfs der Mission. Die Wirklichkeit war jedoch ganz anders und noch viel tödlicher. Planung und Ausbildung waren notdürftig und unzureichend, der Einsatz verzweifelt und die Erfolgsaussichten äußerst gering.
