It is January 1944 ? and as Allied troops prepare for D-day, Nazi scientists develop a toxic nerve gas that will repel and wipe out any invasion force. To salvage the planned assault, two vastly different but equally determined men are sent to infiltrate the secret concentration camp where the poison gas is being perfected on human subjects. Their only objective: Destroy all traces of the gas and the men who created it ? no matter how many lives may be lost...including their own. “Stunning....From the very first page, Greg Iles takes his readers on an emotional roller-coaster ride, juxtaposing tension-filled action scenes, horrifying depictions of savage cruelty, and heart-stopping descriptions of sacrifice and bravery. A remarkable story from a remarkable writer.” ? Booklist

It's 1944, and Winston Churchill has reason to believe that the Germans are getting ready to use chemical weapons on Allied troops. Mac, a chemical researcher, and Stern, a guerilla fighter, are faced with the task of destroying a concentration camp in the hopes of convincing the Germans that the Allies are one step ahead of them in developing deadly gases. Saunders delivers a fine performance of the rough-and-ready characters, as well as a thoughtful Churchill and a distinguished Eisenhower. He handles the range of accents without effort. This is a fast-paced story with high action and military grit. F.L.F. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
