Description - The Eye of the Abyss by Marshall Browne

It is Germany, 1938, and Franz Schmidt is the chief auditor in a commercial bank. But as Schmidt will soon learn, the bank's prestigious new client, the Nazi party, is its least desirable. Schmidt will oversee their account, and soon, he is embroiled in the duplicity, violence and horror that is Nazi Germany. Schmidt can't help but be involved, and the first victim of the harsh realities of politics is a Jewish secretary whom Franz tries to help. As Schmidt finds himself caught up in dangerous political machinations, he also finds himself, as the result of an act of compassion, under deadly suspicion. Eventually, Franz's world explodes. Franz must act, and he seeks revenge on those responsible by attempting a massive fraud on the Party itself. In The Eye of the Abyss, Marshall Browne crafts an intelligent historical thriller with a riveting pace and spellbinding plot.
