Baker & Taylor
Luc, a French pastor sent to Auschwitz for helping Jews, enlists the help of Jacob, a Jewish man sent to the camp after he tried to hijack a train bound for Auschwitz, to plan an escape from the death camp.

Tyndale
2014 finalist for the Goodreads Choice Awards!
A terrible darkness has fallen upon Jacob Weisz’s beloved Germany. The Nazi regime, under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, has surged to power and now hold Germany by the throat. All non-Aryans—especially Jews like Jacob and his family—are treated like dogs.

When tragedy strikes during one terrible night of violence, Jacob flees and joins rebel forces working to undermine the regime. But after a raid goes horribly wrong, Jacob finds himself in a living nightmare—trapped in a crowded, stinking car on the train to the Auschwitz death camp.

As World War II rages and Hitler begins implementing his “final solution” to systematically and ruthlessly exterminate the Jewish people, Jacob must rely on his wits and a God he’s not sure he believes in to somehow escape from Auschwitz and alert the world to the Nazi’s atrocities before Fascism overtakes all of Europe. The fate of millions hangs in the balance.

Was a pretty good read until it started to get religious in the last quarter.

Fast-paced, historical thriller that pulled me in and wouldn't let go. Sadly, this book is populated with mostly 1-dimensional characters and lots of timely coincidences, which ultimately weakened the story for me. But, if you want a fast, thrilling read, you could do much worse.

Great author. The story is suspenseful and extremely well done. Although this is an historical fiction novel it reads like a true story. Captivating indeed!

Very basic adventure story, with almost no character development and some truly unrealistic dialogue. The "hero", Jacob Weisz, was very whiny and immature. Meh.
