In a dramatic departure from her popular prehistoric fiction, Sandra Saidak w offers up her first alternate history vel. Two generations after Germany won World War II, a lonely college student named Adolf Goebbels wanders into a dusty museum and discovers books and artifacts of a dead race called Jews. Although a member of the Nazi elite, Adolf resents the oppression, fear, and isolation that are part of daily life in the Aryan paradise his grandparents helped build. As he reads the forgotten books, and meets the outcasts who gather at the museum, Adolf discovers a purpose he has long been searching for-and danger he has never imagined. Based on real-life Nazi plans for museums of dead races, this sprawling alternate history vel takes the reader from decadent Berlin, the capital of the Nazi world empire, across the conquered nations of Europe to uncover the startling secrets at the heart of the worldwide Reich. Fans of Philip K. Dick's The Man in the High Castle and Robert Harris' Fatherland will want to read this new voice in alternate history.
