Acclaimed author Michael Weaver weaves a shimmering tapestry of suspense from a single, resonant question: How far are you willing to go to achieve world peace? The agenda is ambitious: eliminating the ethnic cleansing now raging all over Africa. The place is propitious: the town of Wannsee, Germany, where Hitler's inner circle once planned the extermination of six million Jews. The conference is historic. It is also a lie. Here, linked by their violent family histories, two lovers will defy the fate that has consigned them as mortal enemies. One is Paul Walters, formerly a contract killer for the CIA, now a painter of dark, complex brilliance. The other is Kate Dinneson, a rising star in the world of journalism, whose unfolding personal drama will prove more explosive than any story she will ever write. Together, they will join forces against a conspiracy even more treacherous than the deceptions they must continue to play against each other.
