(From the publisher):
Every week a tall, attractive, older woman named Evelyn Hoffmann makes her regular vist to the bustling downtown district of West Berlin. If one looked closely one might detect that she bears an uncanny resemblance to Eva Braun.
Thus begins the search into the one of the great mysteries of modern times--and the attempt to solve the mystery by young Emily Ashcroft, a beautiful Oxford historian, and the diverse group of people who become dangerously involved with her.
Weeks earlier, Emily's father, Sir Harrison Ashcroft, writing the definitive biography of Der Fuhrer, had come to Berlin to learn if Hilter and Braun had really died there or lived on, as he suspected, to survive into the present day. When Sir Harrison is killed in a freakish hit-and-run accident that appears to have been murder, Emily goes to Berlin to unravel the mystery her father had been pursuing.
In Berlin, Emily's path crosses those of a compelling cast of characters: Rex Foster, the Los Angeles architect who discovers a provcative missing blueprint; Nicholas Kirvov, the Leningrad museum curator who acquires one of Hilter's undated paintings that raises a starling question; Tovah Levine, the Israeli agent whose hunt for Nazi fugitives becomes more than a routine mission: and Wolfgang Schmidt, the meanacing and enigmatic chief of police for West Berlin. In the no-man's-land of the Berlin Wall, each of them will find his or her life changed by the dramatic discovery of the seventh secret.
