About the Books
Born of war. Raised by Nazis. Circumstances have given Will Hessler every excuse to become a monster. Instead, he’s going to become the one hunting them.
San Francisco, 1976: All his life, seventeen-year-old Will Hessler has had to live with the knowledge that his mother and grandfather are Nazis – escapees from the Third Reich, living anonymously in the suburbs of San Francisco. Until now, whispered rumors have been the only judgement they’ve ever received.
But when Will’s mother does the unthinkable – bombing a synagogue, killing dozens, and horribly injuring Will’s girlfriend in the process – he knows the time has finally come to choose between family and justice.
Will’s history, past and connections have positioned him perfectly to become the ultimate undercover operative, infiltrating San Francisco’s most vile and extremist groups. But when he learns of a threat that could make the Bay run red with blood, Will realizes there’s one more thing he’ll have sacrifice in order to save thousands: The chance of ever having a clear conscience again.
