From the cover: As the world trembles with the approach of World War II, a woman dies at the hands of Hitler's henchmen. Her murder forever changes the life and destiny of the man who loves her.

Francis Scott Keegan, once a notorious American millionaire, is now a relentless anti-Nazi mercenary. But Keegan may be in too deep, locked in a desperate cat-and-mouse game with the Third Reich's perfect spay, a man of a thousand faces, a man no one has ever seen, a man racing to fulfill a harrowing plot...

In an arena that encompasses presidents and gangsters, spies, and sirens, the deadly present and the dark past, Keegan pursues his elusive quarry onto the cutting edge of world events ... and into the secret inner workings of a terrifying mission known only as "27"...

If you are not familar with Diehl's novels, you are in for a surprize. He is at the top of the list in spymaster thrillers and this espionage thriller is no exception. This novel interweaves fictional creations amoung historical figures. In this case, Hitler and his henchmen, and the beginnings of World War Two. The plot is a highly trained superspy buried in the United States for six years with a plan to neuterlize the United States from entering the war with France and England.
