Beyond Marienburg

Regular price $14.00

Long before James Bond, British Military Intelligence was putting brave men in harms way to sabotage enemy efforts. This is the story of Weisemann, a Jewish scientist from Poland, who is recruited to track down the truth of rumors about Hitlers last and greatest Wunderwaffen, the atom bomb. When the rumors are found to be true, he is then charged with preventing its deployment until Bomber Command can obliterate the threat. The action here is taut and compelling, the characters fully fleshed-out and engaging. The depiction of the brutal conditions under the Nazi regime is detailed and unforgiving. We find ourselves holding our breathy as Weisemann faces treachery and imminent death at the hands of the Abwehr.
