Publisher's Summary

In Blood of the Reich, critically acclaimed and best-selling author William Dietrich weaves two stories separated by place and time yet deeply intertwined by the dangerous secret they share.

On the eve of World War II, explorer Kurt Raeder receives orders from Reichsfuhrer-SS Heinrich Himmler to set out from Berlin in search of a legendary energy source hidden among the mountains of Tibet - one that could bring victory to the Nazis. Only one man can stop Raeder and his team of SS officers: wealthy American zoologist Benjamin Hood. Together with aviatrix Beth Calloway, he must race to the Buddhist kingdom before the tides of history run red with blood.

Decades later, in present-day Seattle, software publicist Rominy Pickett is saved from certain death by a mysterious journalist who claims to know the truth about her family. Rominy's history and courage hold the key to defeating, once and for all, the evil forces again on the rise.

Moving from the remote woods of the Pacific Northwest to the underground laboratories of the CERN supercollider in France and Switzerland and to the mystical temples of Tibet, Blood of the Reich is a white-knuckle thrill ride filled with adventure, authentic historical detail, and unforgettable characters. This is William Dietrich at his very best.

    Story
    "I admit it, I love this stuff"

    This was silly and wacky. An improbably tale with some really improbably happenings and I don't think it was written with that intent. But I did enjoy it. Very Indiana Jones. A bit of fun and frolic with 2 time lines. There's a bit of mystery.

    The end is fun and a bit of a fun twist. It was perhaps telegraphed but I think only the more savvy readers will see it coming.

    This is not a novel for a serious reader. I would recommend it for those who like a bit a lighter reading. Definitely something that teen-agers might even enjoy...although I didn't pay attention to whether or not it was totally appropriate so take that with a grain of salt.

    Recommend: yes.

    "Worst narration ever"

    I am a fan of William Dietrich. This review is not directed at the book but at the quality of the narration. At one point Robert Fass' attempt at a German accent sounded like Kermit the Frog. Horrible. I couldn't take it anymore and stopped listening.
