Three unlikely allies.A desperate pursuit across Europe. A document to change the outcome of World War II.In September 1942, Hitler orders a final offensive to capture Stalingrad. Yet three weeks later, the German assault suddenly—inexplicably—stops. As silence falls over the eastern front, an American airman, a Russian major, and a Swiss journalist uncover secret negotiations between Germany and Russia for a second non-aggression Pact—a truce that would open the floodgates for German domination of the Western world. They race to find the mysterious document that holds the key to the negotiations. But they’re not the only ones in pursuit, and time is running out.
