Overview

Un grande thriller di Paul Christopher

Un'indagine del tenente colonnello John Holliday

L'arma più letale è la verità

Il tenente colonnello John Holliday ha abbandonato la carriera militare per dedicarsi all’insegnamento presso la prestigiosa Accademia di West Point, dove vengono formati i futuri ufficiali dell’esercito statunitense. Appassionato di storia, Holliday è cresciuto con lo zio Henry, professore universitario ed esperto medievalista, che gli ha trasmesso l’amore per gli antichi cimeli e gli enigmi del passato. Dopo la morte dello zio, Holliday eredita la sua villa newyorchese, insieme alla cugina di secondo grado Peggy Blackstock, giovane e attraente fotoreporter. Ma durante la prima visita alla dimora abbandonata i due cugini si rendono conto di trovarsi davanti a qualcosa di più di semplici collezioni di armi e oggetti antichi: un’antica spada avvolta nello stendardo di Hitler spunta da un cassetto e nell’ufficio dello zio scoprono un’inquietante fotografia che lo ritrae a Berghof, la residenza estiva del Führer. Quale segreto custodiva Henry? E perché, solo qualche giorno dopo la sua morte, la grande casa vittoriana viene data alle fiamme per mano di ignoti? Seguendo le tracce di una misteriosa iscrizione sulla spada, Holliday e Peggy cominceranno a indagare: un viaggio denso di pericoli che li porterà da Oxford alla Germania nazista, dalle rovine di un castello crociato ai vicoli bui di Gerusalemme, a caccia di un segreto che da millenni qualcuno custodisce gelosamente…
