Secrets of the Last Nazi

""...an original and exciting story that is certainly gripping and races along at a furious pace." "


Hitler and the Nazi regime were convinced that Fate controlled their lives, and if this was understood, it could be used to control the world. In this account, SS Captain Werner Stolz is captured after the war and interrogated by a Russian and an American. He reveals the existence of a way of determining the future that had been embraced by Hitler and other leading Nazis. The Americans decide to keep this quiet for the time being.

Seventy years later, at the age of 103, Stolz decides that after a successful and profitable career, it is his time to die and he uses the same method as his hero before him - poison. This death sparks off an international and secret investigation, spearheaded by a driven Russian woman and including an American, a Frenchman and a British representative. The Briton is Miles Munro, an eccentric and brilliant lecturer in history at Oxford University.

As they investigate the death of Stolz and the papers he left behind, some very strange coincidences and patterns occur. As they seem to get nearer to a solution to Stolz's secret, members of the group are eliminated and danger lurks at every corner. The truth that appears to emerge is that there is a preordained plan that uses astrological methods to predict the major and minor events of the future. But someone is trying to stop this 'truth' emerging, and is prepared to go to any lengths to do so.

It is a matter of historical fact that Hitler was obsessed with the predictions of the planets. Iain King has followed this up and sees connections to major world events with the occurrences of astrological appearances such as comets. It is an intriguing thought that there is a connection, but to extrapolate this to include micro details involves a little bit of poetic licence. 'Secrets of the Last Nazi' is an original and exciting story that is certainly gripping and races along at a furious pace. This is reminiscent of Dan Brown's novels in that there is an implication that another force controlling us. I feel much like I did about the Dan Brown stories - rollicking good yarns that keep you enthralled but, on reflection, rather full of assumptions and illogical happenings that do not entirely hang together. I feel if you can suspend belief, then this will be the book for you. The element of the supernatural and mystical is very much 'in vogue', and stories of Hitler and the Second World War are always popular. This book has an intriguing slant on both and I believe will appeal to a large audience.
