Son of Hitler
Jun 17, 2018
A book as good as it sounds. Pierre the lowly baker's assistant with a vicious streak is told that British wartime intelligence – well, one operative working for it at least – suggests he's little old Adolf's kid. Who better to rock up to him and dispose of him? Of course such a plan can't go so easily, not when the kid has his temperament, and not where Nazis are involved, either. I think I liked the limited-palette monochrome images, although I can't say I fell in love with the look. I certainly did like the numerous twists and jerky movements the story took us on, and I certainly felt the creative team were onto a winner with one particular aspect to the plot I daren't mention. They could have gone down the sensationalist, insalubrious side of things, but no – they did their history of the War with a great deal of intelligence, and this is all the more enjoyable and readable for it. Four and a half stars.
