Summary

The greatest discovery of the 20th century. Kept secret. Until now.
Berlin, 2015 - a well-connected SS commander is found dead, having protected the last secret of the Nazi empire for 70 years. A discovery by Nazi scientists so potent it could change the balance of world power - forever.
Led by misfit military historian Myles Munro, an international team begin to piece together the complex puzzle left by SS Captain Werner Stolz. As their hunt across Europe gathers pace, the brutal killing of one of the group signals that they are not the only ones chasing the answer. Plunged into a world of international espionage, Myles has only his intellect and instincts to keep him alive.
As the team edge closer to an explosive truth, it becomes clear to him that there is a traitor amongst them. Who can Myles trust? And can he unravel the clues of the past in time to save the future?

Best Book of the Year

Would you consider the audio edition of Secrets of the Last Nazi to be better than the print version?

We thought the book was well read and equally as good as reading the book for yourself.

Any additional comments?

We purchased both the Audio and Paperback versions of “Secrets of the Last Nazi “ and recommended it for our local book club in France where we live. We both enjoyed the story and thought, as a debut novel, it was very good.

The historical facts were accurate, and a lot of research must have been undertaken. We thought the premise of the movements of the planets as an influence on world events was an excellent concept. The action of the novel was fast and furious which made it a real page turner, you really wanted to know how the next part of the story would unfold.

The book was generally well received by the book club with members looking forward to the next adventure of Myles Munro.

Forgettable when finished, but you stay to the end

Would you try another book written by Iain King or narrated by Laurence Kennedy?

The narrator did a great job, some narrators are excruciating, this one must have been good as I did not notice him at all, which I believe is a good sign, he distinguished the characters well. The plot had a few holes, i.e. times when coincidence conveniently happen or characters hone in on the right deduction, out of a thousand of possibilities for no obvious reason. The overall major plot device stretched credulity, although depends if you are a scientist or an artist ( Zen and Art of MM etc). Popcorn, Dan Brown type stuff, which is entertaining, but ultimately forgettable.

What could Iain King have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Clever plot twist at end to counter plot device throughout as I was expecting, but never came.

What about Laurence Kennedy’s performance did you like?

Did a great job with characters, including female, which can sometimes jar when performed by a male narrator. Would listen to a book narrated by him again, maybe by this author, which I would give a second chance, albeit expecting the same.

Do you think Secrets of the Last Nazi needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Maybe the main character, but not the same subject or plot driver.

Any additional comments?

OK if you know what you are buying, i.e. guilty pleasure somewhat ludicrous adventure, for grownups who should know better.

Nazi History and Astrology mixed together for a thrilling tale.

The best recommendation I have for this book is that I am telling everyone I meet to read it!

Mr. King mixes Nazi History and the "science" of astrology to carry the reader on a whirlwind ride of the tale of how the two intertwine. You get to tag along with Miles as he confronts the Elements and his fate as written in the stars. Just when you think he and his fellow investigators will break the secrets of a former Nazi's predictions, the rug is pulled from under them and they are off following another lead.

The person who narrates this book is the best I have ever heard! His ability to switch between British, American, French, Russian, and German dialects is genius and help to bring the characters to life. His pace moves the story along and pulls you in.

The story drags a bit at the end, but overall it was a book I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. I look forward to Miles' next adventure!

Really entertaining

I enjoyed the mix of history with fiction. The reader did a great job with accents for different characters. Highly recommend. :)
