Riassunto: A thrilling and twisting tale set in a dark and fateful time in history, this story by a renowned fantasy writer hints at what might have happened had Hitler been derailed early on by scandal "So we have blood and a supposed body. With all the death and riots in Munich, you believed this to be important?" The sergeant licked his lips, swallowed, and then said, "The dead girl, sir. The dead girl, she is Herr Hitler's niece." This much is true: Hitler was obsessed with his young niece, Geli Raubal. On September 19th, 1931, two years before he came to power, Geli was found dead of a gunshot wound in Hitler's apartment in an exclusive area of Munich. Her death was ruled a suicide, but the suspicion of murder remained long after she had been laid to rest. It is 1972, and Annie Pohlmann, a young American student, arrives in Germany to interview retired detective Fritz Stecher, who headed the original investigation. She gets more than she bargained for when Stecher reveals the whole story of a case that not only nearly killed him, but almost changed the course of history.
Review: In Hitler's Angel, author Kris Rusch gathers the usual suspects: there's Eva Braun and Rudolf Hess and of course the future führer himself. But rather than put them at the center of her novel, Rusch relegates them to cameo appearances only and hands the starring role to the fictional Fritz Stecher, a cop investigating the death of Hitler's beloved niece, Geli Raubal. The relationship between uncle and niece has been the subject of speculation for decades--everything from incest to murder has been suggested, but the facts are these: Hitler and the 23-year-old Geli lived together in a house in Munich, and in 1931, she died, the apparent victim of a suicide. Historians may debate the circumstances; novelists have the freedom to imagine answers. Rusch's solution to the riddle of young Geli Raubal's death is at the heart of this dark novel, encompassing both Hitler's tangled personal relationships and his cutthroat political rivalries. Told from the perspective of a now-elderly Stecher, Rusch's tale not only speculates on what might have happened, but also hints at what might have been if Hitler's career had been derailed early on by scandal.
