    " The Traitor's Emblem recounts the tale of Paul Reiner, a man searching for his father's murderer in Germany between the two world wars, an adventure that eventually reveals buried family secrets, leads to a betrayal by a brother, and the discovery of buried treasure. In the course of the novel, Paul finds himself making similar mistakes as his father made, although his fate is ultimately different. The historical setting of Nazi Germany also heightens the drama by including several Jewish characters who struggle to adapt their lives to the new regime. "

    " Well, finished this a few hours ago after occasional gaps in progress and indeed enjoyed it immensely. It made a deep impression on me, as I could easy spot paralelisms between 1920's Germany and nowadays. I could have read a hundred pages more, but it is a captivating story overall. This one it is screaming to be a Hollywood blockbuster. "

    " The book was a rather interesting and fun read although the ending was a bit anti-climactic and a bit of a let-down. All and all though, it held my interest and was well written. I look forward to more of this author's work. "

    " Other reviews go into more details, but here is my own quick response to The Traitor's Emblem. Once I started reading, I simply could not put it down. This was a true page-turner, as it was very well developed, and structured as a novel. Also, there is no doubt a tremendous amount of research was conducted by Gomez Jurado, with a lot of information around which to frame a story. One of the best historical novels I've ever read. It's disguised as a thriller, but when you think about it this is the tale of how Germany went downhill because of Hitler. Think about it while you enjoy this great novel. "

    " This was such a good book. It's based on a true story and deals with Hitler, Germany, and parts of the Holocaust. Love, hate, murder, suspense, history, and adventure are all intertwined in this book. This is the second book I've read by Gomez-Jurado - I plan on reading the rest of them! "

    " I give this five stars for the characters, writing, and clever ideas in authentic context - like following a sort of high-quality soap opera. Jurgen, Paul and Alys form such a bizarre love triangle that you can't put the book down. "

    " Great book! Lots of history on Hitler's rise to power! Recommend! "

    " very similar to Jeffrey Archer's, "Only Time Will Tell", except without Archer's great British wit. Still, a page turner. "

    " Fun to read! A work of fiction that created enough intrigue to make me look up some facts. The writer was able to really paint a visual image of that difficult times - very entertaining! "

    " 4.0 very good story, I hope he does right the second part mentioned in the notes at the end! I liked the way it gave you insigt into the period of history in Germany leading up to WWII "

    " I don't know what to think. The paragraphs are well written and the premise, at least from the cover, seemed interesting. But after 100 pages, I wasn't hooked, nothing seemed to be happening, and I was not enjoying myself. I stopped there. "

    " Although the characters and the story are thin in parts, I still couldn't put this book down! A great read if you're looking for something to take you away from the start. "
