In the waning days of 1941 with America only weeks away from war, Rick Kasten is sent into the heart of Nazi-occupied Europe to find out the Third Reich’s plans for Latin America. Entertained in Berlin by the elite of Hitler’s henchmen, he finds himself among a group of American profiteers, executives from the cream of American business who are eager to back both sides in the war as long as they make a profit. Still aching for his lost Aurelia, Kasten takes time to settle his score with Hangman Heydrich’s thugs before heading for Paris. Betrayed and hunted by German agents he makes his way out of Fortress Europa only to find himself a player in a deadly game of hide and seek on the stormy Atlantic.
