Teaser Tuesday (17 August)

Teaser Tuesday again, hos– waitaminute, who’d he say he was? 

“Sind Sie Frau Druce?” A man’s voice.

“Yes, I’m Peggy Druce. And who the devil are you?”

“Adolf Hitler here,” the voice answered. 

p. 170, The War that Came Early: West and East.  Harry Turtledove.

    Gee! A visit from Adolf! Now what did she do to deserve that? Great, great teaser!

  15. Jo says:

    Harry Turtledove always changes things up — nice teaser!

  16. @Joy: Well, she…asked for it. 😉 She's an American citizen trapped in Berlin after the war begins (but before the US enters it) and having difficulty getting an exit visa. So, she wrote a letter to Hitler asking him for his assistance.

    That was an awkward conversation.
