This is the second book by this new author. The original grabbed my attention and was a fun read. This book continues this pattern. It's beneficial to read the first book - "Double Eagle" by this author before reading this novel.

This book is based on the idea of the Gold Train in Hungary after WWII. The adventure begins when a theft of an Enigma machine from the National Cryptoloic Museum occurs, a mysterious murder of an Auschwitz survivor and the amputation of his arm, and some potential clues hidden in some little known paintings. What is Tom Kirk and companions on the trail to discover. There was something that was secreted on the Gold Train that was hidden by an unique order of 12 from the Nazi era. Who is pursuing Tom's progress and willing to kill him if he gets too close.

Great action novel on the heels of Twining's debut novel.

The "DaVinci Code", this time starring Nazis. Sometimes the book seemed to have too many things going at once, making it difficult to follow who was who, but an entertaining ride. It tries to develop characters, but it falls short of really making you care about them.
