The stalwart GP over at Pacific Paratrooper Blog has posted a review of my WWII historical novel, In the Mouth of the Lion. As the German blitzkrieg stalls in Russia, Hitler’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic. The German High Command (OKW) suspects he is becoming mentally unbalanced and approaches Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung for an evaluation of the Führer’s sanity.
The OKW doesn’t realize that Jung’s close associate, Mary Bancroft, is an OSS analyst working for Allen Dulles in Bern, Switzerland. Dulles asks Jung to bring back Hitler’s darkest secrets, making the trip much more dangerous.
In the Mouth of the Lion contains information and conjecture not found anywhere else, including a new candidate for Hitler’s mystery grandfather, why Hitler murdered his niece/girlfriend, and how he got away with it. The psychology behind the Holocaust is also revealed.
