1938: In a Berlin lab three years before America’s entry into World War II, Hitler’s scientists were first on the planet to release the atom's energy. Suddenly, Germany was the only nation racing to find the secret to the ultimate weapon. If the Nazis’ quest couldn’t be checked, civilization would vanish. German general Ludwig Beck’s heroic Black Orchestra Underground fighters swore to topple Hitler before he extinguished humanity. That much is history.
In the heart of the terror-slammed German capital, Alex Drake, an American expat journalist with an old and very personal hatred of the Nazis, is recruited by Black Orchestra. Their network of spies has uncovered the existence of Hitler’s atom bomb project, but no German atomic scientist can be trusted to help them disrupt it. They must have a channel to America to piece together the knowledge essential to block this menace as they battle the Gestapo, betrayal from within, and their own demons to stop the German atomic bomb.
Success or failure of their struggle to derail Hitler’s ultimate weapon lies with the widow of a fallen Black Orchestra member. Her courage and intelligence will ultimately decide the fate of humanity. The keystone for creating the atomic bomb: The Armageddon Secret.
