Malaz gave a great empire its name, but now this island and its city amount to little more than a sleepy backwater. Until this night. Because this night there is to be a convergence, the once-in-a-generation appearance of a Shadow Moon - an occasion that threatens the good people of Malaz with demon hounds and other, darker things. Also it is prophesied that the Emperor Kellanved will return this night, and there are those who would prevent that happening at any cost. As factions within the Empire draw up battle lines, an ancient presence begins its all-out assault upon the island. Witnesses to these cataclysmic events include a thief called Kiska, and Temper, a war-weary veteran. Although they do not know it, they each have a part to play in a confrontation that will determine not only the fate of Malaz City but also of the world beyond...

Following the events of A TRACE OF SMOKE, journalist Hannah Vogel has been in hiding in Bolivia with her young ward, Anton, for the past three years. She believes she has outwitted Ernst Röhm, the head of the Nazi Party’s Storm Troopers who believes himself to be the boy’s father, so she seizes the offer from a newspaper to cover the journey of a zeppelin from South America to Switzerland, particularly as it will allow her a rare opportunity to meet with her lover, Boris Krause. When the zeppelin is diverted to Germany, she knows she’s walked straight into a trap. Röhm, facing expulsion from the party as a result of rumors of his homosexuality, has decided to claim his alleged son, and marry Hannah as a beard. Unfortunately for him, his solution has come too late. Hitler has supplanted the Storm Troopers with the SS, headed by Himmler, and the resulting purge, forever known as The Night of the Long Knives, has begun. Hannah manages to escape in the melee, while Röhm faces a firing squad. Unfortunately, she and Anton were separated, and Hannah must enlist all her allies—and a few of her enemies—to track him down before the Gestapo can. With nowhere else to turn, Hannah finds herself at Boris’ door in a wedding dress. She expects a safe haven, but she learns that her presence and search for Anton are putting Boris at risk. During her absence he has been helping Jews escape and he is already under suspicion. Finally she traces Anton to the home of Röhm’s mother, who offers a deal—her son's body in exchange for Anton. Traveling to Berlin, Hannah is caught up in the Nazi’s continuing purge and must learn to trust—and protect—those she has loved, and hated, in order to survive. Praise for the novel: “Cantrell knows suspense, and in Hannah Vogel she has created a compelling character. The first person narration draws you right into the action, and pairing that with graphic, visceral descriptions makes this book a hard one to put down…emphasizes the chilling dehumanization of the Third Reich.” — Susan Engberg at Bust “A Night of Long Knives, Rebecca Cantrell’s second novel featuring journalist Hannah Vogel, again flawlessly captures Germany’s descent into darkness under growing Nazi power. Can Hannah survive—and can she protect her adopted son Anton from his murderous Nazi father, Ernst Röhm?” — jewishjournal.com “Rebecca Cantrell has written another exciting thriller and with Hannah Vogel’s sometimes frenetic first person narrative she gives the reader a feeling of what it must have been like to be in Germany during those terrible years. She has cleverly blended her fictional story in with real life events and real life characters, such as British journalist Sefton Delmer, while cleverly imparting snippets of information that add to the atmosphere.” — CrimeScraps

Berlin, 1933. William E. Dodd kommt als Botschafter nach Deutschland. Zunächst recht unkritisch, verkehren er und seine Tochter Martha mit hochrangigen Nazis und besuchen deren schillernde Partys. Doch die Schatten werden immer dunkler - bis zur blutigen »Nacht der langen Messer«, in der ein Ausbruch von Gewalt und Hass endgültig Hitlers skrupellose Ambitionen offenbart. Er ist nicht Roosevelts erste Wahl, doch da sich kein anderer Kandidat findet, wird der gutmütige Geschichtsprofessor Dodd nach Berlin geschickt. Dieser muss sich nicht nur mit den merkwürdigen Entwicklungen in Deutschland auseinandersetzen, sondern auch einem intriganten, politisch gleichgültigen State Department entgegentreten. Unterdessen ist Martha verzückt von den Partys und dem Pomp - und den hübschen jungen Nazis. Doch als sich Attacken auf Juden häufen, die Presse der Zensur unterworfen wird, Entwürfe von beängstigenden Gesetzen in den Umlauf kommen und schließlich in der »Nacht der langen Messer« Hitlers wahre Absichten offenbar werden, müssen die Dodds die Gefahr erkennen. Atemberaubend temporeich erzählt, mit unvergesslichen Porträts der neuen Herren von Deutschland, zeigt das Buch aus der Perspektive von externen Augenzeugen die Machtergreifung der Nazis in einem neuen Licht - und gibt Einblick, warum die Welt die ernste Bedrohung durch Hitler erst wahrnahm, als Berlin und Europa von Blut und Terror überschwemmt wurden.

Many wonder how Adolf Hitler, a mediocre army corporal and failed landscape painter, could have become the architect of the most calamitous events of the twentieth century. But fewer know that Hitler's fateful transition from ambitious demagogue to Europe's most vicious tyrant occurred on an ordinary Saturday--June 30, 1934--in a little-known event that would come to be called "The Night of the Long Knives." This is the story of the events leading up to that awful event, and its most horrifying repercussions.
