Recently I was contacted by Mr. Clements’ publicist at Pegasus Books to see if I was interested in reading his new book. This is book 5 in a series, but a stand-alone title. I love mysteries and WWII novels, so I said yes, and I am so glad I did! This was a really engaging and well-written story of espionage and WWII that was easy to read and kept me guessing! Here’s the overview:
A Cambridge spy must unravel a dangerous mystery that goes all the way to the heart of the Third Reich—and the British Monarchy—in this vivid new spy thriller from a London Times bestselling author.
Two old friends meeting in a remote castle in Sweden. They are cousins.
One is Prince George, brother of the king of England, and the other Prince Philipp von Hesse, a close friend of Adolf Hitler and a committed Nazi. Days later Prince George is killed in a plane crash and the country weeps, but not everyone believes that it was an accident.
When FDR, who happens to be a good friend of the prince, hears the tragic news, he wants to find out exactly what happened. The American OSS doesn’t believe the story that MI5 are pedalling. The situation is delicate. Professor Tom Wilde, Cambridge don, is called in to uncover the truth—but what he discovers is far more than he bargained for.
While reading I kept thinking about how much my father (who fought in WWII) would have enjoyed this book if he was still with us. He loved a good mystery!
Thank you for my mobi copy to read and review!
