My book talks are coming at you from a librarian, not a reviewer. You won’t find me talking about style or craft, why I think this could’ve been better or what worked or didn’t work. I only do book talks on books I liked and want other people to know about. So if it’s here I probably think it won’t injure your brain if you read it.
Gretchen knows that Munich isn’t the safest place in 1930, but because of her social connections, she doesn’t know the half of it. Her father lost his life protecting Hitler during the National Socialist Party uprising, and “Uncle Dolf” has looked out for her and her brother ever since. When she stops her brother from beating up an elderly Jewish man on the street in order to protect the image of the National Socialists, her brother only sneers at her, knowing full well what they actually stand for.
But Gretchen has grown up under the Nazi wing, and Hitler has been nothing but kind to her. She’s always dismissed the ugly rumors about Uncle Dolf and their party, until she meets Daniel, a young Jewish reporter who tells her he thinks that her father wasn’t exactly a willing sacrifice to save Hitler… that he may have been murdered by that very man instead.
As her attraction to Daniel grows and her brother’s sadism increases, Gretchen begins her own investigation into her father’s death. With her enemies becoming friends and her friends becoming enemies, Gretchen’s life is about to turn upside down.
