Most Nazi sadists went to the grave with their secrets. Who was the real Hans Schreiber – and what was his terrible secret?
Crime reporter Mark Edwards and his colleague Danielle Green wade deep in red herrings and a twisting and turning plot as they seek to discover the terrible secret of a Nazi sadist who has continued his murdering ways in modern London. The story switches from Theresienstadt, the notorious wartime transit camp near Prague, to contemporary Germany; from a leafy London suburb to the Old Bailey, the world’s most famous criminal court, where two men strive to claim that the other is the real Hans Schreiber.
Schreiber’s Secret is a tale of unimaginable horror, hatred and mystery revolving around a question of identity. Who is the real Hans Schreiber?
Critics’ praise for Roger Radford
“…flamboyant action, as unimaginable horror from the past resurfaces in modern London.”
SHAUN USHER, Daily Mail
“The hunt for war criminals entered a new dimensional after Britain announced that she would be seeking evidence about citizens living in this country for crimes committed during the war. And Roger Radford, in this, his second novel, has skilfully taken this as the plot for an absorbing book, Schreiber’s Secret, which follows the initial success of his first novel, The Winds of Kedem. The story takes us through the horrors of the Nazi transit camp at Theresienstadt, and how the lives of one of the inmates, Herschel Soferman, and the notorious camp commandant, Hans Schreiber, become inextricably entwined.
Fifty years later, brutal murders in Redbridge stun the world. Two journalists become involved. But all is not as it seems and the journalist, crime reporter Mark Edwards and colleague Danielle Green, wade deep in red herrings and a twisting and turning plot, including a brilliant description of the Old Bailey court trial of the alleged war criminal. If there was such a word as ‘unputdownable’ I would use it to describe Schreiber’s Secret. Radford has the gift of leaving you wanting more.”
