Fiction

Zlata, a novelist now living in the safety of North America is determined to uncover proof that the strife of her childhood and the brutal, senseless death of her own family and many of her Serb and Croat countrymen so long ago was instigated by Hitler's SS men committing atrocities while masquerading as one side or the other in a successful attempt to create infighting and weaken the country's resistance.

While doing so, she uncovers a plot by two aging former SS officers to resurrect Adolph Hitler with a dark magic ritual using one of their bodies as a vessel to hold the maniacal dictator's spirit, so that he can rebuild his movement using remnants of the SS who anxiously await the re-activation of their leader.

To discover the means to stop the sinister plan, Zlata must cooperate with an unlikely group of companions, including her lawyer husband, a police detective, a freelance psychic, and a pretty young forensic pathologist who struggles to accept the truth of the endeavor since its very nature conflicts with her core scientific and rational beliefs.

At the same time, the group is dogged by a suspicious police Captain who while dealing with his own personal problems including a moribund career and alcoholic wife, is convinced the group intends to commit some crime and is not satisfied with the secret informant he's planted in their midst, all the while struggling with the sexual tension between himself and the pretty pathologist.

The group must use their combined logic, science, and methods beyond science as they race in an attempt to thwart the dark conspiracy from wreaking havoc upon the world once again.

It was 1983 and life in Canada was pleasant. Zlata was happy that she no longer had to live in the wretchedness and unhappiness of her old hometown. Days like this made it worthwhile for her to be alive and it made her grateful that she made it through the hardships she had faced. She was a Canadian citizen now, and had been for the last thirty years. She would never go back there; not after all that she had gone through. There was nothing left over there for her anyway.

It was 1983 and life in Canada was pleasant. Zlata was happy that she no longer had to live in the wretchedness and unhappiness of her old hometown. Days like this made it worthwhile for her to be alive and it made her grateful that she made it through the hardships she had faced. She was a Canadian citizen now, and had been for the last thirty years. She would never go back there; not after all that she had gone through. There was nothing left over there for her anyway.

Zlata’s life was perfect. She had everything she could ever ask for – besides a perfect family—she also had a healthy career as an author. Nothing could be better. They had a beautiful house and a beautiful summer cabin. The family had even enjoyed lavish holidays, twice a year for many years with much celebration and plenty of food. Absolutely nothing could make this better.
Then the call came. It was very innocent at first. Zlata had no idea who the person was on the other end of the receiver. She was thinking that it was a prank or someone who didn’t understand English. At least that’s what she first thought.
“Hello?” Zlata answered the phone.
“’Allo?”
“Who is this?”
“Eh?”
“I said, who is this?”
Some rustling on the phone, then nothing.
“If this is a prank, then please go away. I have had enough of you people harassing me. I’ve had to change this phone number five times in the last two years and quite frankly I have no comment on any of your questions. Have some decency and please leave me alone!”
As she was about to hang up she heard a voice yell through the receiver. She was not exactly sure what the voice said, but it sounded like, “No! Please!”
Zlata put the phone to her ear and said, “I’m listening, but not for long, so please keep this short. I am a very busy woman and I don’t like to waste my time.”

An old friend enters Zlata's life turning all that she once knew upside down. Her brother, once thought to have had died via enemy hands, had actually been an accidental decoy--saving the life of another man that should have been killed.

Zlata is taken through a journey along with her own accidental companions to uncover the beginnings of a mystery and conspiracy only few know about...


Excerpt

For years, Canadian novelist Zlata Pierce remembered the horrible day when her Croatian family died at the hands of Hitler’s SS during World War II. Just when she thought she had put it behind her, a mysterious phone call from her homeland unearths her memories and starts her on a perilous journey to uncover the truth.

Zlata learns from her informant that Hitler’s SS masqueraded as Serbs and Croatians, committing atrocities to create infighting and weaken the country’s resistance during the war. Acting on her information, Zlata soon discovers that two of the former SS officers are alive. Even worse, they are trying to resurrect Hitler with an evil magic ritual. Once Hitler is back, he will be able to rebuild his Nazi movement using remnants of the SS.

To stop the sinister plan, Zlata must cooperate with an unlikely group of companions, including her lawyer husband, a police detective, a psychic, and a young forensic pathologist. Using their combined logic, science, and even the supernatural, the group fights to stop the dark conspiracy before Hitler wreaks havoc upon the world once again.
