At a victory parade in London, Hitler is assassinated, so unleashing a chain of events that sees the snatching of the teenage princesses Elisabeth and Margaret, their pursuit all over the country by German, British and American forces, a terrifying discovery, and a trans-Atlantic chase to New York that culminates in the explosion of the first atomic bomb.
In his debut thriller, biographer and historian Jim Ring brings the skills that won him two major literary prizes to a new genre. The result is entrancing.
