In James W. Huston's thrilling new adventure, an FBI agent travels the world after vowing to end the surging neo-Nazi movement.
The last time the Blood Flag was seen was October 18, 1944, when Heinrich Himmler displayed it proudly while commissioning the Volkssturm, the Nazi Party's new militia made up of men from sixteen to sixty, which they hoped would avert the certain defeat that awaited Germany.
Hitler believed the Blood Flag, die Blutfahne, carried sacred powers. It held the blood of the first Nazi martyrs -- those killed in the Beer Hall Putsch in Munich in 1923 -- when Hitler first tried to take over Germany. Several Nazis were shot during the fight and fell on the flag, pouring their blood into the already-red flag with its white circle and black swastika in the middle.
That flag still lives.
Kyle Morrissey, a special agent for the FBI, is in Europe with his father to see him receive the Legion of Honor from France for his service at Normandy -- a moving ceremony; an inspiration. But after the ceremony, while traveling with his family in Germany, he and his family encounter neo-Nazis determined to perpetuate the evil philosophy Morrissey thought his father's generation had ended once and for all in World War II. At first baffled, he becomes furious. He had heard of small gangs who claimed to be neo-Nazis, but had thought them to be nothing serious. Now, faced with tens of thousands of them, ready to again raise high the swastika and renew the hatred of the thirties and forties, Morrissey decides to do something about it.
He embarks on a personal mission to try to bring down both the domestic neo-Nazis and the neo-Nazi movements growing around the world like a fungus. But how?
In trying to understand the history of Nazism, Morrissey learns of the Blood Flag and knows it is the key he needs. He sets out to find it, and to use it like a bright torch in a dark night to attract Nazi moths, to draw them to him, and eliminate them as a threat.
From South Carolina, to DC, to Dresden, to Recklinghausen and Argentina, the Blood Flag leads Morrissey on a worldwide race for the flag and an attempt to end international Nazism. It is a race that will force him to rely on men he doesn't trust and take risks he's never taken before to save himself before he is discovered.
