It’s Detroit in 1941. With the nation on the brink of war, four people unite against the treachery that threatens America’s Arsenal of Democracy, as the city was once known.
Eva Szabó, a young immigrant, goes undercover at the Ford Rouge Assembly plant to expose the company’s illegal campaign of anti-union violence. Her boss, private investigator Elizabeth Waters, infiltrates Detroit’s pro-Nazi, Christian nationalist fifth columnists. Police Detective Clarence Brown, part of a segregated squad of Black officers, uncovers a deadly conspiracy to ignite racial violence. Meanwhile, Detective Sergeant Denny Rankin seeks the links between them all to atone for his part in Detroit’s widespread corruption scandals.
The Arsenal of Deceit recreates a rich historical period with chilling parallels to our own time. Personalized, autographed copies of the book may be available when purchased directly from the author.
