"A Disappointing & Implausible Novel!" according to Jana L.Perskie. Having read Philip Kerr's outstanding "Berlin Noir Trilogy," I looked forward to the publication of his latest novel, "Hitler's Peace." I was amazed to find myself pushing to get through a plodding narrative based on unlikely events, with totally unrealistic characters. This is, by far, inferior to the author's previous historical thrillers. I am doubly disappointed because I am fascinated by the history of WWII, and having read extensively about that period, I had hoped for a creative fictional account of mili.

All rights reserved. in a second European front, are trying to figure out how to get around Roosevelt's demand for an unconditional surrender. . For Willard Mayer, a 35-year-old Harvard-educated empirical philosopher, the roots of pro-Communist realpolitiking run deep. Kerr is as interested in backdoor diplomatic efforts as he is in espionage and assassination, and this highly entertaining spy fiction also explores the moral quandaries of war and realpolitik.

En route to Tehran, at Roosevelt's insistence, for the Big Three conference in November 1943 aboard the USS Iowa, Mayer believes he's uncovered a plot to assassinate Josep

The upcoming Allied conference in Teheran will set the ground rules for their second front-and for the peace to come. Realizing that the unconditional surrender FDR has demanded will leave Germany in ruins, Hitler has put out peace feelers. (Unbeknownst to him, so has Himmler, who is ready to stage a coup in order to reach an accord.) FDR and Stalin are willing to negotiate. Only Churchill refuses to listen.At the center of this high-stakes game of deals and doubledealing is Willard Mayer, an OSS operative who has been chosen by FDR to serve as
