Crime reporter Mark Edwards and his colleague Danielle Green wade deep in red herrings and a twisting and turning plot as they seek to discover the terrible secret of a Nazi sadist who has continued his murdering ways in modern London. The story switches from a wartime transit camp in Czechoslovakia to contemporary Germany; from a London suburb to the Old Bailey, the world's most famous criminal court, where two men strive to claim that the other is the real Hans Schreiber.

Would you consider the audio edition of Schreiber's Secret to be better than the print version?

It’s came as no surprise that this fantastic, engrossing book has received so many 5-star reviews. Now I’ve had the pleasure of listening to the superb audiobook, the intrigue, suspense and the character progression through the book make this a fantastic whodunnit right up until the end, and actor/narrator Nigel Patterson has done a first class job. Just as the book is unputdownable, the audiobook is totally absorbing. I didn't want it to end. Full credit and plaudits to the author and the narrator.

What did you like best about this story?

Many moments but the build up of tension in the trial was particularly great

Which scene was your favorite?

The intensity of the camp and particularly the small fortress was very moving and set the scene for the remainder of the story.
