As the world trembles with the approach of World War II, a woman dies at the hands of Hitler's henchmen. Her murder forever changes her lover, Francis Scott Keegan, a relentless anti-Nazi mercenary, who becomes locked in a desperate cat-and-mouse game with the Third Reich's perfect spy, a man of a thousand faces. In an arena that encompasses presidents and gangsters, spies and sirens, the deadly present and the dark past, Keegan pursues his elusive quarry into the cutting edge of world events—and into the secret inner workings of a terrifying mission known only as "27."
"The best book of its kind since THE DAY OF THE JACKAL...Edge-of-the-seat stuff."--PEOPLE
What People Are Saying
"A rip-roaring rollercoaster of suspense, riveting from beginning to end."
Diehl integrates historical events such as Hitler's rise to power and Dillinger's bank robberies into this thriller about a heroic ex-bootlegger and his nemesis, agent 27, a Nazi planning to kidnap some of America's most powerful men. ``Despite some improbable coincidences, his solidly researched tale is suspenseful, ingenious and, in places, deeply moving,'' said PW.
