A Thousand Suns Paperback
by Alex Scarrow
On 29 April 1945 the Allies secretly surrendered unconditionally to Nazi Germany.
Four hours later, that surrender was withdrawn. The world never knew - until now...It is early April of 1945.
The Nazi regime is being slowly throttled by the oncoming Russian and Allied armies and Hitler rages uselessly in his Berlin bunker.
But the high command have one more throw of the dice to make...An audacious plan is hatched to save the Fatherland and beat off the approaching apocalypse.
All it will take is a hodge-podge squadron of escort fighters, a captured US bomber and one suicidally brave pilot to fly it over the Atlantic into the beating heart of America.
Half a century later, a rusting plane is discovered, sunk with its crew, off the coast of New York - a relic from a bygone age.
Chris Roland, a brilliant young photographer, is sent to take photos of this time capsule.
But it is only when he discovers the fragments of Nazi uniforms on the decaying corpses that he realises he has come across a secret so terrible that even fifty years later it could still kill him...

Review by MiloTheDog
'On April 29th, 1945, the allies unconditionally surrendered to Nazi Germany. Four hours later that surrender was withdrawn...'It was the above tagline that made me pick up the book, and it was such a good purchase. It had been a long time since I was unable to put a book down until I'd finished it, but had to do it in this case. Absolutely brilliant idea, really well executed. Thoroughly recommended.
