The Fourth Book of the Acclaimed Rowland Sinclair Mysteries
It's 1933, and the political landscape of Europe is darkening. Eric Campbell, the man who would be Australia's Fuehrer, is on a fascist tour of the continent, meeting dictators over cocktails and seeking allegiances in a common cause. Yet the Australian way of life is not undefended. Old enemies have united to undermine Campbell's ambitions. The clandestine armies of the Establishment have once again mobilised to thwart any friendship with the Third Reich.
But when the establishment's man in Munich is killed, desperate measures are necessary.
Now Rowland Sinclair must travel to Germany to defend Australian democracy from the relentless march of Fascism. Amidst the goosestepping euphoria of a rising Nazi movement, Rowland encounters those who will change the course of history. In a world of spies, murderers and despotic madmen, he can trust no-one but his friends and companions, an artist, a poet and a brazen sculptress.
Plots thicken, loyalties are tested and bedfellows become strange indeed. On a secret mission to investigate the death of a prominent Australian in Munich, Rowland Sinclair comes face to face with the upper echelons of the Third Reich.
"Whilethe backdrop is one of growing evil, there's also some fun to be had...breathtakingly tense."
