The story spans two continents- N Africa and N America. It concerns the life and conditions of the 400, 000 German prisoners of war incarcerated in 135 camps in the United States during World War II. Though there were many escapes only one prisoner has never turned up or been recaptured.

His real name is Georg Gaertner and this is a fictionalised version of his escape.The book has an eternal triangle of three nationalities: a German Officer, Gaertner- an American Officer, Joad and his English wife, Rose. Joad is wounded in the same Libyan battle in which Gaertner is captured. They travel back to America on the same boat and become unlikely friends after the German saves Joad’s life. The American’s injury means he is given a desk job in charge of an Oklahoman camp for hardened SS troops.

One of these is a monster called Hess who manages to kill even behind the barbed wire.The two Germans escape together, killing Joad’s best friend in the process. Despite a massive man-hunt Gaertner makes it to Mexico. Joad tracks him down, not least to learn if he is the father of Rose’s new born daughter.
