Product Description

Sixty years ago, the greatest crime against humanity was committed. Today it's only a heartbeat away from happening again.

In Paraguay, a young reporter is found brutally murdered. In Berlin, a political activist is gunned down in the street. In Strasbourg, an international policeman is given the name of a beautiful young German woman-and the first key to an extraordinary political plot.

Joseph Volkmann knows that a string of killings around the world are linked by a single purpose. And he knows that Erica Kranz, whose journalist cousin had stumbled on the story, is linked to the plan. Haunted by the ghosts of the past, driven by the specter of the future, Volkmann and Kranz are about to plunge through a realm of terrorism, fanaticism, and deception as they stare at the true face of evil.

Publisher's Description

A secret that must never be revealed. . . .

An evil never meant to be repeated. . . .

Seventy years ago, the greatest crime against humanity was committed.

Today it’s only a heartbeat away from happening again.

In Paraguay, an elderly businessman kills himself. In Berlin, a neo-Nazi is gunned down in the street.

Trying to connect the murders, intelligence agent Joe Volkmann, aided by a beautiful young German journalist, travels to Paraguay and discovers a clue—the charred remains of an old black-and-white photograph in a remote jungle house. A photograph that holds the first key to an extraordinary secret—and a plot to create the Fourth Reich.

Volkmann soon uncovers that a string of bizarre killings around the world are all linked by a single purpose. And he also discovers that the journalist he trusted, Erica Kranz, is somehow linked to the plan.

Haunted by the ghosts of the past, and desperate to unearth an extraordinary secret, Volkmann and Kranz are plunged into a dangerous world of terrorism, fanaticism, and deception as they stare true evil in the face.

    This review was written for Brandenburg.
    Glenn Meade in his new book, "Brandenburg" published by Howard Books gives us a global conspiracy thriller.

    From the back cover: A secret that must never be revealed. . . .

    An evil never meant to be repeated. . . .

    Seventy years ago, the greatest crime against humanity was committed.

    Today it's only a heartbeat away from happening again.

    In Paraguay, an elderly businessman kills himself. In Berlin, a neo-Nazi is gunned down in the street.

    Trying to connect the murders, intelligence agent Joe Volkmann, aided by a beautiful young German journalist, travels to Paraguay and discovers a clue--the charred remains of an old black-and-white photograph in a remote jungle house. A photograph that holds the first key to an extraordinary secret--and a plot to create the Fourth Reich.

    Volkmann soon uncovers that a string of bizarre killings around the world are all linked by a single purpose. And he also discovers that the journalist he trusted, Erica Kranz, is somehow linked to the plan.

    Haunted by the ghosts of the past, and desperate to unearth an extraordinary secret, Volkmann and Kranz are plunged into a dangerous world of terrorism, fanaticism, and deception as they stare true evil in the face.

    I love history and Glenn Meade knows how to blend history and fiction together to the point where you don't know where one ends and the other begins. Mr. Meade tells us that this story was actually told him by an elderly SS man about an order he carried out in 1941. That event led to the writing of "Brandenburg". We switch back and forth between the present and WWII as Joe and Erica run around the world trying to solve the mystery and stop the body count from rising. Glenn Meade has given us a thriller as he practically puts the lives of Joe and Erica in danger from page one. Questions upon questions, deceit and betrayal will keep you guessing and flipping pages as fast as you can read. Adventure, action, and a tinge of romance all packed inside a high octane, roller coaster ride of excitement. So buckle yourself in and enjoy it. I recommend this book highly.

    This review was written for Brandenburg.
    If you're looking for a great book that is almost guaranteed to keep you quite literally on the edge of your seat until you turn the final pages, then this is the perfect book for you. Inspired by a story the author learned about while researching a newspaper article for the Times,, he stumbled across a story told to him by an elderly former SS man who shared a wartime story.

    Using the historical timeline in dealing with Nazi Germany under Hitler's command, the storyline tells what might have happened if Hitler has a secret that he would stop at nothing to protect. What if he had his own niece killed in order to hide the fact that she had fathered a child by him, a child who survived and might still be living today. This is just the premise behind author Glenn Meade's second novel, Brandenburg. This novel will take you all over the world as the story continues to unravel and the secrets are being exposed to the light. This novel will take you into the neo-Nazis in Berlin today that continue to boast about their violence, their hatred of immigrants and their denial of the Holocaust as well as looking back into history seventy years ago to see how far some went to try to cover up what they didn't want others to know and why.

    Joseph Volkman and his journalist cousin, Erica Kranz are about to plunge into a world of terrorism, fanaticism, and deception as they stare at the true face of evil while unraveling the political plots happening in Paraquay and Berlin. It's hard for them to realize the Nazi's biding time in South America to hatch a viable plot to take over contemporary Germany and just what the link to the past has to do with their investigation now. This one will leave you in anticipation to see just how far this will go and have you rethinking current world events today. By the end, you are hoping for a sequel some time in the very near future by author Glenn Meade.

    I received Brandenburg by Glenn Meade compliments of Howard Books, a division of Simon and Schuster Publishers for my honest review and received no monetary compensation for a favorable one. This is my second novel by Glenn Meade and being a huge lover of history, I couldn't wait to see how he would unravel this one. I was not disappointed. Part action adventure, part historical fiction laced through and through with pure adrenaline and suspense, I had to keep going until I was done. I loved the blending of timelines from World War II to present day, it gives the reader time to pause and consider the implications of such a thing happening again. There is a discussion guide in the back that makes this one a perfect novel for book clubs as well as the authors insights into writing this novel. You can even get a sneak peek at Second Messiah, his previous novel if you haven't read that one yet. I rate this one a 4.5 out of 5 stars and will be looking forward to more by Glenn Meade in the very near future.

    This review was written for Brandenburg.
    In this novel of international intrigue, Meade has created a world where descendants of the Nazi elite want to restore Germany to the strength it knew under Hitler. They adhere to the oath made to Hitler and the Reich to sacrifice everything to perpetuate the Nazi ideals and create a Fourth Reich.

    Like the conspiracy, the novel is complex. The action begins in Paraguay as a journalist investigates seemingly unrelated murders. When he is found dead, his cousin in Germany, Erica Kranz, approaches the Direction de Securite Europeenne. The DSE had been created by the European Union to be the equivalent of the Untied States' FBI with investigative powers that crossed national borders.

    DSE agent Joe Volkmann interviews Erica in Frankfurt and the two of them travel to Paraguay to investigate. They find an old torn photograph showing a woman next to what appears to be a Nazi. They return to Europe, continuing the investigation.

    The conspiracy is wide spread and the reader discovers the breadth of the intrigue as the novel continues. Added to the action is the tension between Joe, whose family was terrorized by the Nazis, and Erica, whose father was one of those Nazis.

    Some aspects of the fictional conspiracy to resurrect a Reich is based on historical fact, as Meade notes in an afterward.

    This is a rewarding novel for those who like Ludlum or Le Carre. There is a good combination of international intrigue and character thought and development. We see how the ghosts of the past influence the actions of both the investigators and the conspirators. The suspense is continuous and heightens at the end.

    My thoughts:

    While this novel is under the "Christian" imprint of Howard Books, Christianity is not a part of this novel. As a Christian bookstore owner, I remember when Howard Books, an independent Christian publishing company established in 1969, was acquired by Simon & Schuster in 2006. I think it reasonable to expect novels released under this imprint to have some Christian aspect to distinguish it from other releases from Simon & Schuster. That is not the case here.

    Also, this is Meade's first novel that was originally printed in England in 1994 and then in the U.S. in 1998. While the plot and writing are both well done, I think the conspiracy itself, the resurrection of the German Reich, is a bit dated and is beyond reasonable credibility. If you like a novel about what might have happened a couple of decades ago, then this is a good choice.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
