Wealth. Power. Glory. Revenge. When it feels like the world is against you, can anyone be trusted? April 1940. Norway has fallen under the Nazi blitzkrieg. Only a small British force stands between Hitler's SS and the ultimate prize... but a hidden enemy has other plans in motion, plans that threaten to derail both sides' plans. Lieutenant Harry King is in trouble again. Haunted by his past and consumed by alcohol, he stands to lose the only thing he has left - his rank. When he is saved from his fate by a mysterious officer and sent on a seemingly simple errand, things start to go horribly wrong and King soon becomes the only person who can stop his new enemies. Dragged into a hair-raising world of conspiracy and betrayal, King must choose between his duty, love and revenge. In a heart-pounding race across the frozen tundra, mountains and fjords, can he survive against the odds and prevent disaster? Can he recover a mysterious missing cargo that holds the key to success? Will he uncover the truth and unmask the traitor at the heart of his world? Kingmaker is a gripping adventure based around the forgotten history of the early Second World War, and will appeal to all readers of action thrillers, spy stories, crime and mysteries as well as military and historical novels.
