The Swiss Courier is an edge-of-your-seat, breath-holding adventure set in war torn Europe during Adolf Hitler’s reign of terror. It is a story about courageous people willing to sacrifice everything to bring an end to the evil deeds of Hitler’s Nazi party. At a time when no one was sure who they could trust and some men who had no loyalties worked for both sides, Gabi Mueller was first sent on missions for the Allies after they learned of her safe-cracking abilities. Because of her quick thinking under pressure and her unquestioned loyalty, she was then sent on a final mission that could spell disaster for the world if she failed. As she and her compatriots race against time and impossible odds, they realize that only the Lord is able to protect them and bring their mission to a satisfying conclusion.
The Swiss Courier is filled with action and suspense with a few surprises and revelations along the way. It is a gripping narrative that illustrates just how evil man can be, especially those with unbridled power. It would be wise if we all would let this reminder prompt us to overcome our complacency and pray, pray, pray lest it happen again.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
It is August 1944 and the Gestapo is mercilessly rounding up suspected enemies of the Third Reich. When Joseph Engel, a German physicist working on the atomic bomb, finds that he is actually a Jew, adopted by Christian parents, he must flee for his life to neutral Switzerland. Gabi Mueller is a young Swiss-American woman working for the newly formed American Office of Strategic Services (the forerunner to the CIA) close to Nazi Germany. When she is asked to risk her life to safely “courier” Engel out of Germany, the fate of the world rests in her hands. If she can lead him to safety, she can keep the Germans from developing nuclear capabilities. But in a time of traitors and uncertainty, whom can she trust along the way? This fast-paced, suspenseful novel takes readers along treacherous twists and turns during a fascinating–and deadly–time in history.
