Find the truth; risk everything. A gripping WWII spy novel full of intrigue and peril from a modern master.
1942: A German spy comes ashore on a desolate stretch of Lincolnshire beach. But he is hunted down by a young detective, Richard Prince. The secret services have need of a man like him...
In occupied Europe, Denmark is a hotbed of problems for British intelligence. Rumours of a war-ending weapon being developed by the Germans are rife.
Sent to Copenhagen, Prince is soon caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Dodging Gestapo agents, SS muscle and the danger of betrayal, his survival – and the war effort – hangs in the balance.
Gripping and intense, Prince of Spies is the first in a new espionage series that will delight fans of Alan Furst, Philip Kerr and John le Carré.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Alex Gerlis pieces together a masterful story of WWII-era espionage in Prince of Spies—the first in an excellent thriller series featuring police detective-turned-spook Richard Prince. In this debut outing Prince first tracks a German spy that washes up on the Lincolnshire coast before he’s seconded with MI5 and sent to Copenhagen to uncover a top-secret weapons plot. Within a superbly snaking plot, laced with rich historical detail, Prince tackles enemy combatants that include the infamous SS and Gestapo.
