Set in the tense and uncertain years before World War II, Fear Itself follows Jimmy Nessheim, a young Special Agent in the fledgling FBI, as he goes undercover to infiltrate a new German-American organization known as the Bund.

Ardently pro-Nazi, the Bund is conspiring to sabotage American efforts against Adolf Hitler. But it becomes increasingly clear that something far more sinister is at work, something that seems to lead directly to the White House. As Nessheim moves closer to the truth, an even more lethal plot emerges, one that could rewrite history.

Review:

"A stirring successor to Frederick Forsyth...a superlative thriller."---"The Independent"

"An intriguing story, well told."---"Literary Review"

"An elegant political thriller written with style and skill."---"Daily Mail"

""Fear Itself" has very much the feel of a film noir, with plenty of post-Depression grit, intrigue, FBI politics, scheming socialites, eleventh-hour escapes, red herrings, dubious characters, and a general sense that nobody can be trusted. And if Nessheim is clueless at crucial times, if coincidences tend to happen, if a few threads are left hanging--still the vividly detailed setting, a tight pace, and well-researched glimpses of Hoover and William Stephenson provide an atmospheric and entertaining read."----Historical Novel Society

"[A] top-notch historical thriller...this intelligent page-turner will only whet reader's appetites for more."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

Praise for "Fear Itself"

"If you like wartime political thrillers, you'll love Andrew Rosenheim's gripping "Fear Itself"." --"Newsweek / Daily Beast"

"This top-notch historical thriller from Rosenheim, the first in a new series . . . will only whet readers' appetites for more." --"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

"Riveting . . . Rosenheim paints a disturbingly vivid portrait of the U.S. driven by the Great Depression, political conflicts, and concerns about looming war in Europe." --"Booklist"
