A schoolteacher enters a war of shadows to save his daughter from the 3rd Reich David Ashby spent the last war killing Germans, and the years after falling in love with one. By the time Hitler comes to power, David has a half-German daughter, Karen, whom he loves more than life itself. So when Europe begins to slide toward war, and it becomes unsafe for an American to stay in the Fatherland, David does the only thing he can: He flees-and takes his daughter with him. David takes refuge in England, becoming a teaching master at a quiet country boarding school, and places Karen with friends on the Cornwall coast. But Hitler will not part with a daughter of the 3rd Reich so easily. German intelligence sends a sleeper, a dormant agent awakened, to finish off David and recover his child, drawing the mild-mannered schoolteacher-and the British intelligence services-into the thick of a secret war. Caught between 2 armies of spies, David will do whatever it takes to preserve Karen's freedom.

A hijacked delivery vehicle draws St-Cyr and Kohler back to the killing fields of World War I The last time Jean-Louis St-Cyr visited the ruins of this ancient abbey, during one of the bloodiest campaigns of the Great War, a sniper nearly killed him. Three decades later, death has brought him here again. Ever since the German occupation of France, the chief inspector has worked alongside German detective inspector Hermann Kohler, solving crimes too common to pique the Gestapo's interest. Now, during the fall of 1943, the war is going badly for the Third Reich, but conflicts continue to plague these two unlikely allies. A bank-owned cargo van is parked near the crumbling monastery, its contents ransacked, its passengers murdered. The killers took small bills but left behind a bounty in smuggled champagne, cheese, and coffee. Even more confounding is the expensive pair of high heels left behind. Were the thieves from the Resistance, or from the underworld? Who is the mysterious woman who was wearing those shoes? St-Cyr and Kohler have a feeling that the answers are hiding in the cold French rain.

Amid the ruins ofan abandoned Alsatian carnival, St-Cyr and Kohler investigate a pair of suspicious suicides During the Great War, Hermann Kohler and Jean-Louis St-Cyr fought in Alsace on opposite sides of the barbed wire. Two decades later, they return as partners: a Gestapo officer and a French cop investigating everyday crimes in a world gone mad with war. In February 1943, Alsace is unrecognizable-an occupied country where speaking French is all it takes to lose one's freedom. St-Cyr and Kohler have been summoned to a POW camp where soldiers and resistants manufacture textiles on the grounds of a deserted carnival. Where industry and warfare overlap, they will find a conspiracy worthy of the most twisted house of mirrors. Two prisoners of this garish, decrepit circus have killed themselves, and the jailers must at least make a show of finding out why. Although the trenches of the Great War are long gone, St-Cyr and Kohler find that in Alsace, the fires of battle smolder still. " Janes has a] sure grasp of period detail and a] seamless way of mixing fact and fiction." -Booklist "A master of the psychological thriller." -Midwest Book Review "Janes has effectively recreated a period of French history that is usually unacknowledged or swept under the rug. Original and gripping." -The Drood Review of Mystery J. Robert Janes (b. 1935) is a mystery author best known for writing historical thrillers.

A series of interlocking crimes send St-Cyr and Kohler into the heart of the Parisian underworld It is February 1943, and Paris is under a blackout. For three years, the French inspector Jean-Louis St-Cyr and Hermann Kohler of the Gestapo have investigated the mundane violence of Nazi-occupied France, but never have they experienced such a cold, sleeting winter. While investigating a burgled stamp collector's shop, they get a call telling them that they went to the wrong crime scene-they were supposed to have been sent to comfort a woman who was attacked for running around with Nazis and their collaborators. The rapist's timing was perfect-so perfect that the two detectives wonder if they were deliberately sent to the wrong place. They next follow up on a tip about a body dumped in a cellar. The young man they find has been stripped naked, savagely murdered, and left to rot. Was he a homosexual? A pimp? A Resistance fighter? Theft, murder, rape-conspiracy. It is just another night in Paris under the Nazis. "Janes hooks you quickly. You are drawn to the sympathetic characters of the two detectives. They are not the brutal policemen associated with wartime, but decent men in a world of brutality." -Spectator "One of the most unusual crime-fighting duos in detective fiction." -Mystery Review "Janes has effectively recreated a period of French history that is usually unacknowledged or swept under the rug.

In the wake of World War II, a Frenchwoman learns to live for vengeance In Geneva, a frail young woman sits down in a cafe. On her arm is a tattooed number-a souvenir from her time in Bergen-Belsen. As far as the French government is concerned, she is a dead woman, a casualty of the concentration camps. But after a narrow escape, Lily de St-Germain is back, and ready to take revenge on everyone who buried her. When the war started, Lily fled the countryside for Paris, hoping to convince her husband to abandon his work at the Louvre and help get their children to safety in England. There she found him in the arms of her sister, a betrayal that pushed her into the ranks of the Resistance-that fearful band of partisans who taught her to kill, and forced her to survive. The war may end in 1945, but Lily's battle will have only just begun.

In a resort town turned internment camp, a female prisoner is brutally murdered Before the war, the hotels of Vittel hosted the wealthiest members of French society. Now, in the winter of 1943, two of France's most luxurious resorts have been converted into an internment camp for British and American women who failed to escape the country when the German army stormed across the border. For two years, the prisoners have lived quietly, surviving on Red Cross aid packages, but now they are beginning to die. An American woman is found stabbed through the heart with a pitchfork. By the time inspectors Jean-Louis St-Cyr and Hermann Kohler arrive from Paris, rigor mortis and the February frost have frozen her solid. In her pockets are Cracker Jacks and Hershey bars-bribes intended for one of the guards. To bring justice to Vittel, St-Cyr and Kohler will have to unravel the conspiracy that is at the heart of this luxurious, elegant hell. ." . . St-Cyr and Kohler have] returned in an enthralling, character-propelled new police procedural . . ." -Kirkus Reviews "The combined ingenuity of St. Cyr and Kohler, the harsh realities of the occupation, and an array of intriguing characters will keep readers turning the pages." -Publishers Weekly "One of the most unusual crime-fighting duos in detective fiction." -Mystery Review "A master of the psychological thriller.

In 1943 occupied France, French villagers, officials, and operatives are caught in a cat-and-mouse game. Their survival may depend on the cunning and courage of a mute ten-year-old boy. Occupied France is a place of danger and duplicity; of survival and betrayal; of the double and triple cross. Martin, a ten-year-old English boy, rendered speechless after the trauma of the 1940 Blitzkrieg, travels from the countryside to see a specialist in Paris, accompanied by his purported mother, Angelique Bellecour, in reality his missing father's mistress. Two SS officers, the unspeakably cruel Kraus and his conflicted superior Dirksen, suspect them of being couriers for the underground and detain them for questioning, where they are privy to the fatal techniques used on other detainees. The SS suspicions are further aroused when Martin's enigmatic parachute drawing is discovered. The question arises whether it signals the arrival of an agent sent to rally the resistance and thwart German plans to bomb London from a site within France. And so begins the game. Who is watching the watchers? Who is complicit? Who, if anyone, can be trusted? J. Robert Janes (b. 1935) is a mystery author best known for writing historical thrillers. Born in Toronto, he holds degrees in mining and geology, and worked as an engineer, university professor, and textbook author started he began writing fiction.
