Richard Roth offers readers a well-researched fictional mystery based on actual events and characters. In his amazing book "Endangered Eagle" readers are transported back in time to Germany prior to WWII. The 1936 Olympics was taking place in Berlin. Jesse Owens made the United States proud by winning 4 gold medals in track and field.
General Hermann Wilhelm Goering invites Colonel Charles Lindbergh, the honored hero who flew solo from New York to Paris, to visit the Olympics. Shortly before Lindbergh arrived in Berlin, a plot to murder him by a crime ring was discovered. General Goering engaged Karl von Ernst to investigate and hence begins this great mystery. Von Ernst is both our main character and our narrator. Even with his massive credentials he faces danger at every turn.
While Roth has provided readers with an excellent mystery, one of the things that stood out to me was how he captures the ambiance of the era. If history was taught in school in the same exciting and interesting manner as this book succeeds in doing, our students would be listening and learning more. It is obvious that Roth spent much time researching for this book. He brings history to life. Roth has a talent for taking his research and molding it into a plot that is sure to captivate the attention of readers. This book is well-organized and keeps the readers’ attention to the very last page. He has even included twists, turns and a surprising ending. I suspect Mr. Roth has a best seller on his hands and it would not surprise me if a movie deal is in his future.
