Description

German immigrants Karl and Marta Meyer are loyal Americans, especially after a startling visit to see their family during Hitler’s pre-war rise to power. When America enters the war, the FBI wrongly arrests the Meyers as spies, then strips them of their citizenship, rights and livelihood. They are banished to a German/Japanese internment camp, but then violently targeted by Hitler loyalists. Deportation back to war-torn Germany seems their only hope of survival.

Their son Hank enlists in the US Army Air Corps, hoping his pay can save the family’s home. After his B-17 is shot down, his ability to speak fluent German helps him evade capture. When the Gestapo is on his trail, he’s pursued as a spy and faces certain death if they can catch him. His life depends on the daring plan of two unlikely collaborators. 

Inspired by trued events, this meticulously researched novel reveals untold stories of legalized hatred and the cost of unjustified suspicion. For Malice and Mercy has great relevance for our day, weaving a spellbinding saga of treachery, survival, and unmerited forgiveness.

    For Malic and Mercy by Gary W. ToynThere is much history written in story format that I believe is written more for younger than older readers. The writing is simple and straightforward but for some reason did not “grab me” even though the story had potential to do so. I could not get into the story and found myself skimming ahead to see what would happen and how it would end. I chose not to invest more time to read word for word. I am sure that some will enjoy this book and learn much from it perhaps even being uplifted by reading it but, this book was not for me. Thank you to NetGalley and American Legacy Media for the ARC – This is my honest review. 2-3 Stars

    We all know the story, it's history, and we can't change it, but this book give us a look into happens that you really never hear about and most that I never knew. Do they make me unhappy, oh yes, and when you think about the enemy being your own country and fellow countrymen, it becomes both tragic and sad.I never knew about the German interment camps, just the Japanese, and what happened to American citizens, sad but true facts are revealed in this fictional story that is filled with true facts.We are on a journey of friendship, betrayal, torture, and finding forgiveness. A read to get lost in, and one that we need never forget what happens so history does not repeat.I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher American Legacy Media, and was not required to give a positive review.
