In early 1944, the shadows of defeat are stretching over Nazi Germany, but deep within the Third Reich, Hitler's scientists successfully test a new weapon of incredible power- an atomic bomb. Allied intelligence reports indicate more of these weapons will soon be assembled and loaded aboard a German U-boat. The submarine's mission is uncomplicated-destroy London and bring the Allies to their knees. A team of American operatives is formed to hijack the U-boat and it's deadly cargo but Roosevelt and Churchill know the odds of the mission succeeding are next to impossible. In an astonishing wartime twist of fate, a German officer, thought to be dead, inexplicably reappears and is brought to London for interrogation. Is he a clever agent sent by the Gestapo to mislead the Allies, or the one man who can take the team deep behind enemy lines, through the rampant paranoia of the Nazi regime and onto the submarine without arousing suspicion? An alternate history adventure with an impeccable sense of time and place, William Cone's debut is an action-packed, white-knuckled thriller that is as relentless as it is entertaining. A riveting tale of intrigue, valor and sacrifice, DEAD RINGER presents the desperate struggle of a world on the brink and those who risk everything to save it. Join the team as they race through the danger of war torn Europe towards a final explosive confrontation with the Fuhrer himself.
