About the Book

In 1933 Germany, Jews are being murdered for no reason other than their religious preference. Andreas von Eckhart is a tortured yet brilliant physician, famed mountain climber, and womanizer who has just returned from the war a loner and hero who trusts no one. Now that his general father is dead and his sister has mysteriously disappeared, Andreas is left to wander within his inherited castle and contemplate his place in a chaotic world.

After Dr. von Eckhart is promoted to chief of staff at a London hospital, he knows he must practice medicine according to what Himmler wants. But when he realizes that someone is out to kill him, he must resort to murder himself. After the physician is enlisted by the Nazis to find the lost tribes of Israel, his quest for the truth leads him to the Middle East and finally to Tibet where he must make a decision that will change his destiny forever.

The Last Trumpet shares the gripping tale of a German physician’s torturous journey from London to the Himalayas in search of the truth amid the rise of the Third Reich.
