Description

Summer, 1940.

American Xanthe Schneider finds herself catapulted into the world of British espionage, and is sent into the heart of Nazi Germany: Berlin.

Her task? To find out whether Ralph Lancing-Price – a former government minister she had known briefly in London – is a patriot or traitor.

And what of the code he talked about so abstrusely? Using her guise as an American correspondent, Xanthe sets out to find him. But not all is what it seems. Xanthe soon becomes drawn into a web of intrigue involving a project entitled "Enigma" - and she also unexpectedly falls in love. 

As the weeks go by, and Germany begins to mobilise its armies, Xanthe has to question who she can trust - and how she can survive?

The Berlin Affair is a page-turning thriller, full of historical insight and dramatic reversals of fortune.

A must read for fans of Robert Harris, David Downing and Alan Furst.
