Publisher's Summary

Eminent Oxford don Sir Harrison Ashcroft, on the verge of proving that Hitler did not die in the bunker, is murdered in Berlin. His daughter, Emily, continues this quest. Her life is endangered but she has new and unexpected protectors: Rex Foster, researching the vainglory of Nazi architecture; Nicholas Kirvov, curator of a Soviet art museum; and Tovah Levine, Mossad agent. The four prove a tough match for a coterie of neo-Nazis conspiring to perpetuate Hitler's image and obscure the details of his death. The true story of Hitler's last hours is revealed in counterpoint by Eva Braun, who has indeed survived. Now known as Evelyn Hoffmann, she has another secret: she and der Fuhrer had a child.

Solid Conspiracy Theory

One of the biggest rumors of the second World War revolves around Hitler and Ava making it out of the bunker. The theory is sound and believable with action and suspense thrown in. It is a good book for conspiracy theorists and those who like learning about the Nazis.

preposterous denouement

I would have rated this book much higher if not for a couple of episodes that really put me off. First, there was the sex scene, which didn't seem quite plausible: that two educated, sophisticated professional people would jump into bed so casually. But then, the story was set in the '80's, so unprotected impulsive sex might be a way to reflect history, if it wasn't just that an agent told the author that some kind of sex was a contract requirement. I started to wonder if the book was written by committee, but the story picked up and moved on quite alright so I stopped being critical until the end. There, the protagonists, who had held the high moral ground to that point, suddenly became incredibly bloodthirsty and civically irresponsibly, leaving me with the notion that the author just got tired of writing and decided to wind it up any old way.
