Overview

1942.

The war hangs in the balance.

But Nazi Germany may soon have a weapon to tip the scale.

Germany, 1942. When Hitler's leading nuclear physicists hesitate to develop an atom bomb, SS officer Max Heldorf conceives of an ingenious plan. But only one physicist can solve the formidable scientific problems essential for success: Hannah Goldmann, who is facing death in an extermination camp.

Denmark, 1942. As Jørgen Sørensen's Resistance cell progresses from acts of sabotage to planning one of the most spectacular Resistance operations of World War II - the rescue of all of Denmark's Jews - he realizes there is a traitor in their midst.

New York, 1942. The American secret service recruits WAAC Christina Lindgren for intelligence work in Sweden. On a return mission, Christina finds herself trapped with a vital message - and an unknown stranger.

And what is the terrible secret of Mørkø, a hitherto deserted island halfway between Denmark and Sweden? Only two people outside the island have any idea: Reichminister Albert Speer and Peder, an autistic ten-year-old Danish boy who is unable to tell what he has seen.

The Devil's Alchemists interweaves these stories against a backdrop of history as it races to a stunning, unforgettable climax.
