This series is set in a period of time that simply didn't happen as far as my history education was concerned. (Anglo-Saxon villages in England presumably being much more relevant... ) so I've always been grateful to Sulari, and her expert husband for the research, woven into the fictional world that Rowland Sinclair inhabits.
Having said that - I also look forward to the arrival of these books as I'm always very interested to see what sort of development the series will undergo (this being book number 4 so far).
From the Blurb:
It’s 1933, and the political landscape of Europe is darkening.
Eric Campbell, the man who would be Australia’s Führer, is on a fascist tour of the Continent, meeting dictators over cocktails and seeking allegiances in a common cause. Yet the Australian way of life is not undefended. Old enemies have united to undermine Campbell’s ambitions. The clandestine armies of the Establishment have once again mobilised to thwart any friendship with the Third Reich.
But when their man in Munich is killed, desperate measures are necessary.
Now Rowland Sinclair must travel to Germany to defend Australian democracy from the relentless march of Fascism. Amidst the goosestepping euphoria of a rising Nazi movement, Rowland encounters those who will change the course of history. In a world of spies, murderers and despotic madmen, he can trust no-one but an artist, a poet and a brazen sculptress.
Plots thicken, loyalties are tested and bedfellows become strange indeed.
