In the first weeks after World War II, James D. Cronley Jr. is recruited for a new enterprise that will eventually be transformed into something called the CIA. For a new war has already begun, against an enemy that is bigger, smarter, and more vicious: the Soviet Union. The Soviets have hit the ground running, and Cronley's job is to help frustrate them, harass them, and spy on them in any way he can. But his first assignment might be his last. He's got only seven days to extract a vital piece of information from a Soviet agent, and he's already managed to rile up his superior officers. If he fails now, his intelligence career could be the shortest in history. There are enemies everywhere - and, as Cronley is about to find our, some of them wear the same uniform he does...

I have read a lot of WEB Griffin books including a later Clandestine Operations Novel. They are interesting and enjoyable. Griffin (Butterworth etal) writes fascinating books that are fun to read. I don't care if they are drinking whiskey and eating good food. It is not a major portion of the book.

More of the same from this author. Wealthy people travelling from place to place, eating fine meals and drinking expensive whiskey. If the writer truly believes that this the way the Counter Intelligence Corp operated then he needs to devote more time to research.
