I read one of Rory Clements previous novels ‘Corpus’, featuring the American born Cambridge history professor Tom Wilde and was not overly impressed. However, in his latest book ‘Hitler’s Secret’ he has written a classy espionage thriller.
The plot revolves around Tom Wilde being sent on a mission to retrieve and bring back a ‘package’ from Nazi Germany. It is a roller coaster of a plot as Wilde attempts to smuggle the package out of Germany, whilst fending off agents sent by Martin Bormann and looking out for possible double agents. Plenty of action and strong characters, both fictional and historical. Clements also excels at the cliff hanger ending at the end of each chapter.
Clements has penned a proper page turner, as you keep wanting to read on as the chase across Europe intensifies. Impressive and I eagerly await the next book in the series.
