In a similar vein, how about something in pre-WWII Germany? I'm reading a book right now, Jeffrey Deaver's Garden of Beasts ... set in Berlin, 1936 ... an American hitman has been "recruited" to assassinate a high-level Nazi. As I've been reading through it I've been thinking how cool it would be as a game ...

Anonymous Rex is another one ... sorta like Max Payne, but the main character is a velociraptor disguised as a human. Think of the possibilities!

I wonder why more games aren't made from books? I can't be the only gamer who likes to read, can I?
