Katja Heinz takes a job as a typist at Doctor Viktor’s clinic, expecting mundane tasks. However, she soon discovers that her duties include copying highly confidential medical records from a notebook.
Doctor Viktor had treated soldiers for psychological disorders during World War I, including Adolf Hitler himself.
The notes in the notebook reveal that Hitler was declared unfit for office, a revelation that could shatter his reputation and potentially alter the course of the war if exposed.
In a daring move, Katja and Doctor Viktor travel to Paris with the notebook hidden in Katja’s hat box. They seek refuge at the Shakespeare and Company bookshop, hoping to find a brave publisher to print the controversial script.
But the Nazi spies in Paris have caught wind of their plan and are determined to destroy the notebook and silence anyone who knows of the secret that lies within those pages.
As Katja and Doctor Viktor race against time, they find themselves in a dangerous game of cat and mouse.
Based on the true story of Hitler’s psychiatrist, this gripping tale features beautifully written characters that will capture your heart from the very first page. With its unique historical perspective and thrilling plot, it stands out from other books in the genre.
