This was my first book by the author of the Borne series. The story is an adventuresome Fourth Reich tale. The most interesting aspect is the idea of Sonnenkinder, children of Nazis sent into the world at the end of the war to be raised by those loyal to the cause and well positioned in society so that these chosen ones can assume positions of power worldwide. The storyline is very similar to Ira Levin's Boys from Brazil. Both would make good movies.

As an aside, while reading this book, I happened to watch a dubbed movie called "The Crimson Rivers" also with the theme of a pure and groomed race perched to take-over.
