9781447238843: The Nostradamus Traitor (Herbie Kruger)

Into the cauldron of war went the Nostradamus operation . . . out of it came an even deadlier threat than the Nazis: The Nostradamus Traitor

Britain's psychological warfare executive knew all about the Nazi belief in the occult. They hatched up a top secret plot to drive a rift between Himmler's SS and the Wehrmacht by infilitrating phony Nostradamus quatrains into Germany. Thirty years later then unbelievable truth began to trickle out: Herbie Kruger of British Intelligence was given the delicate task of keeping the past well and truly buried . . .

'A superbly crafted thriller full of startling twists and turns . . . compulsively gripping' Daily Express

'John Gardner has a first-rate intelligence chief in Big Herbie Kruger' Daily Telegraph

'John Gardner, at his best, is very good, and so he has been in his Kruger trilogy which began with The Nostradamus Traitor and ends with The Quiet Dogs. Here is a series that would surely film as effectively as Smiley's story has done' Marghanita Laski, The Listener

About the Author:

Before coming an author of fiction in he early 1960's John Gardner was variously a stage magician, a Royal Marine officer and a journalist. In all Gardner has fifty-four novels to his credit, including a series of highly acclaimed comic novels featuring a cowardly secret agent called Boysie Oakes. He was also invited by Ian Fleming's literary copyright holders to write a series of continuation James Bond novels, which proved to be so successful that instead of the contracted three books he went on to publish some fourteen titles. Having lived in the Republic of Ireland, the United States and the UK, John Gardner sadly died in August of 2007 having just completed his third novel in the Moriarty trilogy. Moriarty, was published here in the UK by Quercus and in the US by Harcourt in November 2008.
