Publisher's Summary

The most anticipated spy thriller of 2020, from the Sunday Times best-selling author of Corpus.

Autumn 1941. The war is going badly for Britain and its allies. If Hitler is to be stopped, a new weapon is desperately needed.

In Cambridge, professor Tom Wilde is approached by an American intelligence officer who claims to know of such a weapon - one so secret even Hitler himself isn't aware of its existence. If Wilde can smuggle the package out of Germany, the Third Reich will surely fall.

But it is only when he is deep behind enemy lines that Wilde discovers why the Nazis are so desperate to prevent the 'package' falling into Allied hands. And as ruthless killers hunt him through Europe, a treacherous question hangs over the mission: if Hitler's secret will win them the war, why is Wilde convinced it must remain hidden?

Dramatic, intelligent and utterly compelling, Hitler's Secret is the breakout spy thriller of the year from the award-winning author of Corpus and Nucleus - perfect for listeners of Robert Harris, C J Sansom and Joseph Kanon.

UNSTOPPABLE!

It is a deadly historical thriller. Once started, can not be stopped. The narration is amazing. The storyline never fails to surprise at every twist and turn. Only one thing is a bit disappointing. Hitler is not highlighted much in the story. Hitler remains in the shadow all the time. Otherwise, I am glad that I listened to this book.

Loved Hitler’s Secret

This 4th installment is the best of the lot. I look forward to more. And, of course, more John Shakespeare stories ❤️

Series gets better

I’m actually enjoying these more as I go along. There’s always an issue for me with thrillers like this where the protagonist is supposed to be someone outside the military or espionage world. The hero is a lecturer who also can fight, shoot, row a boat in high seas and outwit the intelligence services of two countries. My lecturers at university could barely keep us in lectures and out of the pub! Once you get over that and just enjoy the books they’re great. Intelligent, twisty and an interestingly different take on a massively over-exploited period.

Five stars are not enough.

Really enjoyed this book from start to finish. A chilling portrayal of a previous time under a despicable fascist regime that caused the deaths of millions of people. The story quickly moves along between people and places, where a mistake or chance encounter may finish the main characters. Travel back Into dark history when hopes and bravery prevailed over evil.

Another thrilling masterpiece

What a great book. The story kept me 'hanging' until the very end. Exciting, historical of the times, well researched and very well written. I cannot recommend this book more highly. The narrative voice is well chosen and easy on the ear. I can only give this 5 stars, wish there were more I could rate it.

An interesting storyline.

Very good, happy to recommend. Some nice twists and turns to keep it interesting. I would have liked more detail to reflect the period and the difficulties involved at the time.

Magnificent listening

This is one book I have been fascinated in for some time and finally I got around to listening to it at the end I asked myself why? why did I take so long why didn't I listen to it earlier
The storyline is brilliant the characters majestic and the locations with beautifully described scenery simply awesome I simply got hooked into it from the off a fantastic beginning I had my own visions of the people involved and the locations .
The narrator was terrific very precise with his description of scenes characters and description of events as they unfolded
This is the first time I have live listened to a book by the author and have to openly state it will not be my last
I had no problems in giving this book a 5 star review it will probably be the my last listen of the year and I can say comfortably a great way to end 2020 I have both read and listened to a lot of books this year and this easily makes my top 5
so if my review helps you to try reading/listening to this book then I hope you enjoy it as much as me as I said earlier I simply couldn't get enough of it then enjoy it it. is simply magnificent

Another Good Adventure

A good tale, believable and with nice flow. Narrator again does good job and am happy to recommend. But best to read/listen to series in order.
