It's 1936, the summer of Hitler's Olympic Games, and the world, undecided about the Fuhrer's ultimate goals, is looking to Berlin to see what transpires. That summer, reporter Richard Denham accepts an invitation to fly on the zeppelin Hindenburg from its home base to Berlin. Also on her way to the Games is socialite and U.S. Olympian Eleanor Emerson, a high-spirited woman of her own mind. They meet and together soon realize the power of Hitler's propaganda machine and his ultimate desire to destroy not only Jews but other "undesirables" as well. They encounter the only Jewish member of the German Olympic team-who has been coerced to compete but told to lose-and mount a heroic campaign to rescue her and her family from certain death. VERDICT This first novel by British journalist John is a stunning example of its genre. The characters are fully realized, the plots twist and turn, the pages flip at lightning speed. Lovers of historical thrillers, World War II stories, athletic history, and espionage novels will be mesmerized by this offering.
