REVIEW: Winter’s Bullet by William Osborne

From the author of Hitler’s Angel comes another historical thriller, this time set in occupied Amsterdam in 1945

Tygo is a young boy who loots Dutch homes for valuables – that’s the only way he knows to survive. But when Tygo is confronted with a difficult choice – to save his own skin, or grab a chance to change the entire course of the war – what will he decide? Although it’s a work of fiction, Osborne’s thorough research provides an authentic backdrop to tell his pacy, action-packed tale that exerts an icy grip on its readers. It’s intelligent, intriguing and entertaining, and ideal entertainment for a cold winter’s night in front of the fire.
