Detritus relates the plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler in 1944 by an American Army officer, Hayden Brooke. At the time of the attempt, Brooke is married to Sarah, a peace activist whose father is an anti-war philosopher. Hayden and Sarah are separated physically and emotionally by the war. Top-secret truce negotiations developing between Germany and Great Britain, including planned release of all concentration camp inmates, are threatened by discovery of the plot. Brooke and his best friend are imperiled by that leak and cooperate to carry out the plot. After 62 years of required secrecy until Brooke's death in 2006, the plot, its planning and execution, the military-political consequences, and the detrital effects on private lives can now be revealed.
