1942 A Bavarian castle explodes, killing the new Fuhrer, Heinrich Himmler. Among the dead – SS Obergruppenfuhrer Reinhard Heydrich. The only survivor – a Jew by the name of Benjamin Bernstein, and the only one who really knows what happened that night.
1976 Heydrich’s widow dies in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Her son Jose, a Professor of Music Archaeology, discovers two safety deposit boxes and their grisly contents. For him, Europe and an enigmatic rock star hold the key to uncover the truth of the past and what his parents really did during the war. What he discovers is worse than he could have possibly imagined.
In the end it is Jose who has to stop the inevitable finale of what was begun thirty-four years previously –
the resurrection of the Fourth Reich!
"Good's writing style is brilliant. He captures the atmosphere of the dark dealings with Neo-Nazis fantastically well."
