June 2013 eBook of the Month.
A nerve-shredding, intelligent thriller based around the first plot to kill Hitler, the story of a secret conflict ignited on the eve of World War Two.
A 'Piece of Passion' from Nicolas Cheetham, Digital Publisher, Head of Zeus...
'Michael has taken a 'well-known' period of history and crafted something new, injecting an excruciating tension into a story where we already know -- or think we do -- the ending, immersing us so deeply in Berlin 1938 that we lose our historical hindsight, creating a climax that not only gets the heart racing, but is also morally satisfying and intellectually stimulating.'

A new and exciting direction change for this bestselling thriller writer.
Conrad de Lancey has seen enough of evil: the shadow of fear on the faces of innocents; the roar of tanks through empty streets; the sudden lull before the slaughter begins. Franco's bloody insurrection taught this Englishman all about hell. Arriving in his mother's country, the now Nazi Germany, Conrad is sick at heart. Even Berlin - infamous haven of decadence and vice - salutes fascism. Himmler's black-shirted troops rule the city, and every German arm bears a Swastika. But does every German heart belong to Hitler? When Conrad is arrested by the Gestapo on suspicion of spying, he is rescued by Theo, an old friend from university, now a lieutenant of the Wehrmacht. Together they are drawn into a world of danger and deceit, of plots, paranoia and intrigue where the brave few are united by a single ambition: to free the fatherland from the Fuhrer.
