My friend turned me on to Greg Iles so I picked up 'Black Cross' which is good but this book blows BC out of the water. This book is right up there with Da Vinci Code and the Bourne series as far as i'm concerned. A real page turner indeed. I bet Dan Brown learned a trick or two from this book and Robert Ludlum may have read it as well. If you like to read about spy vs spy vs spy vs spy type novels, this is as good as it gets. I recommend you read 'Black Cross' first though.

Any book on WWII interests me and this ranks among the best WWII stories that I have read.

Different, informative, interesting, and one of the best books I've read. Greg Iles never lets me down.

I made it to page 431 of TFM. I'm already a history nut, but the way the meandering character dialog is used to essentially narrate a catalog of who did what and for what purpose is truly tiresome. I can usually pound through an interesting piece of history with a wee bit of action over the course of a week. I've been picking this up and dropping off for over a month. I'm half way through. The sparks off interest or few and far between. I'm abandoning the effort on this book. Moving on. A waste of my time and money.

I read this book several years ago and it was one I couldn't put down. I love intrigue and the WW2 era. Greg Iles kept me on the edge of my seat and blew me back in my easy chair with the ending. I didn't see it coming! This book is worthy of a second reading. Loved it.

I loved the book, but then I love WWII history. The story moves back and forth between the 1980's and the 1940's. At times it was a bit confusing trying to keep up with all the unfamiliar foreign agencies from the Nazi era, but that didn't detract from the story. I couldn't put it down. It's fact & fiction woven together to tell a thrilling story of what was and what might be. Greg Isles knows how to keep readers interested!

This book was good, as are all of Ile's books. However, the same story could of been just as well told in 200 less pages. It was to long. I actually had to take a break from it and read something else before going back to finish it. Rather than being disappointed when it was over, I was relieved.

This book is great. Perfect for a film o a 2-season series TV show. I learned a lot of Nazi leaders and 2 World War. The only thing I dislike a little is that there are TOO MANY characters, but perhaps, thas was unavoidable. The plot is FULL of action and breath-taking scenes. I fully recommend it.

I would reccomend this book to anyone who has an intrest to World War 2 history. You WONT want to put this book down! So believable, its like stepping back into the past and reliving a secret. A must read!

One thing that I dislike about any book is when the author creates a storyline that makes your head spin and causes you to try to figure out how everything in the story ties together rather than concentrating on the current page. I have to admit that Iles through some of that into the story, however, the plot was original and there were plenty of times when he took the liberty to explain the relationship of the different elements of the story through the characters. Neeless to say, though complicated in some parts, the book had a very intriguing plot which peaked my interest and in the end everything fell nicely together.

this is a really great book.....The ending is obvious,but the rest of the book keeps you guessing right up till the end....Highly recomend this book.

This book was truly gripping. This was Iles' first book, and after reading this one, I have made it a point to read everything he writes. The book was the perfect blend of history and fiction with plenty of plot twists and suspense. It definitely goes on my top 10 list!

I have always thought it funny that my favorite WWII novel was written by an author who does not specialize in this genre. Greg Iles is a great writer and he prooves it here. I have all his books and this is easily my favorite. In my opinion you don't even have to be a history buff or a fan of WWII novels to enjoy this book.
