Description

The rich, atmospheric WWII thriller from the award-winning author of Moskva and Nightfall Berlin 'Intricately plotted, rip-roaring World War Two adventure - proper heroes, proper villains, royal intrigue and grounded in real history' IAN RANKIN July, 1940. The Nazis launch their invasion of Britain - starting with the Channel Islands . . . And soldier turned safecracker Bill O'Hagan gets an offer: hang for his crimes, or serve his country. The mission - land on occupied Alderney, impersonate a local, steal the invasion plans, escape. He almost believes they're not lying to him. In Portugal, the former King, Edward, Duke of Windsor, receives an altogether different proposal from Germany: ease the invasion and he'll get his throne back. But Edward will not readily betray his country . . . An embittered former king. An unreformed thief. And a secret upon which the fates of nations lie . . . 'Fact and fiction merge in a rip-roaring yarn that is totally credible. Excellent' SUN 'Triumphant . . . The synthesis of real and fictitious characters is handled with panache by the talented Grimwood' FINANCIAL TIMES 'Top notch . . . the suspense never wavers' CRIMETIME 'Grimwood matches Robert Harris, Joseph Kanon, Ken Follett and John le Carr
