What the f***. The story of this book is so immensely crappy, I got more and more aggressive with every page I read. So Eva Braun was secretely saved by Nazis and gave birth to Hitlers son somewhere in Switzerland, she died and the child was given to an American woman who had a stillborn child and was in a coma. So far so ridiculous. But it gets worse. Of course. Because the Nazis (who are still very active worldwide with a secret underground network called "Die Spinne") do everything to turn th ...more

Poorly written and badly edited - there is at least one paragraph that is repeated in its entirety within the first 100 pages! (describing the odessa / spider organisation) The basic plot is good but it feels clunky and I can't get beyond the appalling writing - poor dialogue and far too much tell with very little show! It is disappointing when a mainstream(ish) publisher (Hale) puts out a piece of work that would shame a self publishing author. The small consolation is that it was cheap and so ...more

I love stories that weave history, especially conspiracy theories, into a plot. This was creative and an uncomplicated romp. It would make a great film too. Cannot say too much about it or I would spoil the plot. Considering it was an Kindle daily deal it was terrific value

I love conspiracy stories--possibly because in real life, I don't believe a word of them, so I approach them the way I do other fantasy books. This wasn't the best of the lot, but it did hold my attention enough for me to read it in one day, so it gets an extra star for that.

The conspiracy itself was pretty far-fetched, but then most of them are. I mostly enjoyed bouncing between the different points of view and seeing the different threads come together, though there were a few times when the

The repeated paragraph is hard to believe in a published work and should have been sorted in a revision for this Kindle edition. There are several other errors and punctuation issues especially in the first part of the book.

I found the plotting poor and the pace forced or not explained. the characters were cardboard cutouts with virtually everyone leading double lives which they manage to achieve with no hint of other parts of the plot having a clue. I have the feeling this may have been an earl

This could have been a good book if it hadn't been written so badly. I liked the general idea but the author kept jumping between different story lines without connecting them properly. Sometimes he jumped so far ahead that I thought pieces were missing. I kept wondering if someone had done a bad job translating it or if the author's first language was not English. The wording was repetitive and the writing just felt off.

Nazi conspiracies. Is there anything left to be said?

A US presidential candidate's parentage means he is given substantial support but it also causes problems.

Good idea for a story but writing / editing / storyline wasn't very good.
