Laurence J. Bucaria, a piano-playing lover of jazz and classical music, inveterate sports fan, animal lover, and avid reader, has completed his book “The Mordecai Ring”: an epic tale of love, intrigue, and a man with the strength of character to remain true to himself in the most difficult circumstances.

Dieter Wagner, a typical American student with core values earned over the years, is suddenly whisked away from the United States and forced to live in Nazi Germany. Since he has never been naturalized, having been brought to Germany at an early age, he becomes prey to a subversive Nazi organization bent on bringing him back as a German national. He becomes ensnared in a sex trap and moves to Germany.

For the next seven years, he becomes part of Nazi Germany, where his allegiance is tested. Because of his excellent academic standing, he is treated well and, eventually, enters the Wehrmacht, where he does extremely well. He gradually sees the evil in effect by the Nazis as their anti-Semitic measures become obvious. His three bittersweet affairs are adversely affected by the Nazis. He befriends a Polish Jew and takes a prominent role in helping many families escape to Sweden. He is given a special ring with the message that he never should part with it.
The war is won, and he returns to America. He exposes a plot to smuggle artistic items from Germany and is rewarded by earning citizenship. He uses his technical knowledge to start an electronics company, which becomes extremely successful.

There is a hostile takeover attempt by trying to label him a Nazi. After undergoing a long legal campaign, the ring becomes the basis for his successful defense.
