In the middle of a desert, a POW camp harbors a deadly secret. A sleeper agent embedded among combat prisoners receives orders activating him to a deadly mission beyond the prison wire.
Get ready for a WWII thriller unlike any you have ever read. For this prison camp is inside America. Camp Santa Rosa, New Mexico. And this prisoner, Colonel Jurgen von Hofmann, is an SS intelligence officer of the Sicherheitsdienst attached to Hitler's most daring plan against the United States.

It's 1941. Great Britain reaches capacity for the incarceration of German POWs. Churchill persuades Roosevelt to sign a secret protocol whereby the United States will accept the majority of Axis POWs once America joins the war. The protocol includes camp locations and precise instructions for prisoner distribution. Immediately, it is intercepted by German intelligence—
"I call you my Ten Loki." Reichsführer Himmler grinned at von Hofmann. "You know Loki. The giant who forced his way into the company of the gods. Cunning, witty, skillful. The contriver of all fraud and mischief. You will be captured by the Americans who will transfer you to the United States. Once inside an American prisoner of war camp already known to us, you will assemble a squad of loyal soldiers from among your fellow prisoners..."
With Berlin Mesa, novelist Michael Frost Beckner breaks from his Spy Game series to deliver a strikingly original WWII thriller set on the knife-edge of an unexplored curl of history—the escape of German POWs into the heart of the American West. A land as wild and savage as its past, while the US Army, the FBI, and the OSS clash over the glory of capturing the escaped spy, von Hofmann raids the Triple H Ranch—home of strong-willed war bride Virginia Hendricks—where he and his men run headlong into a rancher's vendetta against the man once put away for the rape of his daughter.
A story filled with intrigue and violence, romance and redemption, where dark motives are cloaked by secret agendas, only a six-gun will hold fast against Hitler's ambitions and the fate of the world. But it's a gun held by ex-con Tyler Keyes: falsely judged, mistrusted, and untested—a cowboy with nothing left to lose.
Like an atomic chain reaction, Beckner smashes together the WWII thriller and the classic Western for explosive entertainment!
