Having served in the Military, for two years, twenty years after the time that this book portrays, I read all books that pertain to that city. I was disappointed with this book. It was very wordy and tried to portray Berlin and the Tiergarten, where Hitler is supposed to have committed suicide. However, it was done piecemeal and didn't ring true to me. It came across to me more like made up fiction than rather than an attempt at being a historical novel.
German-American hitman Paul Schuman is on a Government mission that, if successfull, will spare him from the electric chairand could avert war in Europe.
A very well written and exciting spy-asssain tale. I was doubtful that I would enjoy this book and it turned out to be one of the best I have read. It reminded me of a Nelson Demille story.
My first Deaver novel and I couldn't put it down. I really enjoyed the history part of the book. Lots of twists, great ending.
