Historical fact meets heart-stopping action in a World War II thriller full of intrigue and fast paced action . . . sure to appeal to fans of wartime fiction. In February 1945, the US Air Force launched the largest daytime bombing offensive against Berlin, dropping over 2,250 tons of bombs on the German capital. Germany's state bank-the Reichsbank-received twenty-one direct hits, leaving the building badly damaged and the priceless contents of its vaults at risk. It was just the chance SS accountant Maj. Friedrich Schonewille was waiting for . . . Having never believed in the Fuhrer or the Reich, Schonewille is a man out for himself. Recruiting his own father, brother, and his secret Jewish wife, he concocts a plan to get rich as his homeland falls. First, they'll have to get the goods. Then, they'll have to stay ahead of the Nazis. Then, they'll have to keep from getting captured by either the Allies or Russians. And then all they have to do is not turn on each other . . . In this breakneck, "visually evocative novel" Colin Roderick Fulton imagines a scenario that could have easily happened in the dying days of the war
