<p><b>The new blockbuster thriller from Graham Hurley is set against the final stages of the Second World War.</b></p><p><b>Confidant of Goebbels. Instrument of Stalin. What's the worst that could happen?</b></p><p>January 1945. The Reich is shrinking. Even Goebbels has run out of lies to sweeten the reckoning to come. An Allied victory is inevitable, but who will reap the spoils of war?</p><p>Werner Nehmann's war came to an abrupt end at Stalingrad, when the remains of General Paulus' Sixth Army surrendered to the Soviets, and Nehmann was taken captive. But now he's riding on the back of one of Marshal Zhukov's T-34 tanks, heading home with a message for the man who consigned him to the Stalingrad Cauldron. Although the Red Army are about to fall on Berlin, Stalin fears his sometime allies are conspiring to deny him his prize. He needs to speak to Goebbels – and who better to broker the contact than Nehmann, Goebbels' one-time confidant?</p><p>Having swapped the ruins of Stalingrad for the wreckage of Berlin, the influence of Goebbels for the machinations of Stalin, and Gulag rags for a Red Army uniform, Nehmann's war has taken a turn for the worse. The Germans have a word for it: <i>Katastrophe</i>.</p><p><b>Reviewers on Graham Hurley:</b></p><p>'Historical fiction of a high order' <i><b>The Times</b></i> <br />
'Tense, absorbing and faultlessly plotted' <i><b>Sunday Times</b></i></p>
