Summary
She's risking her life to save a man she doesn't know. But whom can she trust along the way? It is August 1944 and the Gestapo is mercilessly rounding up suspected enemies of the Third Reich after an attempt on Hitler's life. Gabi Mueller is a young woman working for the newly formed American Office of Strategic Services (the forerunner to the CIA) in Switzerland. When she is asked to put herself in harm's way to safely "courier" a German scientist who is working on the atomic bomb out of enemy territory, the fate of the world hangs in the balance
Summary
After Joseph Engel, a German physicist working on an atomic bomb, finds out he is actually a Jew who was adopted by Christian parents, he places his life in the hands of Gabi Mueller, a young Swiss-American who must risk her life to safely escort Engel to safety
