The Song Before it is Sung, Paperback / softback Book

The Song Before it is Sung Paperback / softback

Description

On 20 July 1944, Adolf Hitler narrowly escaped an assassin's bomb.

Axel von Gottberg and his conspirators were hunted down and hanged from meat-hooks, and the executions filmed.

Sixty years later, Conrad Senior is left a legacy of papers by von Gottberg's close friend, the legendary Oxford professor Elya Mendel, and becomes obsessed with what they reveal and finding the brutal film.

Award-winning writer Justin Cartwright has conjured a masterwork that addresses the nature of friendship and what it means to be human, and it is a remarkable tapestry of passion, ideas, frailty and courage.
