Publisher's Summary

No work of fiction or nonfiction has done what Case White does in this monumental new novel by USA Today best-selling author Thomas Sullivan.

Set in the era of two world wars, this comprehensive work weaves together the bizarre mythology and eccentric beliefs that explain how a nation went insane for 12 years. Told through the compelling lives and loves of a pair of very unique characters, this tour de force will take you into a radical blend of religion and myth frighteningly similar to what is going on in parts of the world today.

Certain to be a benchmark work of elegantly written fiction and historical perspective, Case White delivers a poignant people story played out on a grand stage.

History from another angle

The subject matter here starts with the death of Jesus Christ. Aside from the ideology and mythology that surrounds Jesus himself This book takes us on a journey through an object that was touched by the body of Christ. The relentless obsession to possess this object has often been the subject of discussion For many years. But when it came in to the hands of the 3rd Reich is the backbone of the story that is presented here. The many hours it takes to get to the end of the story Gives you the chance to enjoy the wonderful tons of Joshua Saxon as he narrates This bit of Historical mythology Combined with Evidence of who possessed what at what time...And the cause and effect of that possession. Joshua Saxon with narration is as always spot on, in my opinion, listening to him read the words and picturing in ones mind the painted scene that the author has created. I suggest that you listen to the book over the course of a long weekend rather than in bits and pieces here in there because you will find yourself lost as to not hear the story almost from beginning to end.

What an interesting listen.

This was such a beautifully written story about a horrible time. There were so many sad moments throughout, yet the author used such imagery that it wasn't possible to stop listening because, with all the craziness surrounding Hitler, I couldn't wait for him to be killed, and preferably in a horrible way. It left me thinking about how people could have gone along with him when he was obviously crazy. Some of the things he did, to children, it blows my mind that others would have been fine with it. I've only ever read one other story relating to Hitler and the atrocities he performed on Jewish people (this was about what specifically he did) and I guess that kind of left me not wanting to hear more about his "experiments." Needless to say, the narrator, Joshua Saxton, suggested I give this a listen (I haven't had any complaints about the stories he's narrated), so I was up for it. I'm always a fan of multiple POV's so it was... I don't want to say entertaining, that seems the wrong word, but I was curious as to how Joseph and Micah would come together. I loved the mythology aspects and the crazy ideals the Nazis went along with; given the number of people Hitler killed, it's easy to imagine him as being the antichrist.

Powerful insight into a disturbing history.

The Myths, Megalomania, and Motivations behind a recent attempt to change world order unlike anything Ive ever read before. Like looking through a keyhole into a disturbing history while wondering what parallels may be happening around us today. Thomas Sullivan's story shook my very humanity to the bone, while Joshua Saxon's superb vocal performance was the "boomstick" which delivered it. A story I'll not soon forget...if ever.

Very difficult to follow

Book as hard to follow the narrator didn’t hold my attention and I’m at the point I really don’t know what’s going on in the book by chapter 5 I don’t often give up on books but this one I’m not finding a point to go on "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.”

Engrossing Historical Fiction Superbly Narrated

Case White by Thomas Sullivan is an extremely impressive historical fiction novel about the rise of the Nazis and their obsessive quest for ancient relics. I starting this audiobook not knowing too much about the story, but decided to give it a go because it was performed by my favourite audiobook narrator. I was not disappointed. The book is superbly written with an intimate and elegant style that really delves into the characters thoughts and feelings. Though definitely not an easy listen due to some of the horrific events in the story, I was completely gripped throughout. Joshua Saxon's narration was typically brilliant. He's a natural storyteller with a classy delivery. It's always a pleasure to listen to a performance by someone who is in complete control of the material. I have Austrian heritage and I found his accents and pronunciations really authentic. Another first class presentation from the folks at Crossroad Press. Highly recommended.

A chilling, compulsive masterpiece

I won't give a summary of the story of this wonderful book as you can read it in the blurb. It is beautifully and horrifyingly written, blending fact and fiction seamlessly in a way that makes the unthinkable both more and less believable; more fantastical, more sordid and more mundane. I would strongly recommend this novel, distressing to read though it is, to everybody. Actually, because it's distressing as, despite all the 'lest we forget's, we once again seem to be headed in a similar direction. As for the narrator: Joshua Saxon has excelled himself. Since I discovered his narration I have followed it from book to book and discovered several wonderful authors who are new to me. He didn't disappoint this time, in fact it's perhaps my favourite narration of his to date. He deserves to be widely known as a storyteller. He is utterly compelling.

"Circles of destiny like gears in a watch case."

Case White by Thomas Sullivan is a stunning book, so beautifully written it is a joy just to bathe in the prose despite the often unpleasantness of what is being so meticulously described, be it individuals, places or ideas. After meticulous research, this amazing book explores the bizarre mythology and eccentric beliefs founded in the concepts of power, reincarnation and the coming of the anti Christ which, at least in part, drove Hitler and those in his close circle to seek to build a new world of supermen. Told through the lives and loves of two very disparate characters, the book travels in time from before Hitler's rise to power, through the second world war to his death. This is a book unlike the usual 30's and 40's novel set in Germany. It is not about the political scene and the horrors of death camps, although these do occur - how could they not? But instead is based around the supernatural, the strange beliefs which so built the feelings of confidence, inevitability and superiority of those leaders who plunged Germany into a a World War. Simply fascinating and a thrilling read. And narrated with perfection by Joshua Saxon, whose delivery was well paced, clear and perfectly intoned. An excellent performance. I was very fortunate in being freely gifted with a complimentary copy of Case White, at my request, by the rights holder via Audiobook Boom. Thank you so much. This is a strange look at the reasons behind one of the most devastating eras of the twentieth century and will definitely make me look differently at current happenings. A thriller, an history and a look back in time and mythology all rolled into a book of personal obsessions. Everyone should read this, though, be warned, at 14 hours, it is quite long. But never a dull minute.
