A real life Raiders of
the Lost Ark. An American art historian turned Army sleuth races to stay
one step ahead of Nazi thugs who have absconded with the Crown Jewels of the
Holy Roman Empire—sacred symbols of Hitler’s “Thousand Year Reich”—and their
plot to create a Fourth Reich.
Had Hitler succeeded in conquering Europe, he would have
crowned himself Holy Roman Emperor. The Nazis had in their possession priceless
artifacts that would give Hitler legitimacy in his subjects’ eyes: the Crown
Jewels of the Holy Roman Empire including the Spear of Destiny, alleged to have
pierced Christ’s side at the Crucifixion. Looted from the royal treasury in
Vienna, Austria, the Crown Jewels were hidden in a secret bunker deep beneath
Nürnberg castle, known to few but Heinrich Himmler, his staff—and a captured
German soldier whose family lived above it. As luck would have it, the officer
in charge of interrogating the soldier was First Lieutenant Walter Horn, art
history professor. Following his report to General Patton, Horn would be
assigned to recover this ancient treasure. Would he find it before covert Nazi
agents could use it to revive the defeated regime?
Based on recently discovered and previously unpublished
documents and interviews with all remaining living participants, this is a tale
that surpasses fiction: part thriller, part detective story, all true. Download and start listening now!
