THEY MURDERED FAMILIES. THE FUHRER CANNOT PROTECT THEM NOW.
It's not wise to murder the family of a budding assassin. Created by Auschwitz, her skill is honed by revenge.
A very different type of serial killer is loose in 1950s Europe. In Britain, a Brotherhood of powerful men takes notice and enhances the expertise and artistry of a killer.
DCI John Owen was born to serve. Recruited by MI6, he tracks an accomplished executioner whose love of luxury and the arts is second only to the love of watching an early death come to those who truly deserve it.
Join the chase. Then ask yourself...
Can there ever be only one winner?
I will be sharing my review with you all very soon, but until then I have got exclusive extract from the book, Amalie!
Ten beds adorned one of the bedrooms. They were perfectly made, uniform, nothing personal, no personal belongings; ready for one child to leave and another to arrive. Amalie was guided to a bed in the corner; an unopened toothbrush, toothpaste, and a small bar of soap sat on her pillow.
‘How many members of staff are there?’ her guardian asked.
‘We have four members of staff. Each takes it in turns to work around the clock.’ She said it like she was proud that so few staff could tender that many children.
The building had lost its grand splendour. A mansion it must have once been, but all that remained was a mansion that once had shone under the sun and was now chipped, broken, dark, and beyond repair.
The scratch marks on the walls were like those of a rabid animal that tried to claw its way out, the windows were broken, and old broken dolls lay on the floor with heads torn away from their bodies. The walls had lost their colour, every step creaked through the shadow-filled hallways, and the children whispered cruel words.
I hope that has done enough to encourage you to buy the book! I am looking forward to this one after all the reviews I have seen!!!
Until next time xxx
