Sex, Entrapment and Escape

This is a great book like all fiction, there are many elements of historical reality .


The battle at the British Embassy in Berlin between diplomats who could see what was coming in late 1938 and early 1939 and those who like the government they represent chose to ignore the evidence in a desperate effort to avoid war with the German's and a replay of the carnage of the 1914-1918 campaign.


In Midnight in Berlin, the new military attache, Noel McRae comes across a Gestapo run house of pleasure during an outing for intelligence. A couple of days a few days he sees one of the women from the salon, Sara a Jew who is being held hostage as a sex slave to ensure the compliance of her twin brother and mother who are captives at the mercy of the Nazi regime.


Although the book is a work of fiction. Like most good works there are many facts that are true, indeed many of the characters portrayed in the book including the ambassador, Sir Neville Henderson were actually in pod at at the time.


This audiobook is a compelling listen, with great narration it flows easily. I would recommend it
