Bremen Germany 1978. Karl Becker, a business prodigy, has just become the youngest senior vice president in company history. But his sights are set higher; Karl wants to replace the current CEO when he retires. During World War II Karl's mother, Eva, was a devoted member of the Nazi party. When her entire family became collateral damage during a bombing raid, she began a vendetta against all Americans, past and present. In time Eva marries and gives birth to a baby boy. Proud of her Aryan progeny, she does everything she can to indoctrinate him in Nazi ideology-but fails. As far as Karl is concerned that was in the past and something every German should be ashamed of. Eva is heartbroken and doesn't know it yet; but fate is about to deal her another blow. During a business trip to Seattle, Karl meets a beautiful young woman named Carol Barton and it wasn't long before they fell in love. When Eva finds out her son is planning to marry an American she becomes incensed and does everything she can to break up their engagement-but fails. Undeterred Eva continues to chip away at their marriage. Then a mysterious stranger, Bruno Schmidt, enters Eva's life and solicits her help in a sinister plan to revenge Germany's defeat. Intrigue, murder and the unexpected-all wrapped up in a spell binding tale that spans World War II and the close of the twentieth century.
