Sweden, 1942 - 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.
Days later, the Prince George is killed in a plane crash in the north of Scotland. The official story is that it was an accident - but not everyone is convinced.
There is even a suggestion that the Duke's plane was sabotaged, but with no evidence, Cambridge spy Tom Wilde is sent north to discover the truth . . .
I liked this book. It was a beautiful hardback and the cover is stunning. Spy books are not normally my sort of thing, but this was great. I had heard great things and this book definitely lived up to the hype. I may have changed my mind about liking spy thrillers now and will have to read more in the future. Highly recommended book and author.
