When university professor Robert Branch learns of the death of his best friend, he knows that it couldn’t have been suicide. The murder was arranged by a Nazi espionage group operating on campus. He also knows that the Nazis will have him eliminated, too, as soon as it is convenient. He’s even narrowed his choice of executioner down to three: a psychotic homosexual, a respected educator—and the woman he loves. The only trouble is, no one will believe him.

    " Good, especially for a first novel. It was written in the early 40s and is about Nazis and a professor in the U.S. "

    " OK, so make this a 3.5 star read. Again, Ross MacD is old -- somewhere around the time of Richard Prather's Shell Scott mysteries, but I'm still a fan. Cover art is like Prather, also. For his genre and his day, he's a strong 3.5 stars. "
