Publisher's Summary

A former professor descends into darkness in this provocative story of a Nazi soldier torn between duty and conscience.

East Prussia, Nazi Germany, 1939. History professor Erik Mueller is a model citizen and a family man. He's also a decorated sergeant in the Gestapo. Proving his courage on the battlefields of Poland and the Soviet Union, and proud of the German army's victories across Europe, he embraces what he thinks is the righteousness of the Third Reich's cause.

But his loyalties are soon tested when he crosses paths with his old university friend Trude Bensheim. Forced into unemployment for being Jewish, Trude and her husband start a secret organization to help Jews escape Germany. But when they are betrayed by someone they thought they could trust, their lives hang in the balance.

Erik feels responsible for Trude's capture, and he knows he's in a position to help them. But when everything he holds dear is at stake, will he save his friends...or himself?

    "Such an exciting audio book that kept me nervous"

    I loved hearing about everyday German people who helped the Jews to their detriment. I disliked that I had to constantly remind. Myself that some of characters I liked were Germans and nazis and Americans enemy. They could have been fighting my own daddy and uncles. They were our enemy but a human side was shown of one major character. A Nazi who do get against the allies I disliked led the fact that so many evil nazis and Germans escaped to South America
    The audio was so good I highly recommend it

    "Excellent book "

    Loved every part of this book. It was well written and I couldn’t stop reading (listening). I really enjoy learning the history of WWII and I believe James did a great job portraying the sad, heartbreaking history though his characters. The character development was excellent and I felt I was able to get a glimpse of the different perspectives of those that lived through WWII. I also appreciate the historical information at the end of the book.
    Must Read!

    Story
    "War criminals and escapees were regarded as war heroes in some countries."

    he said in his Nobel acceptance speech. “What I discovered in Auschwitz is the human condition, the end point of a great adventure, where the European traveler arrived after his 2,000-year-old moral and cultural history.”
