About the author (2012)

Robert von Hahnke is a veteran of the Detroit Police Department, the New Hampshire State Police, and the LaCrosse Police Department in Virginia. After thirty years of investigating crimes and vehicle accidents he retired to the Nashville, Tennessee, area. Always intrigued by an old family story by his father, a WWII US Army veteran, linking the family to the German military of the pre-WWI era, Von Hahnke decided to investigate using the latest modern technology to prove or disprove the family lore. His investigation uncovered, to his surprise, a relative who was a field marshal of the German army and was the highest adviser and confidant of young Kaiser Wilhelm II. The field marshal was also a traveling emissary for the kaiser, a Henry Kissinger of the 1890s and early 1900s. The investigation also brought to light accusations of murder at the highest level of Royal society. A trip by Von Hahnke to Norway and the scene of the “crime” were necessary and concluded his investigation at a huge memorial erected by the kaiser for the field marshal’s son.
