Publisher: Zaffre
Release date: 23 January 2020
Back cover blurb: In the Autumn of 1941, the war is going badly for Britain and its allies. If the tide is going to be turned against Hitler, a new weapon is desperately needed. In Cambridge, brilliant history professor Tom Wilde is asked by an American intelligence officer to help smuggle a mysterious package out of Nazi Germany - something so secret, even Hitler himself doesn't know of its existence. Posing as a German-American industrialist, Wilde soon discovers the shocking truth about the 'package', and why the Nazis will stop at nothing to prevent it leaving Germany. With ruthless killers loyal to Martin Bormann hunting him down, Wilde makes a desperate gamble on an unlikely escape route. But even if he reaches England alive, that will not be the end of his ordeal. Wilde is now convinced that the truth he has discovered must remain hidden, even if it means betraying the country he loves . . . The stunning new 'what if?' thriller from Sunday Times bestseller, Rory Clements.

Oddly for a such a prolific reader, I haven't had the pleasure of reading a Rory Clements novel until now, but I wish I had!

Hitler's Secret is a thoroughly engaging and exciting read.

Autumn 1941 and Professor Tom Wilde is called upon to help smuggle a mysterious package out of Nazi Germany. Tom has no idea of the significance or importance of the package until he discovers that Hitler's most loyal allie, Martin Bormann is hot on his heels, also wanting the package.

When he discovers that the package could end the War for Nazi Germany, he is even more determined to be successful in his mission.

But Martin Bormann is just as determined and needs to get his hands on the package if Nazi Germ nay are to move forward in the War.

If Hitler's secret is exposed, it could bring down the whole of the Third rich.

This book is the fourth in a series, but I wouldn't have known that had I not read it online. This can absolutely be read as a standalone novel.

I can't say too much more as I don't want to give anything away, but this novel is a must for historical/WW2 fiction fans.

Hitler's Secret is available via Amazon online and all good book shops.

Thank You to the publishers who approved my request via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
