A stunning literary prophecy. The international bestseller that caused a sensation when it was published nine months before the Hitler Diaries forgery scandal. Revised in 2013 with afterword from the author on the forgery scandal. A French aristocrat and his mistress are murdered. A mysterious businessman offers the Fuehrer?s diaries to a New York publishing house. Are they a hoax or a record of terrifying truth? A controversial historian and his beautiful assistant are commissioned to find out the answer. Together they follow a trail that draws them into a terrifying web of conspiracy and slaughter. Competing forces fight to publish or suppress Hitler?s account of the War and secret negotiations with his enemies. Are the Diaries a genuine and shattering revision of history, whose revelation must be prevented? Or are they a forged, sinister attempt to destabilise contemporary Cold War politics? If the Hitler Diaries are authentic, then who left the bunker alive?
