Twenty years ago John Cooper almost single-handedly shattered the underground rise of the Fourth Reich (The Wind Chill Factor, 1976). He now lives quietly in Boston, watching old movies in his theater, until he receives a plea for help from his estranged sister in Berlin, whose daughter is missing. Thus, Cooper heads back to Germany and into a maelstrom of murder and mayhem. Neo-Nazis roam the streets, and a billionaire industrialist named Wolf Koller-who just so happens to be married to Cooper's sister-offers a vision for a new, powerful Germany. Soon, Cooper and Koller are pitted against each other, for Lee Koller and her daughter are but pawns in Wolf's deadly game. Gifford has once again fashioned an absorbing, riveting, horrifyingly plausible tale. Readers looking for post-Cold War thrillers need look no further. Recommended for most fiction collections.

Twenty years have passed since John Cooper triggered a series of events that shattered the underground rise of the Fourth Reich. Unable to make peace with his own history, Cooper has submerged himself in the old films he plays at his Boston movie house until a message comes from his estranged sister in Germany...a plea for help. Her only child is missing. Cooper's search for Lee's daughter leads him into a labyrinth of half-truths and veiled warnings - and ultimately, terrifying violence.

John Cooper is back. Twenty years after triggering a series of events that shattered the underground rise of the Fourth Reich, Cooper is unable to make peace with his past and has submerged himself in the old films he runs at his Boston movie house. Then a message comes from his estranged sister, Lee...a plea for help. Her only child is missing. Cooper finds the Berlin of the nineties disturbingly familiar. The threat that was hidden two decades ago is now out in the open - neo-Nazi thugs roam the streets, murdering and terrorizing their immigrant targets. But a charismatic leader has emerged to oppose the fascists and point the way to a great new Germany. He is Wolf Koller...and he is married to John Cooper's sister, Lee. But is their daughter, Erika, the victim of a kidnapping plot aimed at Wolf Koller's very public stand against the neo-Nazis, or is her disappearance connected to Erika's own idealistic and dangerous politics? Lost in a labyrinth of half-truths and veiled warnings, John Cooper's angry suspicions bring him roaring back to life - until his probing becomes a deadly threat. For a new conspiracy exists in Germany, and the stakes are higher than ever before.
