It's the height of World War II. Michael O'Shaunessey, son of the Irish ambassador to Nazi Germany, lives with his family in Berlin. But Michael, like his parents, is a spy. He joins the Hitler Youth, taking part in their horrific games and book-burning, despising everything they stand for but using his insider knowledge to bring important information back to his parents and the British Secret Service. When Michael is tasked to find out more about Projekt 1065, a secret Nazi mission, things get even more complicated. He must prove his loyalty to the Hitler Youth at all costs -- even if it means risking the lives of his family... and himself.
Acclaimed author Alan Gratz delivers a heart-pounding, action-packed tale of political intrigue, betrayal, and survival.

Read an Excerpt
A British pilot, on the run in the countryside right outside Berlin?... My heart hammered like I was the pilot himself, lost, injured, hunted behind enemy lines. If he was caught, he'd be tortured and killed. How long could he hide out from the SS patrols? And if he did elude them, how would he avoid forty Hitler Youths crawling through the woods and fields to look for him?
The other boys in the troop were already stampeding for the exit, excited to have real, adult work to do for the Fatherland. I hesitated in the doorway. I had to get word to my parents. They had helped Allied soldiers and spies get out of Berlin before. But how?...
There wasn't time to get word to my parents. I was just going to have to save the British pilot myself.
