Waterstones Says

Previously published as The Lost Boys, Bailey’s account of the fate of Fey Pirzio-Birol – a daughter of the man who tried to assassinate Hitler – reads like the most riveting, terrifying thriller. Richly evocative, harrowing but ultimately life-affirming, Fey’s War is a striking story of darkness, cruelty, courage and the power of hope.

**Formerly published as The Lost Boys**

'Remarkable. A powerful, engrossing story of a journey into the heart of darkness and final escape from it' Sunday Times

In September, 1944, the SS march into a remote Italian castle, arrest a mother and seize her two sons, aged just two and three. If Hitler has his way she will never see them again. For Fey Pirzio-Biroli is the daughter of Ulrich von Hassell, executed days before after the failed assassination of the Fuhrer. Mercilessly cast into the Nazi death machine, Fey must cling to the hope that one day she will escape and rescue her lost children . . .

'Riveting, important, reads like a terrifying thriller' Daily Telegraph

'As thrilling as any novel. Bailey has an extraordinary talent for bringing history to life' Kate Atkinson
