Listener Opinions

    " 3.5 STARS - This isn't my type of book (I'm not a huge fan of non-fiction, but it really depends on the subject matter), however, my son is interested in WWII/Hitler history so I read this aloud to him. It was quite detailed and in-depth and it told a story I was totally unfamiliar with so it proved to be rather interesting. Recommended for people who enjoy non-fiction and/or WWII/Nazi history. "

    " About half way through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Flanagan | 2/4/2014

    " What a gem of a book. It always amazes the stories which are still to this day coming out about World War II. This book follows the search for lost treasure and in doing so gives us a view of the top Nazis beliefs. I consider mysel a WWII buff and this book gave me a fresh view of many areas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 1/5/2014

    " This is a real life detective story involving art, jewels, nazis, and the attempt to build a new nazi religion. I learned more about the real going's on of the nazi regime from this book than I have learned from any other source. Read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Drew | 1/3/2014

    " I thought it would be more Indian Jone-ish. Interesting story on the recovery of crown jewels of the Holy Roman Empire. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonya | 12/11/2013

    " Great book! It was especially appealing to me since I love medieval history and this work tied into that period alot. Very convincing as it was supposed to be based on what really happened. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 11/9/2013

    " I was expecting a rather dry non-fiction book, but was pleasantly surprised with the action here. I found the history itself interesting, as well as tracing down the relics. A little National Treasure, a little Indiana Jones, a lot of history.....fascinating read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 9/16/2013

    " Interesting story of the search for stolen Nazi treasure in post WW2 Germany... in this case, the crown jewels of the Holy Roman Empire. Lots of speculation and an odd way of telling the story detract from the effectiveness of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristjan | 7/21/2013

    " The story flies when Lieutenant Horn is interviewing suspects, but slows down a lot when the history behind the Crown Jewels is being traced. Borderline 3 stars, but the subject matter is fascinating enough to pull it up to 4. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 6/8/2013

    " An interesting historical detective story about a Berkeley professor's tracking down the theft of the Holy Roman Empire's crown jewels in the summer of 1945 and the likely plans Hitler and Himmler had for them. A very enjoyable book to read once you get to where the plot thickens. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stone | 5/13/2013

    " Very enjoyable true tale of the recovery of the Crown Jewels of the Holy Roman Empire from the Nazis in the final days of World War 2... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abbie | 1/2/2013

    " This was a well researched account of the investigation of the Holy Relics that was stolen by Hitler during the World War II. You'll be fascinated on how the author brings you to a world where chaos is everywhere, people are telling lies and a job that is not that easy to accomplish. Great book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim Smith | 12/23/2012

    " Not as exciting of a book as I thought it would be. Not sure what it was, maybe the voice of the guy doing the audiobook being too mono tone is what lead to the bordom. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanne | 9/17/2012

    " Described as an Indiana Jones adventure in reviews. Minus the horse-riding, gun-toting, whip-cracking action, this is a riveting read. Hitler stole the crown jewels of the Holy Roman Empire to be crowned emperor. Now there's a scary thought. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yancy | 5/2/2012

    " Absolutely fascinating, real-life story of amateur army detective, Walter Horn, who was assigned to find the stolen relics of the Holy Roman Empire in post-WWII Germany. Mystical religious history, Nazis, mystery, war, history...a great read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaime | 5/1/2012

    " This book moves very slowly and then picks up after the first 80 pages. The problem is that the author gets bogged down in too much background. the middle part of the book is the best because legends, myths and history are woven together in a solid blend. In the ned, it was an enjoyable book. "
