I enjoyed the Memory Man but this story was not so good. Implausible plot and shallow characters. Could be that Baldacci has too many series going to crank out consistent winners.

It's 1942 and the Nazis are racing to be the first to build a weapon unlike any known before. They have the physicists, they have the uranium, and now all their plans depend on amassing a single ingredient: heavy water, which is produced in Norway's Vemork, the lone plant in all the world that makes this rare substance. Under threat of death, Vemork's engineers push production into overdrive. For the Allies, the plant must be destroyed.

I had known that the Nazis were pursuing an atomic bomb and the heavy water experiments but I did not know how big a role that resistance fighters had in thwarting the efforts. This handful of men changed the course of history and the detailed story of their struggle should be widely known.

Detective Harry Bosch has retired from the LAPD, but his half brother, defense attorney Mickey Haller, needs his help. The murder rap against his client seems ironclad, but Mickey is sure it's a setup. Though it goes against all his instincts, Bosch takes the case. With the secret help of his former LAPD partner, Lucia Soto, he turns the investigation inside the police department. But as Bosch gets closer to discovering the truth, he makes himself a target.
