The Bleiberg Project
An adrenaline-packed ride to save the world from a conspiracy straight out of the darkest hours of history.
Are Hitler’s atrocities really over?
1942, Poland. The head of the SS meets secretly with a scientist in charge of a major Third Reich project.
Present day. After another late night with yet another woman whose name he doesn’t remember, self-pitying golden boy trader Jay Novacek learns that his long-lost father has died, precipitating events that lead him to board a plane to Zurich. He’s got a Nazi medallion in his pocket, a hot CIA bodyguard next to him, and a clearly dangerous Mossad agent on his tail. What was his father investigating? Why was his mother assassinated? Far from his posh apartment, he races to save the world from a horrific conspiracy. Can it be stopped?
