The Arms Maker of Berlin

Beautifully structured and wildly compelling, Fesperman accurately and in some ways poignantly puts forth the story of the lives twisted and torn apart by Nazi Germany. Concurrently, the present-day historian's "treasure search" is vivid and clever.

Woe that his historian protagonist hasn't the same cleverness. At times, in fact, the reader wants to shout at his idiocy (Hmm, don't leave your laptop with all its precious notes in your hotel room all day, ja?) via iPad screen. However, round p 300 Clot Prof clues in and he actually becomes quite bright.

All in all, an extremely worthwhile read.
