Anna Dahlberg grew up eating dinner under her father’s war-trophy portrait of Eva Braun. Fifty years after the war, she discovers what he never did–that her mother and Hitler’s mistress were friends. The secret surfaces with a mysterious monogrammed handkerchief, and a man, Hannes Ritter, whose Third Reich family history is entwined with Anna’s.

All the Money in the World
by John Pearson


Inspired by the most infamous incident involving the Getty family – now a major film directed by Ridley Scott, starring Mark Wahlberg, Michelle Williams and Christopher Plummer

Oil tycoon J. Paul Getty created the greatest fortune in America – and came close to destroying his own family in the process. Of his four sons who reached manhood, only one survived relatively unscathed. One killed himself, one became a drug-addicted recluse and the third had to bear the stigma all his life of being disinherited in childhood.

It’s a place run by the psychiatrist, Dr. Benjamin Linden, where I can learn to control my powers with intense training and therapy. Plus the school also houses The Brigade, a secret team of superheroes…
