Another A-plus effort in this third in the Hannah Vogel series set in mid-1930's Germany. Hannah has snuck back into Germany on a fake passport to cover the 1936 Olympic Games for the Swiss newspaper she works for, and while there, her longtime reporter friend Peter Weill is killed in front of Hannah's eyes, appearing to be the victim of some sort of fast-acting poison. Peter had just told her he had a package for her to pick up--and presumably smuggle out of Germany--when he dies, and she feels she must stick around to try to figure out what it is. She is, and has been, pretending to be the fiance of Lars Lang, an SS officer--whose loyalties lie in other camps than the Nazis. Both would be severely tortured and put to death if discovered, and neither fully trusts the other, but they must work together to solve the mystery of Peter's death and find what he wanted Hannah to find.

These books just keep getting better and better with each one--lots of action and real immersion into the place and time, along with some interesting information about the 1936 Olympic games. This series comes highly recommended by me...can't wait until City of Broken Glass comes out!
