The Allies have won the battle of the Atlantic, and German forces are retreating on all major fronts. The war in Europe is effectively over, but the Nazis will never accept defeat. An Abwehr deserter and member of the German resistance - the Black Orchestra - with a price on his head, Kurt quickly finds himself in a deadly race to prevent the Nazis from developing the first atomic bomb and changing the outcome of the Second World War.

A Remarkable German on Our Side

This is second book of the Black Orchestra series and every bit the equal of its predecessor. Kurt Mueller turns himself in to British authorities, risking his life doing so. Having escaped Germany with false papers, he would be tried as a spy or incarcerated for the remainder of the war. But knowing he was uniquely qualified to damage the Nazis he meant to persuade the British to use him as a spy.

The British warily agree to send him on a rescue mission, but early on its clear someone there wants him to fail. It's a great game of cat and mouse. He is aided again by division within the Germans which he understands more than any other.

The writing is wonderful and the narration matches it.

Fun sequel to The Black Orchestra

This was a fun sequel to The Black Orchestra! Lots of high adventure and tense twists and turns. It was a faster pace with less nuances than the first but a first rate spy romp to the last! Buy it!!

A superb historical WW2 thriller

JJ Toner uses impeccable research to paint the picture of everyday life wartime Germany as the backdrop to a gripping and suspense-packed espionage thriller as Kurt Muller attempts to derail the Nazis’ plans for the first atomic weapon.

If you’re a fan of Len Deighton, Jack Higgins and/or Robert Harris, this is for you!
