Description

The worldwide phenomenon from the bestselling author of Fall of Giants, Winter of the World, and Edge of Eternity.
His code name was -The Needle.- He was a German aristocrat of extraordinary intelligence--a master spy with a legacy of violence in his blood, and the object of the most desperate manhunt in history. . . .
But his fate lay in the hands of a young and vulnerable English woman, whose loyalty, if swayed, would assure his freedom--and win the war for the Nazis. . . .
