`An absorbing, well-researched story that brings to life an extraordinary period in history' GILL PAUL, bestselling author of The Secret Wife
It's 1943 and Hitler's Germany is a terrifying place to be.
But Magda Ritter's duty is the most dangerous of all...
Assigned to The Berghof, Hitler's mountain retreat, she must serve the Reich by becoming the Fuhrer's `Taster' - a woman who checks his food for poison. Magda can see no way out of this hellish existence until she meets Karl, an SS officer who has formed an underground resistance group within Hitler's inner circle.
As their forbidden love grows, Magda and Karl see an opportunity to stop the atrocities of the madman leading their country. But in doing so, they risk their lives, their families and, above all, a love unlike either of them have ever known...
Lose yourself in this sweeping, heroic love story fraught with
danger. The perfect read for fans of Dinah Jeffries and Gill Paul.
