A thrilling debut that puts an unforgettable new spin on the World War II suspense novel: what if the Resistance had approached the notorious Jewish gangster Meyer Lansky for help? Leonard "Mouse" Weiss has worked as a hit man for Meyer Lansky-the legendary Brooklyn Jewish crime boss-for years. But with his last "drop," Mouse has blown it, big-time. Now Lansky needs Weiss out of town fast . . . and along comes the perfect opportunity. An underground Resistance movement based in Europe needs muscle and money to intercept a train carrying Dutch Jews to their deaths. They've timed their plan carefully. The U.S. State Department and the British Foreign Service are about to meet in Bermuda to discuss what is happening to Europe's Jews, and if this rescue can be pulled off while the conference is under way, it could finally galvanize the Allies to take action. Killing two birds with one stone, Lansky sends a reluctant Mouse to do the job with simple instructions: Do not screw this one up. But Hitler's Europe isn't Canal Street, and before he knows it, Mouse finds himself ensnared in a race against capture that grows more complicated and deadly with each passing second. And this time he's looking out for more than just himself.
