What the Varchar?
A string of strange deaths in 1932 leads Bourke Cockran, Jr., and his lover Mattie McGary to uncover a plot by Nazi scientists to conduct lethal experiments on American twins in order to create a master race.
They confront an international conspiracy connecting Wall Street to Washington, DC; from Long Island's fabled Gold Coast to the marble corridors of the Barlow Palace in Munich, headquarters of the fast-rising Nazi Party; and finally to a sinister clinic hidden deep in the Bavarian Forest.
This story revolves around the issue of eugenics, the science of improving the population by controlled breeding for desirable inherited characteristics. This is obviously a sensitive and controversial issue that we don't think about in today's world but was a reality during the time when Hitler ruled under the Nazi party. The historical references throughout the book make it a very interesting read and take you back to a time that many of us only know about from history books or watching documentaries. Although your first instinct in the book make you think that the Nazi's are to blame, the fact that Mattie McGary, and investigative reporter and Bourke Cockran Jr., her lawyer boyfriend uncover that the American MID is heavily involved make's you really understand how people's patriotism was uncertain during these times.
