In the prologue

Saturday 10th May 1941

The Messerschmitt Bf 100 night fighter continued to fly. The pilot turned east , flying over the Southern outskirts of Glasgow on the approach to the landing strip, but the landing strip had gone. The pilot made a grim decision he pulled the column back and climbed into the night sky. He knew he had to pull himself out of his seat . He rolled the plan onto its back and he fell out of the cockpit.

The story then nicely jumps to present day 1983

When I started this book I reckoned it was about a nice but boring guy, with a nice but boring job (in a bank) in a nice but boring town... so I thought it would be a nice but boring book. How wrong I was! This is a cracking page turner that caused me to miss at least 6 bus stops whilst finishing a chapter. The book also challenges commonly held beliefs (myths?) about World War II. I truly enjoyed it from start to finish.

A very engaging book, well written by a man who clearly knows his subject (the mysteries around Rudolf Hess’s 1940 flight to Scotland) and has wrapped this into a pacy crime thriller.

This was a page turner. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Loved how the lines between fiction and fact were so cleverly blurred. The plot knitted together perfectly. It is a conspiracy story with thought provoking consequences. I'll definetly be looking out for the next book from this author.
