One of my all time favorite Dickens novels. Set in the final quarter of the 18th Century. Bloody, surprising twists, captivating cast of characters (Jerry Cruncher is one of my favorites next to Madame Lafarge) and a story that is consuming from beginning to the shocking end. I started reading Dickens with this novel and I haven’t stopped.

From Paris to Stalingrad, the Nazis systematically plundered all manner of art and antiquities, but the first and most valuable treasures they looted were the Crown Jewels of the Holy Roman Empire. In Hitler’s Holy Relics, bestselling author Sidney Kirkpatrick tells the riveting and never-before-told true story of how an American college professor turned Army sleuth recovered these cherished symbols of Hitler’s Thousand-Year Reich before they could become a rallying point in the creation of a Fourth Reich. Drawing on unpublished interrogation and intelligence reports, as well as on diaries, letters, journals, and interviews in the United States and Germany, Kirkpatrick tells this riveting and true story with cinematic detail and reveals — for the first time — how Hitler, obsessed with the occult and dreams of his own grandeur, nearly succeeded in creating a Fourth Reich based around these venerable relics.
