Overview

The explosive new thriller of a world that so nearly existed

Africa, 1952. More than a decade has passed since Britain’s humiliation at Dunkirk brought an end to the war and the beginning of an uneasy peace with Hitler.

The swastika flies from the Sahara to the Indian Ocean. Britain and a victorious Nazi Germany have divided the continent. The SS has crushed the native populations and forced them into labor. Gleaming autobahns bisect the jungle, jet fighters patrol the skies. For almost a decade an uneasy peace has ensued.

Now, however, the plans of Walter Hochburg, messianic racist and architect of Nazi Africa, threaten Britain’s ailing colonies.

Sent to curb his ambitions is Burton Cole: a one-time assassin torn between the woman he loves and settling an old score with Hochburg. If he fails unimaginable horrors will be unleashed on the continent. No one – black or white – will be spared.

But when his mission turns to disaster, Burton must flee for his life.

It is a flight that will take him from the unholy ground of Kongo to SS slave camps to war-torn Angola – and finally a conspiracy that leads to the dark heart of The Afrika Reich itself.

I always enjoy a good Alt history novel. The what ifs of decisions that could have changed the world of today. One of the best from WWII is Hitler halting the panzers & letting the Luftwaffe attack Dunkirk. So here he didn't & Halifax becomes PM. The characters are good the action intense. And you don't know what happens next. So I have to say a good read.

I read some outstanding reviews of this book. Ordered it from B&N. they cancelled my order without telling me. So I don't know if it's any good or not. Plus, while I was on hold the phone for so long, trying to get a replacement for the gift card I had plenty of time to order another book from Amazon. Never again B&N. You're the worst.
