Erika Lehmann. She is the Nazis' top spy. Code-named Lorelei, she is the English speaking daughter of Hitler's old comrade and a member of the Fhrer's inner circle. She is beautiful, athletic, and clever-the epitome of Aryan womanhood-and she'll stop at nothing to accomplish her mission. Charlie Pulaski. A down-and-out FBI agent from Chicago on his last legs, Pulaski is sent on what he is sure is a pointless wild goose chase when a garbled shortwave transmission coming from southern Indiana is accidentally intercepted by an amateur HAM radio operator. Axel Ryker. The Gestapo's top henchman. Ryker is Heinrich Himmler's top problem solver, i.e. murderer. As ruthless as he is cunning, Ryker is sent to America with a startling mission-find and kill their own spy, Erika Lehmann. The year is 1942. In Evansville, Indiana, a Jewish metallurgist named Joseph Mayer is conducting top secret experiments for the U.S. Navy. Life could not be better for Joe Mayer: he loves his job, he is contributing greatly to the war effort, and he just began dating a fascinating young woman.
