Pale Saint Judas

By Ronald Paul Speakes

Crime & mystery, Thriller, Literary fiction | eBook


In this edgy international mystery, the American philanthropist Richard Palgrave is strangely approached on a train from Paris to Bonn by Friedrich von Hinsdorff, who despite being a former Nazi officer also had wartime connections to the resistance movements in Poland and France. Now, so many years later, this distinguished German asks almost surreptitiously for Palgrave’s help in finding his lover from WWII and their daughter whom he has never met. Palgrave agrees but later learns there is much more to this request: it involves The New Reich Group (that includes American members) whose grim goals include reviving the Third Reich and eliminating anyone who opposes their cause. Key also, Palgrave learns, is helping von Hinsdorff to return Nazi-confiscated art to the rightful owners. His efforts take him into the heart of Europe where he movingly encounters the horrors of the Holocaust through its legacy. A fast-paced novel about personal identity and the indomitability of the human spirit. And a cast of characters you will never forget. This is book three of the Swan-Knight Series but can be read as a stand-alone work.
