What If Hitler Had Actually WON World War II...?
Failing to enter World War II in time to help the Allies defeat the advancing German forces, the U.S. tragically allows Hitler's brutal empire to rise and rule the world. After years of oppression and systematic genocide, a rebellious faction of Hitler detractors hatches a plot to go back in time and alter the course of future history. Their main objective? To draw the U.S. into WWII, thereby aborting Hitler's sinister plans before they even have the chance to be born. The unlikely key to their success? Joe January, a fast-talking private investigator who stumbles upon the plot while in the process of tracking down a missing Archeology professor who holds a potentially earth-shattering secret...Was this review helpful?

One Hot January is nothing if not intriguing. In his thought-provoking tale of speculative fiction, author J. Conrad Guest skillfully combines dramatic fiction with historical fact to present a winding, suspense-filled mystery thriller. Driving the story along is the unflappable Joe January, who - despite finding himself thrust in the midst of a time-traveling conspiracy theory come to vivid life - remains the quintessential cool, sardonic hard ass with a heart of gold. As such, his unique energy alone is sure to captivate the reader's interest as Guest unfolds his action-packed tale at a steady, compelling pace - all the way up to the bombshell surprise ending. A dynamic, highly recommended instant classic.
