1932. Winston Churchill has ominous intelligence from a confidential source. Across the United States, naked bodies, drained of blood, their eyeballs extracted are found at ten remote locations. A serial killer? Or something worse? Churchill’s source believes the answers may lie in Germany.
Churchill’s god-daughter Mattie McGary is assigned by William Randolph Hearst to investigate and, aided by Bourke Cockran, her lover and a former Army counterintelligence agent, they learn all ten victims were twins and become a target of an international conspiracy reaching from the canyons of Wall Street to the marble corridors of the Barlow Palace in Munich where the Nazi Party is poised on the cusp of power. And now, ten more twins are missing and time is running out…
“This series set in America and Europe during the 1930s gets better and more suspenseful each time out. The three leading characters are as fascinating as ever and the story about secret experiments on twins is both chilling and irresistably entertaining.”
–LES ROBERTS, PAST PRESIDENT, PRIVATE EYE WRITERS OF AMERICA and THE CRIME WRITERS LEAGUE.
“Once more the McMenamins have successfully weaved together history and fantasy in a dramatic thriller, one which forces Americans to confront the ugly truth about their own country’s involvement with Eugenics. Once more though, Churchill is there to confound Hitler’s ‘perverted science’ and ‘the grisly gang that works his wicked will’.”
–DAVID FREEMAN in FINEST HOUR, Journal of The Churchill Centre and Museum in London.
