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.
Love Spy Novels
I am always excited to read a suspenseful book. Although with this one it seemed to have some gaps that fell off and as a reader I was wondering how it moved away from something.
It was so good that didn’t want to stop reading it. The emotions of the people in the book keep you captive. What is going to happen next?
