Publication Information: New York : Little, Brown and Company, 2015
Summary: Her story begins on a train.
The year is 1956, and the Axis powers of the Third Reich and Imperial Japan rule. To commenmorate their Great Victory, they host the Axis Tour: an annual motorcycle race across their conjoined continents. The prize? An audience with the highly reclusive Adolf Hitler at the Victor's ball in Tokyo.
Yael, a former death camp prisoner, has witnessed too much suffering, and the five wolves tattooed on her arm are a constant reminder of the loved ones she lost. The resistance has given Yael one goal: Win the race and kill Hitler. A survivor of painful human experimentation, Yael has the power to skinshift and must complete her mission by impersonating last year's only female racer, Adele Wolfe. This deception becomes more difficult when Felix, Adele's twin brother, and Luka, her former love interest, enter the race and watch Yael's every move.
But as Yael grows clsoer to the other competition, can she be as ruthless as she needs to be to avoid discovery and stay true to her mission?
