At a time when fiction can be formulaic and utterly predictable, The Berlin Triangle stands out. Despite the surprising turns of its plot, its characters seem very real to me. In particular the main character, the refugee from East Berlin, was completely believable, and his non-Western world was well sketched. Generally, in reading a book, I find that within a few chapters I know exactly where the story is going, but this book caught me off guard. The style, also, I found to be better than the colorless plodding we see so often these days, and carried me along so swiftly that I found I had read over half the novel in one sitting, finishing the whole book in two or three days. I was not bored through any of it, either. Though I'm no historian and don't know much about Hitler's associations with other famous (or notorious) people of his time, the connection between him and Tesla is very intriguing, and makes for interesting reading. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys something different, something that makes you think.

Few novels combine action with poetry as does The Berlin Triangle! Magnificent! I literally could not put the book down. The Berlin Triangle painting is a poetic image around which all action and poetry are strangely alive. This novel is very, very skillfully crafted. It is my guess it has a very 'thin gloss of fiction' over a myriad of countless and welcome facts on Hitler's real plans and Tesla's hidden WWII agenda. The rear cover reads: 'The Berlin Triangle is a mini-epic of historical and literary fiction! Written just one-half block from the Berlin Wall, in the British sector of West Berlin, it truthfully reveals many things the history books will never tell you!' I wholeheartedly agree! I am going to make a prediction and we'll see if I'm right: I believe Tom Hanks will play Holger Dallmann, Heath Ledger will play Ariel Goldman, and Sean Connery will easily be Uncle Walter.
