Reviews

Blum unravels the Tehran plot as a cat-and-mouse game between Mike Reilly, the U.S. Secret Service agent in charge of protecting Roosevelt, and Nazi foreign intelligence officer Walter Schellenberg....Espionage fans will savor this wide-ranging, novelistic account.. --Publishers Weekly
A truly thrilling expose of the previously unknown Nazi assassination plot that could have changed history.--Edward Jay Epstein, New York Times bestselling author of The Assassination Chronicles
An entertaining story of skullduggery....a breathless drama in novelistic form with insight into the characters' conversations, thoughts, and emotions.--Kirkus Reviews
"[Blum] weaves a fast-paced story of how Nazi intelligence services and special commando units tried to infiltrate an assassination team into Iran...Ian Fleming himself could not have written such an improbable yet actual plot. The moves and counter-moves in this tight and engaging story show that World War II was fought just as much in shadowy back alleys as on the battlefield."--New York Journal of Books
"Here is a story largely unknown about a plot by Adolf Hitler to murder Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and Josef Stalin...Paced like a novel, Mr. Blum will leave you waiting for the big Nazi reveal."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
