9780062278845: Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke

The follow-up to Anne Blankman's fantastic PRISONER OF NIGHT AND FOG, an explosive, fast-paced thriller set in the shadowy and dangerous world of Nazi Germany.

The girl known as Gretchen Whitestone has a secret: she used to be part of Adolf Hitler's inner circle. More than a year ago, she made an enemy of her old family friend and fled Munich to live in Oxford, posing as an ordinary German immigrant. Her love, Daniel Cohen, is a reporter in town, and Gretchen is content. Then a telegram sends Daniel back to Germany, and her world turns upside-down when she learns that Daniel is wanted for murder. To save him, she must return to her homeland and somehow avoid capture and recognition by her former friends, the Nazi elite. And as she and Daniel work to clear his name, they discover a deadly conspiracy stretching from the slums of Berlin to the Reichstag itself. Can they dig up the explosive truth and escape in time - or will Hitler discover them first?

Review:

Suspenseful and clever, intertwining historical truth with action-packed shootouts ( Kirkus Reviews)

The book's meld of romance, action, and thriller is utterly convincing... a heady sweep of truth and fiction. The mystery, revolving around Göring and a mistress he might have killed, twists effectively, ramping up to a real-life historical conspiracy ( Booklist)

I'm in awed envy of the daring with which Anne Blankman plunges into her difficult and sensitive subject matter. To read Prisoner of Night and Fog is to be immersed in a breathtaking evocation of Munich in the 1930s, where life is ordinary and skin-crawling by turns, and in the painful, hopeful story of one young girl's awakening conscience. It's terrifying and incredible to think how much of this story is true (Elizabeth Wein, author of CODENAME VERITY)

A tremendously cleverly constructed and terrifically compelling story that puts you right back into History - I read this one obsessively and felt every single moment ( www.lizlovesbooks.com)

I haven't liked a historical fiction novel quite this much since Elizabeth Wein's Rose Under Fire. Prisoner of Night and Fog is completely absorbing. It's well-written and clever, and the sort of book that lingers in your thoughts well after the final pages ( www.realmoffiction.blogspot.co.uk)

Completely engrossing ( Publishers Weekly (starred review))

Book Description:

A compelling coming-of-age tale for fans THE BOOK THIEF and CODE NAME VERITY.
