Orders from Berlin

(2012)
(The third book in the Inspector Trave and Detective Clayton series)
A novel by

 
 
A nuanced thriller laced with Simon Tolkien's signature writing style, which the LA Times calls "half Christie and half Grisham"

The highly anticipated new Hobbit movie is currently scheduled for release on December 14, 2012, and interest in J. R. R. Tolkien will be at a high point in the lead-up to the movie's release. Simon Tolkien, who is happy to discuss his close relationship with J. R. R., will be able to provide insight into his grandfather's work - there's no better time for him to promote his new novel.

With the publication of The Inheritance, Simon Tolkien was acclaimed as a naturally gifted storyteller who possesses a terrific command of language and a unique perception into the darker sides of human nature. Now, Simon takes readers back to London in 1940 - the case that started it all for Trave, the hero of his last two critically acclaimed novels. Albert Morrison, ex-chief of MI6, is murdered outside his London apartment. It turns out that Morrison was visited by Alec Thorn, deputy head of MI6, on the day of his death and there is a mysterious note found in the dead man's pocket which may provide a clue to a plot to kill Churchill. Could Thorn - who is clearly carrying a flame for Morrison's daughter - be involved in an assassination plot that Morrison tried to stop, and if so, can Trave stop it in time to save Britain's unshakable leader?
