Publisher Description

‘Gripping, compelling and beautiful.’ Emma Cowell, author of The House in the Olive Grove

A secret big enough to destroy the Führer’s reputation. . .

January 1939:

When Katja Heinz secures a job as a typist at Doctor Viktor’s clinic, she doesn’t expect to be copying top secret medical records from a notebook.

At the end of the first world war, Doctor Viktor treated soldiers for psychological disorders. One of the patients was none other than Adolf Hitler. . .

The notes in his possession declare Hitler unfit for office – a secret that could destroy the Führer’s reputation, and change the course of the war if exposed. . .

With the notebook hidden in her hat box, Katja and Doctor Viktor travel to Paris. Seeking refuge in the Shakespeare and Company bookshop, they hope to find a publisher brave enough to print the controversial script.

But Katja is being watched. Nazi spies in Paris have discovered her plan. They will stop at nothing to destroy the notebook and silence those who know of the secret hidden inside. . .

Amazing!

Couldn’t put it down! I’ve read many books about WWII, both fiction and non fiction, but this was a portion of the real history that I’d not heard much about and was fascinated by! Tessa Harris does a superb job of imagining what it really would have been like trying to pass on this bit of unbelievable intelligence to the Allies, in a beautiful way. I plan to now read the sources she gives in her author’s note about this unknown piece of the war.
