German immigrants Karl and Marta Meyer are loyal Americans, especially
after a startling visit to see their family during Hitler’s pre-war rise
to power. When America enters the war, the FBI wrongly arrests the
Meyers as spies, then strips them of their citizenship, rights and
livelihood. They are banished to a German/Japanese internment camp, but
then violently targeted by Hitler loyalists. Deportation back to
war-torn Germany seems their only hope of survival.
Their son Hank enlists in the US Army Air Corps, hoping his pay can save the family’s home. After his B-17 is shot down, his ability to speak fluent German helps him evade capture. When the Gestapo is on his trail, he’s pursued as a spy and faces certain death if they can catch him. His life depends on the daring plan of two unlikely collaborators.
Inspired by actual events, this meticulously researched novel reveals untold stories of legalized hatred and the cost of unjustified suspicion. For Malice and Mercy has great relevance for our day, weaving a spellbinding saga of treachery, survival, and unmerited forgiveness.
About The Author
We all know the story, it's history, and we can't change it, but this
book give us a look into happens that you really never hear about and
most that I never knew. Do they make me unhappy, oh yes, and when you
think about the enemy being your own country and fellow countrymen, it
becomes both tragic and sad.
I never knew about the German interment camps, just the Japanese, and what happened to American citizens, sad but true facts are revealed in this fictional story that is filled with true facts.
We are on a journey of friendship, betrayal, torture, and finding forgiveness. A read to get lost in, and one that we need never forget what happens so history does not repeat.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher American Legacy Media, and was not required to give a positive review.
