Rosenheim, Andrew, The Accidental Agent

The spellbinding conclusion to the Jimmy Nessheim trilogy, by the author of Fear Itself
It’s the fall of 1942 and Special Agent Jimmy Nessheim is a student again, even though America is at war. On extended leave from the FBI, he’s enrolled in law school at the University of Chicago. Ostensibly a full-time student, Nessheim has also been assigned to assist the military security guarding a scientific program called the Manhattan Project. In Chicago, its work takes place underneath the stands of Stagg Field, the university’s unused football stadium. Drawn once again into a web of international intrigue, Nessheim faces his most deadly threat yet.
