Political intrigue, espionage, and sabotage are aspects of the deadly game that brings together the US intelligence community, a New Orleans Mafia don, exceptional code breakers, and MI6 in a deadly conflict and race in Nazi Saboteurs on the Bayou by Steven Burgauer. The Nazis have conceived a deadly plot to sabotage the production of the Eureka steel-ramped landing crafts built by Higgins Industries. They have discovered a notebook with maps and codes, and they are determined to accomplish their task, taking down anyone who stands in the way. Who will succeed in outwitting or stopping them?

Nazi Saboteurs on the Bayou is a captivating novel that combines history with fiction to offer a delightful reading experience to readers who love well-crafted historical novels. The story features well-imagined and excellently developed characters, a great historical setting with powerful references to World War II. The cast of characters with their specific interests is thorough and it creates the kind of conflict and tension that propel the story forward.

Steven Burgauer seems to have studied the climate of the Second World War intensely because of the verifiable facts that come across in the compelling narrative and, although this is a work of fiction, the reader feels transported into the atmosphere of the war and gets to experience some of its horrors. The writing is perfect and the cultural elements are captured in conversations featuring different languages, something that adds credibility and strength to the narrative and to the dialogues. This is an enjoyable read for fans of historical novels with compelling characters.
