Publisher's Summary

This 1985 espionage thriller follows FBI agent William Cochran's efforts to stop a Nazi spy from assassinating FDR. Toss in a love affair with a British Secret Service operative and you have the makings of a pause-resister.
It is 1939. Roosevelt is winding down his second term in the White House. The Nazis have taken Austria, and Stalin's Red Army is systematically eliminating the Kremlin's enemies. Europe is going to hell in a handbasket. With isolationist sentiment running high in America, and the president's popularity at an all-time low, Hitler seizes the moment and dispatches his secret weapon: An agent named "Siegfried" who conceals himself behind the mask of middle-class America. A chameleon who can change identities and personalities at will. A cold-blooded killer who will win the war for Germany. A banker, linguist, and demolitions expert who has successfully infiltrated German intelligence, FBI Special Agent Thomas Cochrane is handpicked by Roosevelt for an impossible mission: to find Hitler's spy before he carries out a plan that will remove the president from office at a critical moment in the century's history. As Cochrane, with the help of British Intelligence agent Laura Worthington, circles closer to his elusive quarry, a spy with supporters in the highest levels of U.S. government readies the world stage for a final act of annihilation that will alter the tide of war - and the future of the free world - in unthinkable ways.

Terrific Nazi Spy Novel

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

But spoiled by a terrible reader. Not does he mispronounce the German words, he can't even pronounce the English ones (paradigm, allay, etc.). And he can't put the emphasis on the right word either. Then there's the grating Brooklyn accent.

Slow to Start But Builds Steam as is Goes

The story starts off a little slow as characters are built and story lines are established but once you get into the meat of the story, it turns into a nice WWII espionage tale. FBI, British SAS, NAZI's all mixed into a tale of intrigue. This is one of those stories for a winters afternoon when you want to get lost in a good book to forget the cold gray day outside.
