About this title


Escaping from a castle where he is being held as a prisoner of war, an American commando with orders to assassinate Adolph Hitler fights his way to 1945 Berlin, trailed by a German homicide detective. By the author of White Star. 35,000 first printing.


It's remarkable that practicing lawyers such as Seattle's James Thayer find the time, not to mention the psychic energy, to write smashing, fact-packed thrillers like this top-drawer tale, in which a lone assassin is sent into Germany at the end of World War II by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to knock off Hitler. Unlike other "what if?" books such as The Day of the Jackal, where readers know from the start that the plot to kill de Gaulle didn't succeed, Five Past Midnight winds up in the ruins of Hitler's bunker, where the Nazi leader indeed met his end. Whether or not it was at the hands of American commando Jack Cray is up to readers to decide--and Thayer does his best to sway the jury in favor of his client. His last gripping thriller, White Star, is out in paperback.
