Back cover blurb: In this alternate history thriller set in the years after World War II—the sequel to The Darkest Hour—John Rossett joins forces with his Nazi superior to save the commander’s family as the Germans race to make the first atomic bomb. The Germans occupy a defeated Great Britain. In London, detective John Rossett and his former Nazi boss Ernst Koehler must work together when Koehler's wife and daughter are kidnapped by American spies. Caught between the Nazi SS, the violent British resistance, and Americans with very uncertain loyalties, Rossett must make his way out of London and find Ruth Hartz, a Jewish scientist who is forced to develop the atomic bomb for Germany. When every choice has deadly consequences, will these complex and conflicted characters protect themselves, their homeland, or the innocent individuals trying to endure in a world of peril?
