All of this is munificently plotted and even if the characters don't have much flesh to go with the blood, who will notice. A possible Panavista?

Synopsis

Her weapons: money and power. Her target: the most dangerous man in the world—her own son. Elizabeth Wyckham Scarlatti has a plan, a desperate, last-minute gamble designed to save the world from her son, Ulster, an incalculably cruel man who is working for the Third Reich under the name of Heinrich Kroeger. If Elizabeth cannot stop him, Ulster will give Hitler the most powerful instrument on earth.

If you enjoy crime thrillers then I would recommend giving this book a read, although perhaps borrow it from the library rather than buy it.
