From the highly acclaimed international bestselling author Glenn Meade comes a riveting and spellbinding new thriller.
In Berlin a political activist is gunned down in the street. In Paraguay a smuggler is killed in a hit-and-run. And then an elderly German businessman puts a gun in his mouth in his luxurious South American mansion. Joseph Volkmann, a member of an elite European security force, finds himself drawn into the mystery of the brutal deaths, investigating a link between the seemingly random cases that cost the journalist who connected them his life.
For Volkmann a painful journey lies ahead, leading him from barren Mexican ranches to Italian ports and abandoned German monestaries, a journey that will force him to confront his own ghosts and a people he has long mistrusted. At first Volkmann has little to go on-only an inconclusive taped conversation and the charred remains of an old, torn black-and-white photograph that may hold the key to a momentous, horrific plan promising to turn the clock of European history back half a century. What makes this plan all the more terrifying is that it may reflect actual events unfolding today.
Heralded by critics and fans as the next Robert Ludlum or Frederick Forsyth, Glenn Meade has done it again with Brandenburg- a sizzling read, packed with action, great characters, and an engaging story.
