About the publication

'I don't like killing, but I'm good at it. Murder isn't so bad from a distance, just shapes in my scope. Close up work though, the garrotte around the neck, the knife in the heart, it's not for me. Too much empathy, that's my problem. Usually. But not today. Today is different...'

The year is 1955 and something is very wrong with the world: Churchill is dead and WW2 ended in 1941. Europe is in thrall to a nuclear-armed Nazi Germany. Only Britain and its Empire holds out, bound by an uneasy truce and all the while German scientists are experimenting with terrifying forces beyond their understanding - forces that are driving them to the brink of insanity and beyond. Berlin is a hotbed of suspicion and betrayal. As a lone British assassin goes AWOL, intent on waging a private war with the Nazis, the Gestapo are on the trail of a beautiful young resistance fighter and the head of the SS plots to dispose of an increasingly decrepit Adolf Hitler and become Fuhrer. While in London, a sinister and treacherous cabal will stop at nothing to conceal the conspiracy of the century.

Four desperate scenarios that are destined to collide with catastrophic effect. And everything would seem to hinge on a single kill in the morning...
