FOR MALICE AND MERCY: A World War II Novel
By Gary W. Toyn
A meticulously researched World War II family saga inspired by actual events, about a German-American family from Utah. The parents are targeted as Nazi sympathizers, sent to an internment camp then forcefully deported to Germany as pawns in FDRs top-secret prisoner swap with the Third Reich. When their son’s B-17 is shot down over Germany, his ability to speak fluent German helps him evade capture. When the Gestapo is on his trail, he’s pursued as a spy and faces certain death if they can catch him. His life depends on the daring plan of two unlikely collaborators, but his family may never see him again.
