On the eve of World War II, explorer Kurt Raeder receives orders from ReichsfÜhrer-SS Heinrich Himmler to set out from Berlin in search of a legendary energy source hidden among the mountains of Tibet that could bring Nazi victory. Only one man can stop Raeder and his team of SS officers: wealthy American zoologist Benjamin Hood. Together with aviatrix Beth Calloway, he must race to the Buddhist kingdom before the tides of history run red with blood.

Decades later, in the present-day city of Seattle, software publicist Rominy Pickett is saved from certain death by a mysterious journalist who claims to know the truth about her family. Rominy’s history and courage hold the key to defeating, once and for all, the evil forces again on the rise.

Blood of the Reich is a white-knuckle thrill ride filled with adventure, authentic historical detail, and unforgettable characters—that is, William Dietrich at his very best.
