This really is a fantastic read. As a fan of historical fiction and anything to do with theatre or stage, this is a must read and totally original, with an English and Jewish actor goes to Germany on the promise of stardom, only to find the love of his life and war being declared he's trapped and now under contract to the Nazi Propaganda machine, the author handles all of the inevitable moral issues that arise with great style, this is a refreshing look at one of the most terrible periods in world history and well researched.
I did however feel that the pace of the book was too quick. There were massive jumps in time firstly from 1939-1944 and then again another jump of some 20 years at the end. What happened in between those years is never properly explained. I also felt the author could have put more detail into the characters especially Eva. Also the plot did seem slightly implausibe as another reviewer has pointed out but most thrillers are. For all that though it is a thoroughly good read and well worth buying.
This is a fast moving story that keeps the reader literally on the edge of their seat. This story opens up for examination the many flaws inherent in the Nazi regime.
The ending was a little strange and I haven't quite figured it out yet. This would make a super film. At only 77p it is also great value for money. Yes great chunks of time were coverd very quickly, but if you are prepared to believe that a non-driver could get into a car (a prototype to boot) and drive with no trouble, you have to let it all in. Most stories have little holes in them, but if you enjoy the story you overlook them.
the same position as the main character. When reading the book my thoughts dwelt from real life to
fiction. The torment our character had to endure being a officer in the German army and dealing with
the atrocities taking place whilst being a jew held me in high concentration. I fully recommend this
story to all Amazon readers. The strange thing was, how could Jack Hillgate's second book, namely
Cocaine be so disappointing. I'm afraid i didn't find so many references to drugs and drug dealers
appealing to me. However i give The Jew with the Iron Cross 5 stars.

How Abe Goldstein becomes the Aryan Julius Schiller and eventually joins the SS and is awarded an Iron Cross makes for an exciting adventure. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel but did spot a couple of historical errors.
When Abe's bloody stage make-up startles a `Chinaman', Abe muses that he must look like the Yorkshire Ripper on the prowl. Peter Sutcliiffe, aka the Yorkshire Ripper wasn't born until after the war and didn't begin his killing spree until 1969. I think the author has confused him with the notorious `Jack The Ripper' who prowled the East End in the 1880's.
Later in the novel Abe describes a gaggle of press photographers as `paparazzi'. This phrase was first coined in the 1960 film La Dolce Vita directed by Federico Fellini.
Neither of these historical bloopers detracts much from what is a very entertaining page-turner.
