November 1938 and in the final months leading up to the outbreak of World War II, the Rogues' trilogy closes with The Darkest Hour. In the aftermath of battles in Berlin, Amsterdam, New York, Paris and London, Major Klaus Krak, the leader of the Alpha Wolves, more infamously known as Cerberus, is summoned by Reichsfuhrer Himmler and Obergruppenfuhrer Heydrich to Berlin. There he is given free rein by the German High Command to unleash the full force of his elite unit of SS and Gestapo assassins on the Rogues - a small group of volatile men and women who have repeatedly snatched innocent families from Cerberus' grasp. Meanwhile, Winston Churchill remains an isolated voice as he rails against the Munich Agreement, and warns that Fascism will soon cast its shadow across the globe. With the help of his spy, Cerberus baits his trap - and waits. Once the Rogues are eliminated there will be nothing to stop Cerberus' assassins from eradicating all opponents of the Nazis prior to their invasion of Europe."
