Dark heart of a beautiful city
FEBRUARY, 2024: The latest Rory Clements thriller Munich Wolf is published today in hardback, ebook and audio - and is available in supermarkets, good bookstores or online.
THE STORY: In 1935, Munich is a magnet for young, aristocratic Britons who come to learn German, drink beer and look for love.
What they don’t see - or choose to ignore - is the brutal underbelly of the Nazi movement which considers the city its spiritual home.
When a high-born English girl is murdered, police detective Sebastian Wolff is ordered to solve the crime. He is already walking a tight line between doing his job and falling foul of the political party he despises. Now Hitler is taking a personal interest in the case.
Followed by the secret police and threatened by his own son, a zealous member of the Hitler Youth, Wolff’s task seems impossible. And when he begins to suspect that the killer might be linked to the highest reaches of the Nazi hierarchy, he realises he might become the next victim.
