Summary

The gripping sequel to Prisoner of Night and Fog. The epic tale of one young woman racing to save the man she loves during one of history's darkest hours. For fans of The Book Thief and Beneath a Scarlet Sky.

Gretchen Muller has three rules for her new life:

1. Blend into the surroundings.

2. Don't tell anyone who you really are.

3. Never, ever go back to Germany.

Gretchen Whitestone has a secret: she used to be part of Adolf Hitler's inner circle. When she made an enemy of her former friends, she fled Munich for Oxford with her love, Daniel Cohen. But then a telegram calls Daniel back to Germany, and Gretchen's world turns upside down when he is accused of murder.

To save Daniel, Gretchen must return to her homeland and somehow avoid capture by the Nazi elite. As they work to clear Daniel's name, they discover a deadly conspiracy stretching from the slums of Berlin to the Reichstag itself. Can they dig up the explosive truth and escape in time - or will Hitler find them first?

Disappointing

I picked this as it was billed as of the same vain as Codename Verity (which I had loved) but this failed to deliver. I didn't like the narrators voice and didn't feel any get affection for the characters.
