LoveReading View on Traitor's Gate

A fast-paced novel a little out of the norm for this author. It successfully mixes history with fiction, makes the political machinations of both sides understandable and interesting and paints a disturbing picture of life under the fascist regime for it all eventually centres on a plot to assassinate Hitler. Despite knowing the outcome it is our involvement with the main players that keeps us glued to the page. This is gripping throughout.

Traitor's Gate Synopsis

Arriving in Nazi Germany, Englishman Conrad de Lancey feels 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.
