To salvage the planned assault, two vastly different but equally determined men are sent to infiltrate the secret concentration camp where the poison gas is being perfected on human subjects. Their only objective: destroy all traces of the gas and the men who created it - no matter how many lives may be lost...including their own.

"This stunning, horrifying, mesmerizing novel will keep readers transfixed from beginning to end....From the very first page, Greg Iles takes his readers on an emotional roller-coaster ride, juxtaposing tension-filled action scenes, horrifying depictions of savage cruelty, and heart-stopping descriptions of sacrifice and bravery. A remarkable story from a remarkable writer." (Booklist)
"A thriller that really thrills...on fire with suspense." (Stephen King)
I just completed this Audiobook and was saddened to see it end. Very few books have kept me as intrigued as this one. I couldn't put my Ipod down and enjoyed every moment of this fascinating story. The plot was suspensful, the pace perfect, and the characters believable. While portions of the story were difficult to listen to, especially the treatment of the Camp prisoners, it was a realistic portrayal of the cruelty suffered by many. Dick Hill did an amazing job a narrator -- his accents varied and perfect. I wholehearted recommend this audiobook and give it 5 stars!
I usually listen to books while I'm doing other things such as cleaning house or running errands. So at times I can be distracted and miss a portion of a book. This was a book that held my attention and was so exciting. Very good and well worth credits or money spent. I am now a big fan of Greg Iles and I'm going to look for other books.
I have listened to over 125 unabridged books, and this is in the top 3, if not THE best. The narration is excellent, especially with the German accents. The characters and vivid, the action intense, and the book has good pace.
I am not usually a fan of WWII books but my husband loved this one and badgered me into reading it. The book grabbed me at the very beginning and didn't let go until the last words! Dick Hill as always did a great job reading. I look forward to more from Greg Iles.
Black Cross by Greg Iles was an excellent book regarding the struggles and deaths of chemical victims by Germany's medical doctors in the surround of World War II. It was very well written and a good read.
This was a great story! Could not stop listening. AND - Dick Hill is the best narrator! He does read the books he tells the story!
This is a book that both genders can and will appreciate hearing. Sometimes is was very difficult to hear what horrible abuses were done to the Jews, Christians and many other refugees in the concentration camps and we will never now how many hero's there was who helped them. It's a very powerful and well written and narrated book.
I really enjoyed this book. I had to read the beginning a few times, because I couldn't really focus, but once I settled down, I enjoyed the book. Definitely a good vs evil story. Jews vs Germans
As a native of Great Britain, I found it really hard to ignore the absolutely dreadful English and Scots accents employed by the narrator. I'm sure it isn't easy to narrate a book with such a wide range of voices and accent types, but it's really off-putting when the accents are SO bad.
I read so I can write
This is a very well written story. It is impossible to pick a favorite characters because each of them is so well developed and interesting. The narration is excellent.
