'An atmospheric and gripping standalone thriller' - THE TIMES

The gripping new 2024 thriller from the Sunday Times and one million copy bestselling author of The English Führer. In this brilliant standalone crime novel set in 1930s Munich, Detective Sebastian Wolff must walk a tight line between doing his job and falling foul of the Nazi party he despises.

MUNICH, 1935 - The Bavarian capital is a magnet for young, aristocratic Britons who come to learn German, swim in the lakes and drink beer in the cellars.

What they don't see - or choose to ignore - is the brutal underbelly of the Nazi movement which considers Munich its spiritual home.

When a high-born English girl is murdered, Detective Sebastian Wolff is ordered to solve the crime. Wolff is already walking a tight line between doing his job and falling foul of the political party he abhors. Now Hitler is taking a personal interest in the case.

Followed by the secret police and threatened by his own son, a fervent member of the Hitler Youth, the stakes have never been higher. And when Wolff begins to suspect that the killer might be linked to the highest reaches of the Nazi hierarchy, he fears his task is simply impossible - and that he might become the next victim.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The master of the wartime spy thriller - FT

Rory Clements combines the talents of a superb storyteller with the unerring eye of a first-rate historian. His new novel Munich Wolf is a murder investigation with international political implications set in Hitler's Munich. Clements's depiction of Munich in the dark and frightening summer of 1935 - with its salons and beer halls, cafés and restaurants favoured by Hitler and his intimate coteries, and the seamy clubs and extravagant parties favoured by SS officers and the overly indulged and uninhibited daughters of English aristocrats - are so accurate and vivid that you will think you have been transported back to this highly-charged time in the Bavarian capital city. - Dr David I Hall, author of Hitler’s Munich: The Capital of the Nazi Movement
