Customer Review

4 March 2016
This is an engaging thriller with an interesting and unusual premise. I liked the way certain things are not quite spelt out about the different track Nazi Germany takes in this alternative history, and how a German victory in the war would have had various implications of different sorts. It gives the reader some interesting ideas to mull over.

The book has an old-school feel about it, and reminded me a bit of Len Deighton's classic SS-GB, which has not-unrelated subject matter.

On the minus side, nearly every Nazi in the book comes across as a bloodthirsty fanatic. I think a bit more shading could have been used there.

Also, here and there the prose is clunky and needed more thorough editing. I think the publisher should have caught this.
