The basic idea, that a lot of people in a rather small neighbourhood decide on hiring a contract killer to get rid of someone, is cute. But there are too many flaws to the story due to incorrect (or no?) research on the facts.
Here are some examples:
- The year of the Olympics in Hitler Germany is not 1939 ( which was the beginning of WWII), but 1936.
- A German Embassy in the USA shortly before WWII ended? The author must be kidding. The two countries were at war - no way could the Nazis have smuggled Hitler's niece into the USA.
- Although a woman might show off her newly enlarged boobs a short while after the OP, having sex with a man touching and fondling her breasts would be too painful for weeks to come.
- The German word for 'a pistol' is not 'a Pistolen', but eine/a Pistole.
There are also the long and boring descriptions, for example of the clothes Cindy and Carla wear to attract Elliot's attention, which are being repeated when another character observes their stylish outfits. That's not the best way of making a book long ehough to publish.
