Who really won World War II?
DECEMBER 2023: The latest Rory Clements thriller The English Führer is now out in paperback, hardback, ebook and audio - and is available in good bookstores or online.
THE STORY: In the autumn of 1945, a Japanese submarine surfaces off the coast of England, unloads a lethal cargo, then blows itself to pieces.
Former spy Professor Tom Wilde is enjoying the new peace back in Cambridge - until a call from MI5 boss Lord Templeman brings him out of retirement.
A nearby village has been locked down by the military, its residents afflicted by a deadly illness. No one is allowed in or out.
There are suggestions the Nazi machine is still operational, with links to Unit 731, a notorious Japanese biological warfare research laboratory. But how could they possibly be plotting on British soil - and why?
Meanwhile, Wilde's name is discovered on a Gestapo hit list. As the death toll rises, an unthinkable question emerges: could an Englishman be behind the plot?
