One morning in Munich, on September 19th, 1931, Adolf Hitler’s 23 year old girlfriend, Geli Raubal, was found dead in her room, the windows and door locked, her key on the inside. On a couch beside her lay Hitler’s small caliber pistol. Hitler had left Munich the day before and had been seen that same afternoon in Nuremberg by many witnesses. Munich officials quickly ruled that Geli’s death was due to suicide, and that’s where it has remained for 85 years.

My historical novel, In the Mouth of the Lion, now reveals exactly how Geli was murdered and, more important, by whom and why. The ultimate reason for the Holocaust is also disclosed. For more information, please visit the book’s website:

[Geli’s room was one of the 3rd floor (American reckoning) rooms that jut out from the building, most likely the one on the right, based on a floor plan I’ve seen. After her death, Hitler ordered the room kept locked, more or less as Geli left it. It wasn’t reopened until the Americans arrived in 1945.] See
