An unidentified object crashes from the sky into an Arizona canyon, releasing anthrax spores and leaving innocent victims in its wake. Investigators are shocked by what they find in the rubble: a swastika. They call upon former spy and World War II–era weapons expert Lewis Sharp for help.

A mysterious event occurs over an Arizona Indian reserve. No one can figure out what is going on except that it is serious. People are dead from what appears to be chemical warfare. An odd note has been sent to the British Embassy. A riddle that taunts the British suggesting that they are next. "Three little maids from school are we ... Alex, Meg and Tifanee." Lewis Sharp is drafted to help as an expert of the Nazi secret weapons program. In the mangled remains of the explosion a swastika is dis ...more
The residents of a small Arizona reservation town die an nearly inexplicable death. The remains of what looks like a bomb have Nazi markings on them. The authorities must figure out if the weapon is really old Nazi ordinance, that no one has ever heard about before, or if militia rascists fabricated it hoping to avoid detection.

I'm a sucker for a swastika. Now before you go, "Huh?" let me explain. When I come across a novel with a swastika on the cover, I have to stop and read the summary.

I'd never read Bill Napier before, but it sounded interesting and worth a shot.

I wasn't disappointed. This book was terrific. And if I hadn't

The most interesting half of the book was the story of a young engineer, conscripted into this secret program, and the story of his life in the war. The modern day action was a little too tame for me. A lot of flying around, with two organizations, MI6 and the FBI/CIA - since they were ...more
