In 1934 talented Germans - including Marlene Dietrich - have begun to flee the Third Reich. Yet Sara Potter, an American actress, has gone to Germany to star in what turns out to be a propaganda film. Why? Paramount boss, Adolph Zukor, sends detective Michael Temple to bring Potter home before she tarnishes her career. Althought the novel unfolds like a thriller and provides a who-done-it to unravel, at the heart of the story are national rivalries, Nazi rivalries, moral dilemmas, and family mysteries. From high society to the unwashed, and from Nazi bigwigs to their opponants, the book vividly portrays Berlin during the months Hitler solidified his hold on power. While questions about morality, duty, honor, and loyality abound, ask yourself this. How far would you go to save a loved one?  Chasing Dietrich was designated one of the Best Books of 2012 by Kirkus Reviews.
