Set in America and Europe, David John's Flight from Berlin is a masterful blend of fact and fiction, drama and suspense--a riveting story of love, courage, and betrayal that culminates in a breathtaking race against the forces of evil.
August 1936: The eyes of the world are on Berlin, where Adolf Hitler is using the Olympic Games to showcase his powerful new regime. British journalist Richard Denham is determined to report the truth: that the carefully staged spectacle masks the Nazis' ruthless brutality. Sparks fly when the cynical newspaperman meets the beautiful and rebellious American socialite Eleanor Emerson, an athlete covering the Games as a celebrity columnist. Their chance encounter at a reception thrown by Joseph Goebbels leads them into a treacherous game of espionage. At stake: a mysterious dossier that threatens the leadership of the Third Reich. While Berlin welcomes the world, the Nazi capital becomes a terrifying place for Richard and Eleanor. Drawn together by danger and passion, they must execute a daring plan to survive. But one wrong move could be their last.
