A Dark Song of Blood, Paperback Book

A Dark Song of Blood Paperback

Part of the Martin Bora series



Spellbinding multi-layered crime novel set in a fascinating period and place.

Set in the first months of 1944, Rome is declared an 'open city' as the Allies steadily get closer.

The German occupying forces know their days are numbered and yet the SS, the Gestapo and the Army desperately vie for power.

The partisans attack the fascists and the Germans, triggering mass-murder retaliation.

Controversially, the hero is an aristocratic German officer in the Wehrmacht.

With echoes of Claus von Stauffenberg, he is torn between his duty as an officer and his integrity as a human being.

He must investigate the deaths of a young German Embassy secretary, a Roman socialite and a cardinal, forcing him to confront historical characters like Field Marshal Kesselring and Monsignor Montini (the future Pope Paul VI).
