Book Description

In Hitler's Judas, Lewis introduces protagonist Martin Bormann. Bormann, possibly the closest man to Adolf Hitler, knows Hitler's insane decision to invade Russia will destroy The Fatherland. Already in a position of enormous power, Bormann forms an intricate plan of escape. But Bormann has no intentions of escaping as a pauper. When the right moment comes, Bormann leaves the doomed Third Reich forever, taking with him 50 million in stolen Nazi gold. His surprising destination is Pea Island, a lonely strip of sand north of Cape Hatteras North Carolina. Will his plan succeed? Populated with exquisite, compelling, and memorable characters who will stay with readers long after the final page is turned, Hitler's Judas introduces a remarkable supporting cast, including Horst Von Hellenbach, Germany's celebrated U-Boat captain who detests war and the Nazi regime and is in terminal conflict with his sworn military duty; Elisabeth Kroll, an impressionable woman unable to choose between Horst or his twin brother Harold, a handsome, respected surgeon and fanatic Nazi; Edda Winter, Bormann's mistress and talented actress who hopes Bormann will be her ticket to Hollywood; Klaus Berger, Germany's most famous thespian, whose very life depends on how well he plays his most difficult role; and Sunday Everette, a stunning young black woman who stands in the way of Bormann and his goal. Resplendent with historical detail, Hitler's Judas is an intricate, moving and extraordinary tale of intrigue, murder, romance and betrayal. This is the second book of the trilogy Pea Island Gold, of which Sunday's Child was the first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hitler's Judas Pea Island Gold Book II July 15, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've just read "Sunday's Child" Book I in the Pea Island Gold trilogy history fictions written by Tom Lewis and immediately followed up with "Hitler's Judas" Book II. I enjoyed both book and am looking forward to Book III "Sons of Their Fathers" when available on kindle II. I highly recommend these books that seem more real than fiction. Great reads.

1.0 out of 5 stars Save your time and money September 22, 2010
By Illyich
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Don't waste the minimal amount of money this book will cost. The writing is plodding, the characters, unappealing. The only marginally worthy character in the whole thing is the U-boat captain. There is nothing interesting about it, even if you a a student of WWII history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hitler's Judas July 26, 2010
By TKing
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After completing "Sunday's Child", I couldn't wait to read "Hitler's Judas". Again, this book, although fiction, contained a lot of history. The book was written in a way to keep you engaged and wanting to know what was going to happen next. It was interesting in the sense that I knew the end but I wanted to understand How the characters got to the end. There were some very graphic descriptions of how Martin Bormann intimidated people to get what he wanted, at whatever cost. Just like "Sunday's Child", "Hitler's Judas" kept me glued to my Kindle. There was a different kind of intensity to this book. Certainly worth reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars cant wait for #3 on kindle August 9, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved sunday's child. When I started Hitler's Judas I thought oh man another wwII fiction (not my genre at all), anyway I really got into it and was anxious to keep reading even though I knew the ending (If you read sunday's child you know the ending to this one). I can't wait for the third book to be on kindle!!! I might have to by the dead tree book version if they don't hurry up.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Thriller Rich in Suspense about Martin Borman October 28, 2007
Around the time Hitler invaded Russia, the Fuerher's right hand man, Martin Borman, came to a disquieting conclusion. Germany was going to lose the war. Borman didn't give a fig about what happened to Germany, but he cared very deeply about what would happen to Martin Borman. Therefore Borman embarks on a complicated, ingenius, and deadly plan to get himself and a considerable amount of wealth out of the Third Reich before the allies obliterate it. Hitler's Judas is the second in a trilogy about North Carolina's Pea Island, the first being Sunday's Child

It's when Adolph Hitler decided to invade the behemoth that was the Soviet Union that his trusted subordinated, Martin Bormann, knew that the Nazi's vaunted Third Reich was doomed to failure and defeat. That's when Bormann carefully laid his own plans to escape the looming disaster -- and taken an enormous amount of wealth with him to finance an opulent live style for the rest of his life. When the time came, Bormann smuggled both himself and 50 million in gold -- looted by the Nazi's from across the map of Europe. But instead of fleeing to sanctuary in Argentina as so many of his far-sighted colleagues did, Bormann wound up on Pea Island, an isolated strip of sand north of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. In "Hitler's Judas", novelist Tom Lewis has written a plausible novel of suspense, lacing it with historical detail and an inherently fascinating cast of memorable characters and capping it off with a compelling ending. An appropriate acquisition selection for community library fiction collections, "Hitler's Judas" is deftly written, consistently satisfying and highly recommended reading.
