The Budapest Protocol by Adam Lebor #giveaway

The Budapest Protocol

The Budapest Protocol

Publishing house Beautiful Books (@BeautifulBooks) have been kind enough to allow me to Give Away (yes!) ten copies of political thriller The Budapest Protocol by Adam Lebor.

The book was inspired by Declassified Intelligence Reports produced in 1944 by the US intelligence services. The result is a sinister and gripping conspiracy thriller.


Nazi-occupied Budapest, winter 1944. The Russians are smashing through the German lines. Miklos Farkas breaks out of the Jewish ghetto to find food – at the Nazis’ headquarters where he is handed a stolen copy of The Budapest Protocol giving details of the Nazis post-war plans. Miklos knows it must stay hidden forever if he is to stay alive.

Present day Budapest. As the European Union launches the election campaign for the first President of Europe, Miklos Farkas is brutally murdered leaving his grieving  journalist grandson Alex to track down the killers. He soon unravels a chilling conspiracy rooted in the dying days of the Third Reich, one that will ensure Nazi economic domination of Europe – and a plan for a new Gypsy Holocaust.

The hunt is on for The Budapest Protocol. Alex is quickly drawn into a deadly web of intrigue and power play, played for the highest stakes: the very future of Europe. But Alex must battle his own demons as he uncovers a shadowy alliance that the world thought had been defeated for good. Powerful, controversial and thought-provoking, The Budapest Protocol is a journey into Europe’s hidden heart of darkness…

If you enjoy books by Robert Ludlum then you’ll surely enjoy this one.

The Giveaway is now closed. I shall announce the ten winners during #FridayReads on Friday 12th August 2011.

Expect to see this title turning up when I do my #FridayReads this week!
