In the closing days of World War II, Hitler summons SS-General Ernst Streicher to his Berlin bunker to discuss the Third Reich's only hope to win the war – the Wonder Weapons controlled by Himmler's dreaded SS. When an overnight raid by the Allies forces Streicher to abandon his underground Mittelwerk factory assembling V-2 rockets, it sets in motion a monstrous conspiracy that still lies hidden today.
In present-day Vancouver, the RCMP's Special X squad is on the hunt for a pair of Nazi-inspired killers. A Nazi swastika is carved into each victim's forehead.
When Special X turns to the FBI for links to the swastika signature in the United States, the black world of the Pentagon picks up the clue and ties it to the long-kept secret of what crashed at Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947.
Moving between wartime Germany and the manhunt in Vancouver, SWASTIKA revolves around a deadly four-sided cat-and-mouse game embroiling the Mounties, Pentagon hit men, and the Nazi psycho killers.
"CSI: NAZI GERMANY. The attention to detail in SWASTIKA makes for an unsettling read. Slade knows his trade well, and is able to get inside the head of a grizzled cop and a psychotic neo-Nazi with equal skill. Fans won't be disappointed." - Montreal FFWD Weekly
"An action-packed, techno-conspiracy thriller. It is no small testament to Slade's ability that he can craft a genuine emotional core amidst such a maze of plotlines." - Calgary Herald
"A perfect blend of historical background, police procedure, and lightning-fast action, with a dash of horror. Slade's skill at intertwining the past and the present is uncanny. Don't start SWASTIKA unless you can finish it. You won't want to put it down." - Crime Spree Magazine
"Michael Slade has a reputation for conducting extensive research before beginning to write his novels. The scenes in Hitler's bunker and the V-2 rocket factory are so descriptive that it's difficult to know where historical fact leaves off and fiction begins. The story races along like a hound on the scent. SWASTIKA will please anyone who enjoys a good thriller with a historical bent." - Quill & Quire
"Slade blends crime genres like no other writer. SWASTIKA is a clever whodunit that will challenge the sharpest readers." - Hellnotes
