If You Like Richard Wake Books, You’ll Love….

The first book in the Alex Kovacs series is Vienna at Nightfall. It takes place in Europe in the 1930s. The Nazis are marching in and around Austria and the question is – can one person make a difference? And if so what can they do? Alex has the opportunity to stop the Nazi invasion and jumps at the chance of taking on this spy mission.

The second book is The Spies of Zurich. This one takes place in 1939 after Germany has invaded Poland. Kovacs is now living in Zurich but is still involved in the spy community. He knows what Hitler has planned however no-one is listening to him.

An excellent series if you enjoy historical fiction and spy thrillers.
