Stalag Texas - Christmas Eve, 1944. A select group of German POWs seize a pair of hostages and break out of the MacLean Detention Camp in West Texas, heading for New Mexico and America's secret A-bomb facility in Los Alamos. Only the hostages -- Captain Edward Dryden and an American nurse -- know where the Germans are headed. With little hope of rescue, Dryden must stop the POWs before they reach their goal, or die knowing the Germans are one step closer to ultimate victory. Originally published by Pocket Books.
