“X-Files meets Sam Spade in a mashup of hardboiled noir, WWII intrigue, and sci-fi/UFO conspiracy”
While a covert alien technology battle rages between global powers on the eve of World War II, a private detective with something to prove finds himself smack in the middle of the deadly fight.
Karol Eugen Richter, aka Geno Richter, is a tough Los Angeles gumshoe of German heritage whose fists and Colt pistol have helped him solve most cases. But when a flying saucer crashes in Germany’s Black Forest in 1936, Richter must change if he expects to survive his latest—and most mysterious—case.
An immigrant with something to prove, Richter finds himself enmeshed in a race between world powers to exploit alien technology in time for a hot war that looms just over the horizon and for a future that begs dominance.
Richter wages the secret war armed with street smarts, fists, and bullets. He’ll skirmish with enemies in the City of Angels and beyond, and ultimately, in the heart of Berlin itself. As he begins to piece together the true meaning of the war, Richter will fight not just for himself and his country, but also for the future of Earth itself.
