Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is twenty years after Nazi Germany's triumphant victory in World War II and the entire country is preparing for the grand celebration of the Führer's seventy-fifth birthday, as well as the imminent peacemaking visit from President Kennedy

Meanwhile, Berlin Detective Xavier March — a disillusioned but talented investigation of a corpse washed up on the shore of a lake. When a dead man turns out to be a high-ranking Nazi commander, the Gestapo orders March off the case immediately. Suddenly other unrelated deaths are anything but routine.

Now obsessed by the case, March teams up with a beautiful, young American journalist and starts asking questions...dangerous questions. What they uncover is a terrifying and long-concealed conspiracy of such astonding and mind-numbing terror that is it certain to spell the end of the Third Reich — if they can live long enough to tell the world about it.

Review:

"Harris, author of the nonfiction title Selling Hitler ...is clearly well versed in the operations and machinations of the Nazi regime. He uses this knowledge to create a realistic and frightening world in which we all could be living." Library Journal

Review:

"An eerie, detailed alternate history serves as the backdrop for this otherwise conventional crime thriller....The characters are flat and the plot largely predictable. And readers may well question the taste of using the Holocaust as the point of departure for a rather insubstantial, derivative thriller." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"There are no happy novels set in Berlin, but Harris...has managed a novel that dances on Hitler's grave with amusing success." Kirkus Reviews
