In the spring of 1959, a seemingly minor mistake in a wire transfer at a Swiss bank leads to the discovery of a plot. The CIA plans to launch a nuclear attack on the leaders of the USSR and China and to install Hitler, who is still alive and hiding in South America, as the leader of Western Europe. "Devotees of World War II fiction, especially those familiar with the questions surrounding Hitler’s death, will undoubtedly relish this book." – US Review of Books
