Book Review: Midnight In Berlin


Hi all, I just finished the book, Midnight in Berlin by James MacManus it was just released last month. First here is some info on book:

One night, Macrae stops by the Salon, a local bar and restaurant, where he meets a beautiful German-Jewish woman named Sara. The two fall in love and Sara reveals that she is being blackmailed by the Nazis who are torturing her twin brother who is a prisoner in a concentration camp. Macrae vows to do whatever it takes to help his beloved escape Germany.

As the Nazis speed toward the genocide of the “Final Solution,” Macrae becomes the target of the Gestapo, which has him in its crosshairs. He’s caught up in a deceitful web of shifting loyalties, corruption and shocking indifference by the British government. Can he hold onto his humanity in order to save not only the woman he loves, but also himself? The answer lies in a single bullet that he plans to use to assassinate Hitler.

my review:

sorry guys I a really behind on reviewing this book it is came out for purchase I think in April. I really enjoyed this book it is a different topic then what I usually read. It is a very interesting story about WWII and takes place in Germany. So it is a really fascinating perspective on the topic. And is also from the point of view of someone who is supposed to be working on the German side, but then he falls in love with the women who is being made to work for them and her brother is in a concentration camp. 

If you like this topic of WWII or would like to learn more about the human side to the story and different aspect than you thought of or knew before then you will really enjoy this book. I would recommend this to you.
