"Once again, Twining offers a tremendously well-researched and exciting adventure that delves into the secret orders of the Nazi hierarchy and traces the history and lore of Nazi plunder." (Library Journal)
Thought this could be interesting as historical fiction but had more (marginally offensive) stereotypes than you could shake a stick at. Insufferable macho male protagonist who is like James Bond but with even less personality/integrity. Any conclusions finally drawn are myopic, convenient and flawed. Also, the female characters were primitive and described mostly as the sum of their most attractive body parts. Sorry but I did not enjoy this.
