Full Synopsis
September 1942

Without Swiss help, the Reichsbank will fail within six months.

An American airman is shot down over neutral Switzerland, with knowledge crucial to the Allied war effort.

A Russian major escapes the hell that is the Siege of Stalingrad, ordered to Bern to facilitate a Nazi-Soviet truce.

A Swiss journalist seeks evidence of her country's economic support of Nazi Germany, but ruthless men are determined to stop her.

All three will form an unlikely alliance that could alter the outcome of the negotiations between Germany and Russia.

In this rich, complex novel, based on newly declassified documents, Joel Ross takes you on a breathtaking chase through World War II Europe, where everyone's motives are suspect-and nobody is neutral.

"Narrator William Dufris performs Ross's latest WWII thriller with a breathless enthusiasm, making the listener alternately worry for the hero and cheer him on." ---AudioFile

"Fast-paced.... A plot that's hard to tear yourself away from, and the kind of sharp historical detail that makes the setting feel real." ---Booklist
