Publisher's Summary

A job he shouldn't have takenâ¿?A woman he shouldn't have lovedâ¿?A secret he shouldn't exposeâ¿?if he wants to live.Nick Neumann had it all: a Harvard degree, a beautiful fiancee, a star-making Wall Street career. But behind the dazzling veneer of this golden boy is a man haunted by the brutal killing of his father 17 years before.Now chilling new evidence has implicated his father's employer, the United Swiss Bank, in the crime. Nick doesn't know how or why. But he has a plan to find out: move to Zurich. Work for the same bank. Follow in his father's footsteps. Look for the same secretsâ¿?and uncover something so shocking, so unexpected, justice may not be enough.For as a circle of treachery tightens around him, as a woman with secrets of her own enters his life, Nick makes another chilling discovery; not just about his father but about himself and how far he's willing to go to find out what happened 17 years before - when a man died and a conspiracy was born.

Intriguing story of secrets of WW2

I was really fascinated by this story which revealed more of the secret machinations of men in powerful places during one of the most horrific and disturbing eras of recent history. The reader has an excellent delivery and his voice is easy to listen to. Good book!
