What connects the wartime survival of a Jewish man who worked in the offices of the Chancellor of Austria to the murder of a Catholic priest some twenty years after the end of the Second World War?
What has the slaughter of three hundred Nama tribe folk at their settlement in Namibia got to do with the Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations?
And why were the remains of Martin Bormann, Hitler’s personal secretary, not discovered until December 1972, buried near Berlin’s Lehrter station?
Former British spy Jack Price knows the answer to all these questions and is willing to die to keep the secret. The problem is... he’s not the only one who knows.
It’s the lies that are not heard but kept as secrets, that own us all.
What Happened in Vienna, Jack? by Danny Kemp
Jack Price, former British spy knows why events that happened decades before are linked to current events that appear completely separate and he would die before divulging what he knows. But is he perpetuating more secrets or even more lies that were never exposed? How far does loyalty go when lives could be saved and justice better served?
WHAT HAPPENED IN VIENNA, JACK? by Danny Kemp has all the grit and dry detail of a brilliant British spy novel. There is a complexity that heaps layer upon layer of intrigue and suspense into this dark tale that bounces from past to present and back again as each layer is revealed and every festering scar is exposed.
Spycraft comes alive, as each character is met and they play out their assigned role in history. Follow the twisted coils that span time and be amazed at the details Danny Kemp provides with that signature British flair.
Gritty, dark, and yet charmingly magnetic, the guessing game to reach the end is superbly mapped out, just don't expect to breeze through this tale, you won't want to miss a thing.
This tale has atmosphere in spades and Mr. Kemp is a master storyteller of suspense!
