  • BOOK REVIEW: 'The Devil Himself: A Novel'

    Cloaking fact inside fiction can produce a fascinating product, and that is precisely what Washington, D.C., writer Eric Dezenhall has done in "The Devil Himself." Mr. Dezenhall builds his tale on one of World War II's forgotten stories: how Meyer Lansky, godfather of New York's Kosher Nostra, cobbled together a network of thieves, murderers, union strong-arm hoodlums and other assorted felons to help the U.S. Navy find a German spy ring that was betraying information to the Nazi wolf packs operating just off American shores and sinking large numbers of ships during the first few years of World War II.
