What we need is an American.That was the word from British Military Intelligence. It was October 27, 1941, and Hitler was victorious from Calais to the outskirts of Moscow. Only Britain held out against him, fighting alone, stretched to the limit. Her one hope of survival was that the United States would enter the war, and the Germans were hell-bent to prevent that. It all came down to one desperate gamble.That they needed was an American like David Steadman. Barely recovered from a shrapnel wound sustained in the Spanish Civil War, the rich young adventurer undertakes a lethal mission at the urging of his best friend's beautiful wife, whom he has come, guilt-ridden, to adore. As he flees across Europe, pursued by an SS captain who has tracked him from Spain, Steadman finds everyone turning against him. Through a farrago of passions and dangerous motives, both the British and the Germans want him dead-along with the incendiary secret he carries locked in his memory.What others are saying about The Berlin WarningNew York TimesRead a novel as cleanly composed and well-paced as Nicholas Guild's Berlin Warning and you'll never again be satisfied with ordinary thrillers.Library JournalThis is a swift and savage thriller that switches from hunted to hunter as it moves steadily across wartime Europe to a shattering conclusion on the streets of Washington. Guild constructs realistic and complex heroes and villains, as well as a strong supporting cast.Daily TelegraphEqually enjoyable is Nicholas Guild's The Berlin Warning, a Manhunt thriller which is far better written than most of the genre. . . Books that linger in the mind not only for the power of their plotting but also for the depth of their characterization are rare, but this is one.El Paso Herald PostThis is an excellent novel on three levels. It is a well-paced spy story and a good piece of accurate historical fiction. And it is disturbingly thought-provoking.
