On the eve of World War II, under orders from SS Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler, explorer Kurt Raeder sets out for the Tibetan mountains in search of a legendary energy source that could ensure the ultimate Nazi victory. Only American zoologist Benjamin Hood, together with aviatrix Beth Calloway, can stop Raeder and his team before the tides of history run red with blood.

Review by Library Journal (2011-06-10)

The author of the popular Ethan Gage historical adventure novels (The Barbary Pirates) now switches gears with this ingenious stand-alone thriller that spans two time periods. In present-day Seattle, a young women is saved from a car explosion by a mysterious young journalist who professes to know her true identity. Or is this a kidnapping? In 1938 Germany, Heinrich Himmler orders explorer Kurt Raeder to find the fabled source of power and immortality in Tibet.

At the same time zoologist Benjamin Hood is ordered to find out what the Germans are doing in Tibet and stop them. The two mysteries-a furious race to stop the unleashing of an incredible power-play out in tandem. Courageous, fierce characters populate the story, but love, trust, and friendship are called into question.

Verdict: Dietrich has created a wonderful web of intrigue, using history, vibrantly depicted settings, and great character development that leaves the reader unsure of whom to trust until the very end. Fans of Raiders of the Lost Ark and other thrilling tales of historic and scientific adventure will definitely add this to their holds list.
