This takes place in 1936 and the divisive climate in Germany is frighteningly similar to our current political climate. A group in Washington decides to interfere with Germany’s rearmament by assassinating the architect of rearmament. They chose a Veteran who served in WWI and came home and became a button man.
Paul Schumann speaks fluent German and has a modicum of self-loathing. He feels that he only kills people who deserve it such as mobsters, however he isn’t thrilled with his occupation. Cut by the Feds he is given a choice to become their black ops man or go to prison.
Paul chooses to go to Germany and assassinate Rhinehart Ernst, the man most effective in the German rearmament program.
Once in Germany, Paul is mortified to see the behavior of the Nazis. His assignment becomes complicated.
In the end Paul finds himself and starts a new life or does he?
Lots of interesting history and color with violence and action.
I enjoyed the book.
