The objective: a kidnapping that will seal the doom of the Allies and deliver the world to Nazi domination. The mastermind: Rudolf Hess, mysterious Nazi defector. The outcome: a relentlessly explosive novel of World War II and a desperate gambit to forestall the atomic age.
November 1942. As scientists in America and Germany race neck-inneck toward an apocalyptic nuclear discovery, Rudolf Hess, long presumed a defector from Hitler's inner circle, is secretly flown to Chicago to meet with Enrico Fermi, the genius behind the Allies' atomic warfare strategy. While Fermi pumps the former Deputy Fuhrer for details of a bomb near completion in Berlin, Hess -who has plotted his coup for months-swings into action. Carefully planted within Hess's security guard are Nazi collaborators, who now reveal their chilling number. And, while a squad of ruthless SS commandos infiltrate Chicago, a crack sharpshooter trains his cross-hairs on the American chief of security. Skillfully eluding the guards, whose attention is suddenly diverted by bombs that detonate about the besieged city, Hess seizes his opportunity-and his hostage: Enrico Fermi.
