Nat Turnbull, a history professor who specializes in the German resistance, is only mildly surprised when his estranged mentor, Gordon Wolfe, is arrested for possession of stolen World War II archives. But what's in the archives is staggering: a spymaster's trove missing since the end of the war, one that Gordon has always claimed is full of secrets you can't find anywhere else...Live ammunition.

Key documents are still missing, however, and Nat believes Gordon has hidden them. The FBI agrees, and when Gordon is then found dead in jail, the Bureau dispatches Nat to track down the material, which has also caught the interest of several dangerous competitors. Following a trail of cryptic clues left behind by Gordon, and assisted by an attractive German academic with questionable motives, Nat's quest takes him to Bern and Berlin. His path soon crosses that of Kurt Bauer, an aging German arms merchant still hoarding his own wartime secrets. As their tales - and Gordon's - intersect across half a century, long-buried exploits of deceit, devotion and doomed resistance begin working their way to the surface. As the stakes rise, so do the risks.

Here is Dan Fesperman's most thrilling, unexpected, and satisfying novel yet. Download and start listening now!

    " I dug this book but felt it kind of petered out at the end. Still will be reading more of his books. He presented the story and the characters deftly and nothing felt like a cheap ploy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Norris Battin | 2/16/2014

    " I am a WWII spy-thriller geek, especially those set in Europe with lots of bad Nazis and good OSS types. I particularly liked the Bonhoeffer background as I am about to begin a recent biography of the pastor. "

    " A fine read. I don't usually read thrillers, especially ones about Nazi Germany, but this one was fun. The protagonist, a contemporary historian, was unusual and appealing. His search was for the truth about his mentor, not stolen art or gold. The relationships and plot avoided the usual cliches and offered only necessary glimpses of the grim brutality that was Germany during WW II. Good settings, history that went down easily, a sense of authenticity. Some nice prose as well. "

    " An excellent read. Bounces back and forth between Bern, Berlin and the US East Coast while switching back and forth from modern day to Workd War II. An American history prof tries to unravel a WWII Mystery involving a recently deceased colleague and mentor who worked for Allen Dulles in the OSS during the war. Some good history on the White Rose movement and an interetsing look at Switzerland during the war but also a very emotional book. "
