What if they didn't die in the bunker...? The time is April 1945. World War II is coming to a close - and a new war is beginning. Germany finally has a weapon - code name Phoenix - with an unlimited potential for destruction. Yet, at the same time, no one remains alive to lead an operation as mad as this one. No one has the incredible combination of power, will, and insane evil that the overlords of the Third Reich had once boasted. No one is on the monstrous scale of Hitler, Goebbels and the Fuehrer's other henchmen, who, after all, are safely dead. Or are they? Two Allied agents, both partners and lovers, are enlisted in finding some answers. Sheridan heads down to the bunker to investigate the bodies of some of the most evil men ever known. Debra is flown out to inspect the carnage of the new weapon. It's hard to say who has the worst job. They must watch history's most dangerous tyrants rise, terrifyingly, from the ashes. Just how powerful is this new weapon?
