Midnight in Berlin

James MacManus, MA 1966

Berlin in the spring of 1939. Hitler is preparing for war. Colonel Noel Macrae, a British diplomat, plans the ultimate sacrifice to stop him. The West's appeasement policies have failed. There is only one alternative: assassination. 

The Gestapo, aware of Macrae's hostility seeks to compromise him in their infamous brothel, the Salon Kitty. There Macrae meets and falls in love with Sara Sternschein, a Jewish woman blackmailed into becoming a Nazi courtesan. 

Macrae finds himself trapped between the blind policies of his government and the dark world of betrayal and deception in Berlin. As he seeks to save the women he loves from the brutality of the Gestapo he defies his government and plans rogue action to avert what he knows will be a global war.
