From the Publisher

“A swift historical thriller of such brutal accomplishment that it vaporizes almost every cliché about the limits of the genre...good enough to read twice”—Kirkus Reviews Booklist “Like a Swiss watch wired to a bundle of dynamite; impeccable craftsmanship tick-tocking inexorably to an explosive climax. A wonderful mingling of technology, suspense, and character, and a fine exploration of the true nature of patriotism.”—Diana Gabaldon, author of Voyager and Outlander

“…Vital, compelling, magnificent...It has everything—danger, suspense, intrigue, romance, and chills…Characters so finely drawn it is impossible to believe they are fiction…Greg Iles is a major talent, a force to be reckoned with.”—Romantic Times

“Henceforth, any recommended reading list of thrillers will have to include this…Action-packed yet thoughtful, unusually resonant and gripping, swift and moving…A strong bestseller bet.”—Publishers Weekly

“A wonderful thriller…Absolutely remarkable…One of the most exciting action stories ever written…Filled with derring-do.”—Mystery News

A great novel set against the backdrop of WW 2. The story is aptly described in other reviews, so I'll use my review to laud Iles as a unique author who can weave wonderful stories across different genres. Check out The Footprints of God, Blood Memory, Dead Sleep as evidence and Spandau Phoenix to return to the Nazi theme.

I enjoy all of Greg's books and this one did not disappoint I would recommend to anyone who likes historical fiction. The plot while fiction has a terrifying ring of truth to it.

I got this book for my husband who loves it. When he finished it he said i HAD to read it. I was pretty skeptical at first, thinking its not my style of reading or whatever. But man was i wrong. This book pulls you in through its amazing story, and continues to pull and pull until your nearing the end and cant put it down. The characters have real feelings and emotions that play out into real people during a time period where many people were emotionless and turned their head the other way. I am now sending this book to my dad to read and recommending it to just about everyone i know. There is a lot of information to take in so it feels like you've been reading forever, but its definitely worth it.

I've read several other Greg Iles books and have always previously enjoyed the twists they take.. This book was an good read.. It just didn't have the same suspense level I'd come to expect. Liked very much the opening into the story and expected more back and forth during the story which never happened, so that was a litle disappointing.

Spandau Phoenix, Black Cross and Blood Memory....absolute must-reads....they're so good, you'll go back and re-read them after several years...I did.

This is an excellent book. It took a bit to read it but was worth the time and effort I spent to get through it. It really made me stop and think all the way through. I had to remember history and then remind myself that it really was a book and then I had to convince myself that it really could be that way! It was hard to put down because of all the details involved. Excellent book!

Perhaps the best ww ii novel I have ever read! A diverse and complex set of characters are made very real. Brings to life the cruelty of the camps like nothing I've ever read.

Historical yes, and not normally my cup of tea. But I adore Greg Iles stories with the depth of real people, strengths and faults alike. Spoiler Alert: Everyone loves a Happy Ending.
