‘Master of the wartime spy thriller’ – FINANCIAL TIMESIn the gripping new spy thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Hitler’s Secret, a Cambridge spy must unravel a dangerous mystery that goes all the way to the heart of the Third Reich – and the British Monarchy.
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 Hessen, 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 . .
. Dramatic, intelligent, and brilliantly compelling, A PRINCE AND A SPY is Rory’s best WWII thriller yet – perfect for readers of Robert Harris, C J Sansom and Joseph Kanon.
