About the Book

Set against Berlin’s extraordinary Tempelhof Central Airport and its labyrinth of secret tunnels, Last Flight from Tempelhof spans six tumultuous decades in the ever-changing German capital city.
Tony Swan, a career U.S. Air Force intelligence officer, must flush out any threats against two U.S. presidents when they visit Berlin. One president, in June of 1987, is about to make a speech at the Berlin Wall that could change the course of history. The other president, twenty-one years later, hopes to salvage his legacy after leading the United States into a disastrous war. He and his secretary of state join a crowd of 100,000 to witness the historic final flight from Tempelhof—the airport that once saved West Berlin and is now being transformed into a giant amusement park, thus fulfilling the vision of Hitler’s chief architect, Albert Speer.
Haunted by personal tragedy and his own doubts about American foreign policy, Swan uncovers murderous conspiracies in two vastly different geopolitical eras. Racing the clock, he is eluded by the deadly secret that ties the plots together, hidden for two decades somewhere in the long-forgotten passages beneath the massive terminal building at Tempelhof.
