Twenty years ago John Cooper almost single-handedly shattered the underground rise of the Fourth Reich (The Wind Chill Factor, 1976). He now lives quietly in Boston, watching old movies in his theater, until he receives a plea for help from his estranged sister in Berlin, whose daughter is missing. Thus, Cooper heads back to Germany and into a maelstrom of murder and mayhem. Neo-Nazis roam the streets, and a billionaire industrialist named Wolf Koller-who just so happens to be married to Cooper's sister-offers a vision for a new, powerful Germany. Soon, Cooper and Koller are pitted against each other, for Lee Koller and her daughter are but pawns in Wolf's deadly game. Gifford has once again fashioned an absorbing, riveting, horrifyingly plausible tale. Readers looking for post-Cold War thrillers need look no further. Recommended for most fiction collections.-Dean James, Houston Acad. of Medicine/Texas Medical Ctr. Lib.
Gifford's sequel to The Wind Chill Factor again finds protagonist John Cooper up against a right-wing German plot for world domination. (Nov.)
