July 1945.  For Germany the war is over.  But in POW Camp 8 on the outskirts of Garmisch, one man refuses to believe that his duty to the Fatherland is over.  Erich Seyss, once one of Germany’s greatest Olympic sprinters, now awaits trial for war crimes committed as a fanatical officer in the SS.  But he has no intention of facing his accusers.  He is determined to run last one race for Germany.  Devlin Judge, an International Military Tribunal lawyer, is given seven days to track Seyss down.  An almost impossible task.  Not only must he outwit an elite killer trained to operate behind enemy lines, but he must also discover the extraordinary conspiracy to which Seyss is the key.
