By the author of the new novel The Preserve.
In the final winter of the war a failed German actor, Max Kaspar, is forced to join an absurdly desperate secret mission in which he must impersonate an enemy American officer. So Max cooks up his own fanatical plan—he'll use his false identity to escape tyranny and war and flee to the America he'd once abandoned.
The Losing Role is based on an actual false flag operation during 1944’s Battle of the Bulge that's been made infamous in legend but in reality was a doomed farce. In all the tragic details and with some dark humor, this is the story of an aspiring talent who got in over his head and tried to break free.
Part espionage thriller, part expatriate noir and the first book in the Kaspar Brothers series, The Losing Role is the prequel to Liberated: A Novel of Germany, 1945—Max is the estranged older brother of German-American US Army captain Harry Kaspar in Liberated. The Kaspar brothers reunite in the third book, Lost Kin.
This latest edition includes an excerpt of Liberated (Kaspar Brothers #2).
