A short story released to tie in with the full length novel [b:The Jefferson Key|10503124|The Jefferson Key (Cotton Malone, #7)|Steve Berry|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1320461212s/10503124.jpg|15408919]. This story introduces the character Jonathan Wyatt as he tracks down his former boss who turned against him and helped end his career.

Set in Argentina the story revolves around the remnants of the Third Reich with some Nazi's who escaped justice. For a Steve Berry book the action is virtually non-existant and the dialogue is heavy. A quick read I only read it as it is part of the ongoing Cotton Malone series. ( )

This is a short story (about 80 Kindle pages) but proposes a novel end to Hitler's final days and an escape of Eva Braun (after giving birth to Hitler's son who was spirited away before she was able to see him) and the charge to Bormann for helping Braun escape and both making their way to Argentina. Bormann fathered another son with Braun and they raised him in Argentina. Bormann collected the treasure that had been secreted across the world by Hitler and his henchmen placing a large stash of valuable artifacts, art and gold in a citadel build for that purpose in Argentina. This story was told through the eyes of couple of American intelligence operatives, one seeking Nazi treasure that was reputed to be cached in South American and the other an operative that had been discredited some years prior and was following the first Operative seeking revenge. For a short story, a number of interrelated characters are presented and they work together or at odds as the short story charges to an eventful conclusion. This plausible twist to history is fast paced, exciting and worth the pleasurable effort to read. Enjoy! ( )
