THEY MURDERED FAMILIES
THE FUHRER CANNOT PROTECT THEM NOW
It’s not wise to murder the family of a budding assassin. Created by Auschwitz, her skill is honed by revenge.
A very different type of serial killer is loose in 1950s Europe. In Britain, a Brotherhood of powerful men takes notice and enhances the expertise and artistry of a killer.
DCI John Owen was born to serve. Recruited by MI6, he tracks an accomplished executioner whose love of luxury and the arts is second only to the love of watching an early death come to those who truly deserve it.
Join the chase. Then ask yourself…
Can there ever be only one winner?
I was really looking forward to reading this one after reading the blurb and not I have finished I must say that I thought it was superb!
It was written with a really relaxed but additive writing style that gave the book a brilliant flow to the story, I was reading page after page and flying through – the pace was great and I was completely wrapped up in the story very quickly. This was one of those books that I kept on reading as I needed to know what would happen.
The characterisation was great, Amalie was a brilliant character and I loved her!!
I loved the way that the story was told too – it had a great mix of history and social commentary and I am a massive fan of books that start in this period too and this was stand out for me – it was an additive thriller and I loved the way the plot progressed too.
It is 5 stars from me, absolutely loved it – very highly recommended!!
