Blackwell North Amer November 1943: Adolf Hitler sanctioned his most audacious mission ever - to kill U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill as they visit Cairo for a secret conference to plan the Allied invasion of Europe, an invasion that threatens imminent defeat for Germany. This really happened and is the basis for Glenn Meade's new novel. Only one man is capable of leading the defiant Nazi mission - Major Johann Halder, one of the Abwehr's most brilliant, daring agents, a man with a tortured soul and a talent for the impossible. Accompanied by an expert undercover team, and a young and beautiful Egyptologist, Rachel Stern, Halder must race against time across a hostile desert to reach Cairo and successfully carry out the assignment, or forfeit his own life and that of his young son. When U.S. military intelligence learns of the plan, they assign one of their best officers, Lieutenant Colonel Harry Weaver, to hunt down and eliminate Halder and his team. But for Weaver, as for Johann Halder and Rachel Stern, there's more than just the balance of the war and the lives of the Allied leaders at stake - a pact of love and friendship is about to be tested in a frantic, high-stakes chase to the death.
