Set in Berlin 1936 at the start of the Olympics, Deaver's story tells of deceit, murder, and the early years of Nazi Germany. Paul Schumann, a New York City hit man who speaks flawless German, is recruited by the U.S. government to kill Reinhardt Ernst, who is in charge of Hitler's rearmament. But nothing goes right from the moment Schumann sets foot in Germany. Jefferson Mays reads this fast-paced book with slow tones that reflect the story's high level of detail. While Mays doesn't create accents, he follows all the twists as Schumann hunts Ernst while being hunted by the Berlin police. There's never a dull moment when murder and intrigue are afoot.
