‘Master of the wartime spy thriller’ – FINANCIAL TIMES

In the gripping new spy thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Hitler’s Secret, a Cambridge spy must unravel a dangerous mystery that goes all the way to the heart of the Third Reich – and the British Monarchy.

Sweden, 1942 – Two old friends meet. They are cousins. One is Prince George, Duke of Kent, brother of the King of England. The other is Prince Philipp von Hessen, a committed Nazi and close friend of Adolf Hitler.

Days later, the Prince George is killed in a plane crash in the north of Scotland. The official story is that it was an accident – but not everyone is convinced.

There is even a suggestion that the Duke’s plane was sabotaged, but with no evidence, Cambridge spy Tom Wilde is sent north to discover the truth . . .

Dramatic, intelligent, and brilliantly compelling, A PRINCE AND A SPY is Rory’s best WWII thriller yet – perfect for readers of Robert Harris, C J Sansom and Joseph Kanon.

Praise for Rory Clements:

‘Political polarisation, mistrust and simmering violence’ – The Times

‘A standout historical novel and spy thriller’ – Daily Express

‘Enjoyable, bloody and brutish’ – Guardian

‘A dramatic, twisty thriller’ – Daily Mail

‘A colourful history lesson . . . exciting narrative twists’ – Sunday Telegraph

Publisher Review

This dramatic, twisty and intelligent thriller is by far the best of the developing series so far, but equally ideal as a standalone... with an all-action, fast-moving, but complex plot. * * If clever and dramatic spy thrillers are your genre, then you'll want to pick up a copy of Rory Clements' A Prince and a absorbing and intriguing spy story * CultureFly *
