The Bleiberg Project (Consortium Thriller), by David Khara

"Early in Khara’s solid thriller, Jeremy Novacek, a Wall Street trader struggling with alcohol and personal issues, learns that his long-estranged father, Air Force Lt. Gen. Daniel J. Corbin, is dead. When Novacek tells his invalided mother the news, she hands him her locket and asks him to leave. Inside the locket is a tiny key embossed with a swastika. From an unexpected source Jay learns more about the key and his father. Soon, he’s on a plane to Zurich in the company of CIA agent Jackie Walls. Deadly Mossad agent Eytan Morg joins the action. Background passages describe a mysterious consortium that aided the rise of Hitler and abetted the medical experimentation performed by Nazis. Khara limns an incredible scenario in which the heinous activities of scientist Viktor Bleiberg reach out of the past to form a dire threat only an unlikely trio can deflect." -- Publishers Weekly

An adrenaline-packed ride to save the world from a horrific conspiracy straight out of the darkest hours of history.

Are Hitler’s atrocities really over? For depressive Wall Street trader Jeremy Corbin, absolute truths become undeniable lies overnight. He finds out his long-lost father is dead, he discovers his boss's real identity, and he ends up boarding a plane to Zurich. He has a Nazi medallion in his pocket, a hot CIA bodyguard next to him, and a clearly dangerous Mossad agent on his tail. What was his father investigating? Why was his mother assassinated? Why are unknown sides fighting over him with automatic weapons? Can the conspiracy be stopped? This fast-paced thriller full of humor and humanity was an instant sensation in France. Think a dash of Robin Cook, a splash of John Grisham, and pinch of Clive Cussler with a very distinctive voice all its own.
