Historical Fiction For Review

The Nibelungen Hoard
By Edwin M. Todd
Publisher: ET3 Publishing
Published: November 2014
ISBN: 978-0692288566
Genre: Historical Fiction, Historical Mystery
Formats Available For Review: print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.), kindle

In the last days of World War II, SS lieutenant Johann von Ritter is dispatched on a mission to deliver a strongbox to the port of Stettin. But, feeling betrayed and disgusted by the Nazi leadership, he disobeys orders and hides the treasure instead. Knowing he isn’t going to make it, he leaves clues to the strongbox’s location in two letters—one to his sister and one entrusted to Lena Mueller, the nurse who bears him a child he never knows.

Almost fifty years later, during the fall of the Berlin Wall, American Christoph Mueller inherits one of Ritter’s letters from his dying grandmother. The contents of the yellowed missive plunge Mueller into a dangerous world.

Aided by Kurt Webber, a longtime friend of his grandmother’s, Mueller finds himself on the run while Communist East Germany crumbles around him. He’s the last to know the secret he holds as he’s seduced by a Stasi informer and stalked by a murderous descendant of von Ritter’s sister.

Set against the background of twentieth-century Berlin’s most significant moments, The Nibelungen Hoard weaves historical facts and personages with riveting fiction, resulting in a dramatic tale of epic proportions.
