The only place they could hide from the Nazis was right beneath their feet!

Anton has nowhere to run. Ambitious Colonel Karl Van Duesen of the Gestapo has made it his mission to round up every Jew in the Ukrainian countryside, and he’s getting close. A web of underground caves seems like the perfect hiding place for Anton and the rest of his community. If they are discovered, they will be sent off to work camps. . . or worse.

But when a surprise invasion catches them offguard, and his grandmother is captured, Anton makes a radical decision. He won’t run. He won’t hide. He will follow the Gestapo and rescue his grandmother. He will stop being the hunted. . . and start doing some hunting of his own.

Michael P. Spradlin’s newest thriller is the ultimate game of cat-and-mouse set during one of the darkest moments in history.
