In The Kaiser’s Web, two people are running for German chancellor: the incumbent, Marie, and her fiery opponent, Pohr. Pohr is a strict nationalist bordering on Nazism. However, when Cotton and Cassiopeia hear his claims that Hitler’s best friend and girlfriend both survived the bunker, they investigate. Can they also find a missing Nazi treasures?
Who knew how much our most recent former president would resemble a fictional German chancellor? Let’s hope The Kaiser’s Web never becomes true in real life. However, here is a head’s up for MAGA people. You may be upset by this characterization. If you can get past that, the plot, pacing and especially the various settings are great. It’s descriptive enough to feel like a vacation on your couch. 4 stars for historic fictional thriller readers!
