Waiting for minimum critic reviews


XPD means expedient demise: if these letters appear on your file, you're as good as dead--and anyone who learns about a secret meeting between Churchill and Hitler instantly earns that stamp. When Hitler's minutes of the meeting threaten to surface, the MI6, CIA, KGB, and a group of influential German businessmen-each with their own motives--are drawn into a relentless search that leads them from Hamburg to Hollywood. And they'll all stop at nothing to get what they want.
