""...an original and exciting story that is certainly gripping and races along at a furious pace." "
Hitler and the Nazi regime were convinced that Fate controlled their lives, and if this was understood, it could be used to control the world. In this account, SS Captain Werner Stolz is captured after the war and interrogated by a Russian and an American. He reveals the existence of a way of determining the future that had been embraced by Hitler and other leading Nazis. The Americans decide to keep this quiet for the time being.
Seventy years later, at the age of 103, Stolz decides that after a successful and profitable career, it is his time to die and he uses the same method as his hero before him - poison. This death sparks off an international and secret investigation, spearheaded by a driven Russian woman and including an American, a Frenchman and a British representative. The Briton is Miles Munro, an eccentric and brilliant lecturer in history at Oxford University.
As they investigate the death of Stolz and the papers he left behind, some very strange coincidences and patterns occur. As they seem to get nearer to a solution to Stolz's secret, members of the group are eliminated and danger lurks at every corner. The truth that appears to emerge is that there is a preordained plan that uses astrological methods to predict the major and minor events of the future. But someone is trying to stop this 'truth' emerging, and is prepared to go to any lengths to do so.
