The Scarlet Papers (Hardback)Matthew Richardson (author)
Spanning post-war Europe, Richardson's high octane spy thriller centres on a secret document containing secrets so explosive it could blow apart the modern world order.
Vienna, 1946: A brilliant German scientist snatched from the ruins of Nazi Europe.
Moscow, 1964: A US diplomat caught in a clandestine love affair as the Cold War rages.
Riga, 1992: A Russian archivist selling secrets that will change the twentieth century forever.
London, the present day: A British academic on the run with the chance to solve one of history's greatest mysteries.
Their stories, their lives, and the fate of the world are bound by a single manuscript. A document feared and whispered about in capitals across the globe. In its pages, history will be rewritten. It is only ever known as, The Scarlet Papers.
The devastating secrets contained within teased by a brief invitation:
'Tomorrow 11AM. Take a cab and pay in cash. Tell no one.'
