The latest from David Lester, author of Gruesome Acts of Capitalism, this time a graphic novel!

1933: In a small German state, the last democratic election is about to take place before a failed artist named Hitler seizes power. The election is Hitler's final chance to manipulate events that will lead to the death of millions.

2010: After a man dies during a political act inspired by a work of art, the artist flees to Europe to escape her guilt. Through a chance meeting she discovers the truth of the 1933 election. The past becomes pivotal as she decides her future.

The Listener reveals one of the world's most tragic acts of spin doctoring while weaving a compelling tale of complacency, art, power, and murder. It is a startling little-known story that changed the course of history.
