A foreign correspondent gatecrashes the pre-war Munich Conference to protest against British Premier Neville Chamberlain's surrender to Hitler - more than 70 years later it's like the incident never happened - hushed up, with the man disappeared, never seen again. Now his granddaughter, a Cambridge graduate, wants to know what really happened.

The gatecrasher was an American radio reporter who recognised that signing up to an agreement giving Adolf Hitler everything he wanted in Czechoslovakia was a terrible mistake. He teamed up with a Czech to make a telling protest.

His action was peaceful - but he didn't know his Czech partner was armed. As the American made a loud declaration to the assembled national leaders - Chamberlain, Daladier, Mussolini and Hitler - the Czech pulled a gun. Result: pandemonium.


Emma Drake, a history researcher at Cambridge, has always been puzzled that her grandfather simply disappeared without a trace. The infamous Munich agreement was signed; Chamberlain returned home to be a short-lived hero; Hitler emerged all-powerful to wage his war and her grandfather vanished from the pages of history. The Munich police reportedly searched for him but found nothing.

For the family of Bradley C Wilkes, this appeared to be the end of the story. But on the 70th anniversary of Wilkes's radio station, Emma is chosen to lead a conference to reassess the significance of the events in Munich.

Hungry for success, Emma can now reopen the mystery of her missing grandfather - but there are obstacles in her way: rebuffed by powerful relatives, beset by an arms dealing conspiracy and hit by an Intelligence "sting", she's almost won... until her trail takes her in an unexpected direction, to a forest 50 miles 50 miles west of Auschwitz to trace partisan action against Hitler's Final Solution.
