The German Iscariot...........  ...............follows RAF pilot Martin Cohen’s escape from Menzenschwand German Prison Camp, taking him to the British Embassy in a neutral Switzerland intent on profit by financing the Wehrmacht war machine. Master of four languages and mentored by MI6, Martin is secreted at the Berne Embassy as an ‘illegal’, charged with investigating the disappearance of operatives from their ‘escape line’. There he uncovers fraud, rivalry and murder, just as the Russian victory at Stalingrad raises doubts on whether Germany will win. Frauleins interfere, brilliant detective work; Martin discovers that a Nazi convoy is to transfer looted gold from a Zurich to a Lucerne bank. He encourages the UK, Russian and US Ambassadors to unite and open a Second Front. The convoy is hi-jacked. Civilians are killed, and the Swiss President declares war on the UK. Colonel-General Strasser, (The German Iscariot) escapes death at the hi-jack; he plans vengeance and death to his enemies within and without the 3rd Reich.

The Author, selected Henry Rondel as a nom de plume which would be unrecognisable, and allow him to dissociate himself from it, to people who know him. {It’s the sex you know!}

As a boy, Henry had 3 ambitions: county cricketer, farmer, and millionaire husband with three children; when John Lennon came along, he added ‘paperback writer’ to the list. It remains to be seen whether he is a good paperback writer.

His next book, a sequel to The German Iscariot, is almost complete, with a working title; ‘The Hunt for Colonel Strasser’; this chronicles Martin’s hunt to seek out and get revenge on SS Colonel General Strasser, before the Colonel ‘gets him’ amid the confusion at the end of Hitler’s war. Henry intends it to be gripping, with a hook even more exceptional than Sir Pelham opening ‘The Second Front’, and Switzerland declaring war on the United Kingdom.

Henry hopes you enjoy reading it as much as he enjoyed writing it, and asks you to look out for ‘The Hunt for Colonel Strasser’. A ‘rondel’ is the type of insignia marked on all RAF planes in WW2… 3 concentric circles, red, white and blue.
