"An incredible adventure and a great page-turner!" -Bear Grylls

Otto and Leni thought they were safe: They escaped - barely - from war-torn Europe and are living as refugees in England. But now the Crown has recruited them: Great Britain wants them to go back. As spies!

Dropped behind enemy lines, they embark on a top-secret operation. Code name: Wolfsangel. Their mission? Capture the one person who can defeat the ultimate evil of Nazism! Der Fuhrer has destroyed Otto's and Leni's families, but what ifthe tables were turned? What if Hitler's ultimate legacy was in their hands?

Breathless pacing, nonstop action: By the screenwriter of Goldeneye, Hitler's Secret is a cinematic tale of revenge with an unexpected twist. A note by the author explains the truth behind the fiction and lets readers know what really became of history's greatest villains.

After graduating from Cambridge University, WILLIAM OSBORNE became a lawyer, but his career took a sharp turn when he switched to screenwriting in Hollywood. He has worked on more than sixty movies, including The Mummy and Goldeneye. He lives in Norfolk, England.

Read from the Book

From Hitler's SecretThe boy looked down at the red stain that suddenly bloomed on his shirt. Leni had sliced through the skin just below his ribs. Not deep enough to do any serious damage, but sufficient to wound his pride.And hurt like hell."Run," she said to Otto.He didn't need telling twice. Together they sprinted towards the station and pulled themselves up into the last car just as the train began to move. Rudi appeared outside their window, hammering on the glass as he ran along the platform."You're dead!" he screamed at them. "You hear me? Dead!"Then the train was clear of the platform and he was gone.Otto sat down. He was suddenly conscious of other passengers staring at them. "My God, Leni," he whispered, "did you have to do that?"Leni smoothed her blouse, tucking a stray hair back behind her ear. "He won't tell anyone. If word gets round that a younger girl got the better of him, he'll be a laughingstock." She glan ced at Otto. "Are you all right?""Fine, I'm fine. I could have beaten him. He took me by surprise, that's all."Leni nodded. "Of course," she said. But Otto could see she was hiding a smile.

Praise for Hitler's Secret

"[A] satisfying, slightly bittersweet experience." -Publishers Weekly

"Osborne, a Hollywood screenwriter, combines historical facts with a great deal of literary license focused on propelling the action." -School Library Journal
