American Adam Nowak has been dropped into Poland by British intelligence as an assassin and Resistance fighter. During the Warsaw Uprising he meets Natalia, a covert operative who has lost everything?just as he has. Amid the Allied power struggle left by Germany?s defeat, Adam and Natalia join in a desperate hunt for the 1940 Soviet order authorizing the murders of 20,000 Polish army officers and civilians. If they can find the Katyn Order before the Russians do, they just might change the fate of Poland.

WWII thriller about the Warsaw rising of 1944.The author does a great job capturing the feel of the war. Good involved plot.

This is historical fiction as it should be written. The characters came to life so that you almost believed they were real. Well researched, and I think, a fairly presented story of a very dark period in Poland. Having spent time in Warsaw, Krakow, and the Tatras, I found the details of the locations very well described.
