The Budapest Protocol by Adam LeBor

SYNOPSIS
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. There he is handed a stolen copy of The Budapest Protocol, detailing the Nazis post-war plans. Miklos knows it must stay hidden for ever 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. His journalist grandson Alex buries his grief 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 soon drawn deeper into a deadly web of intrigue and power play, a game played for the highest stakes: the very future of Europe. But Alex too is haunted. He 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...

PRESS REVIEWS
'A first class political thriller. Adam LeBor has been there, he knows eastern Europe, and the suspense is the real-life thing.' - Alan Furst, author of The Spies of Warsaw.

'A superb thriller from a talented writer. LeBor weaves together a gripping tale of Hungary's complex wartime past and her corrupt, post-Communist present. A stylish and atmospheric debut.' - Charles Cumming, author of Typhoon.

'The Budapest Protocol is in every way a superior thriller; tense, intelligent and thought-provoking. One of those rare books which flies by while you're reading it, but stays with you long after you've finished.' - Boris Starling, author of Messiah.

'The Budapest Protocol is a well-paced eurothriller that rolls the headlines of today into a conspiracy from the past.' - Mark Burnell, author of the Stephanie Patrick thriller series.

'With a tale that intrigues from the start, Adam LeBor acts as a deft guide to a place that all too few of us know well - a central Europe where the shadows of the past still hang heavy and where an alarming future beckons.' -Jonathan Freedland
