Description

From the number one international bestselling author of "The Righteous Men" and "The Last Testament" comes a chilling thriller about a clandestine brotherhood and a sixty-year-old secret--the last great mystery of World War II. Tom Byrne has come a long way since his days as an idealistic young lawyer. Now he'll work for anyone--as long as the money's right. So when a UN official asks him to take on a dubious job, he accepts. A suspected suicide bomber shot by UN security staff has turned out to be a harmless old man, and Tom must placate the family. But it soon emerges that the victim was not quite the innocent man he seemed to be. Alongside the dead man's daughter, Rebecca, Tom discovers a hidden brotherhood united in a worldwide mission that has caused hundreds of unexplained deaths. Pursued by those ready to kill to stop him, Tom must unlock a secret buried for more than sixty years--the last great secret of the Second World War. Based on the true story of a group of Holocaust survivors who sought revenge for Nazi crimes, "The Final Reckoning" is an atmospheric, emotionally engaging, and twisting thriller that moves at light speed from the first page to the last.

Review quote

By alternating between the past and the present, Bourne has crafted a dark and intensely gripping thriller that vividly captures the emotional maelstrom and physical destruction of World War II Europe. His latest will stay with readers long after they have closed the book. --Library Journal (starred review)
