Historical Fiction – The Nibelungen Hoard

The Nibelungen HoardThe Nibelungen Hoard
By Edwin M. Todd
Publisher: ET3 Publishing
Published: November 2014

In the last days of World War II, SS lieutenant Johann von Ritter is dispatched on a mission to deliver a strongbox to the port of Stettin. But, feeling betrayed and disgusted by the Nazi leadership, he disobeys orders and hides the treasure instead. Knowing he isn’t going to make it, he leaves clues to the strongbox’s location in two letters—one to his sister and one entrusted to Lena Mueller, the nurse who bears him a child he never knows.

Almost fifty years later, during the fall of the Berlin Wall, American Christoph Mueller inherits one of Ritter’s letters from his dying grandmother. The contents of the yellowed missive plunge Mueller into a dangerous world.

Aided by Kurt Webber, a longtime friend of his grandmother’s, Mueller finds himself on the run while Communist East Germany crumbles around him. He’s the last to know the secret he holds as he’s seduced by a Stasi informer and stalked by a murderous descendant of von Ritter’s sister.

Set against the background of twentieth-century Berlin’s most significant moments, The Nibelungen Hoard weaves historical facts and personages with riveting fiction, resulting in a dramatic tale of epic proportions.

Historical Mystery – Death of a Diva: From Berlin to Broadway

Death of a DivaDeath of a Diva: From Berlin to Broadway
By Brigitte Goldstein
Publisher: Pierredor Books
Published: September 2014
ISBN: 978-0692246665
ASIN: B00O3GWB3G
Genre: Historical Mystery
Formats Available For Review: print (limited quantities, available only to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.) and ebook

A veteran actress’s brutal murder at a Broadway theater in 1941 sets off a police investigation that reaches back to pre-WWI Vienna and 1920s Berlin in Brigitte Goldstein’s densely plotted noir mystery novel, Death of a Diva.

In 1941 New York, the murder on Broadway of Stella Berger, famed star of screen and stage of Weimar Germany and outspoken critic of the Nazi regime which had forced her into exile, sends shock waves through the American public.

The police act quickly, and the prime suspect, an emigrant street musician, is tried and put on death row. But Misia Safran, a young Jewish refugee from Germany and part-time employee at the theater who becomes inadvertently involved in the investigation, is haunted by the possibility of his innocence and a suspicion that there’s more to the case than meets the eye.

Determined to uncover the truth, Misia delves into Stella’s background. She patches together the life of the revered actress from testimony by those who had been closest to her throughout her rise to stardom. From accounts of her humble origins in a Viennese ghetto to her rise to the pinnacle in the acting world of 1920’s Berlin, to her battle with Nazi propagandist Josef Goebbels, emerges the portrait of a woman of great strength of character and resolve, albeit one that conceals a vulnerable side which ultimately may have been the cause of her undoing. As Misia cuts through a bewildering thicket of lies, hidden agendas, and deceptions, she is met with intimations of a deep secret in Stella’s past, evidence of which may be stored in the vault of a Swiss bank. If made public, this secret could provide the clue to the mystery, but could also destroy the star’s carefully guarded public persona.
