Unmasking a Nazi Conspiracy in 1930s Hollywood

“If not us, who? If not now, when? It must be us, and it must be now. I would fight this war. I would not be silent!”― Stephanie Landsem, Code Name Edelweiss.

Code Name Edelweiss is a fabulous historical thriller that reveals a chilling but little-known chapter of American history. Set in the summer of 1933, it follows Liesl Weiss, a single mother in Los Angeles, struggling to support her family during the Great Depression.

Enter Leon Lewis, a Jewish lawyer deeply alarmed by the rise of Adolf Hitler and the increase in anti-Semitism in America. Convinced that Nazi agents are plotting to seize control of Hollywood, the world’s greatest propaganda machine, Lewis recruits Liesl and the mysterious Agent Thirteen to spy on the Friends of New Germany, who he believes is plotting against American Jews.

Liesl’s mission is dangerous and morally complex, as she must betray friends and neighbors to uncover a threat more sinister than she ever imagined.

This page-turner is based on a true story and keeps readers hooked until the very last page. The subtle religious themes add depth without overwhelming the story, making it a must-read for fans of Christian fiction and historical thrillers alike. For those who love discovering hidden stories from history, Code Name Edelweiss is an absolute gem. 5 stars.
