Editorial Reviews

Review

"Overflowing with rich history and a huge amount of research, In the Mouth of the Lion is a thorough and wildly entertaining piece of fiction based in real fact. Guenther is a patient writer, and incredibly attentive to detail, making this fictive narrative engrossing, in a way that history books rarely are. It is insightful, and the meticulous nature of the editing and writing makes this a stunning novel from an established and highly competent author." ―Self-Publishing Review

From the Author

In the Mouth of the Lion began as a what-if: What would happen if a therapist gradually comes to realize during treatment that his client has killed someone and is carrying the weapon with him? The concept began as a short and disturbing play.

It took me only moments to see that my protagonist must be Carl Jung and my antagonist could only be Adolf Hitler. I started writing and researching

As I researched, I came across the 1931 case of Geli Raubal, Hitler's half-niece and girl friend, found shot in her locked room in his apartment building, with the key in the inside of her door. Hitler was not a suspect; at the time the shot (or "a loud noise") was heard, he was greeting supporters from a window at the Deutscher Hof Hotel, 100 miles away. The case is still deemed a suicide by most authorities. Still I wondered.

Late one night, studying the evidence for the nth time, the answer struck me: How Hitler got away with it. It's not surprising that someone who later killed millions could be guilty of murdering one woman. No, the surprise was how it was done. And the evidence has been there all this time. Even more bizarre is the possible tie between Geli's death and the Holocaust.

This murder mystery is a true wheel within imaginary wheels where the German OKW and the American OSS revolve within the framework of WWII. This "Russian Doll" plot transitioned first to a screenplay and then to a novel that poses answers to a dozen questions never before answered.
