A Prince and a Spy is the first novel by Rory Clements I have read. The cover stands out being mostly red and black ( two of my favourite colours), I'm pretty sure I would have picked up the book based on the cover alone. The novel is well written and the characters so well rounded that I felt I knew them inside out by the end of the novel. During 1942 in Sweden, two old friends meet? They are cousins. One is Prince George, Duke of Kent, brother of the King of England. The other is Prince Philipp von Hesse, a committed Nazi and close friend of Adolf Hitler. A very good book with a very mysterious plot and crime-related, however, this also mixes history, which is a good way of learning. I really enjoyed following the story and its gripping resolution and would highly recommend this novel. If you like a mix of history and spy/mystery themes this book is perfect for you.
