Product description

A chilling tale of horror seen from the inside. Prepare to ask: ‘What would I have done?’ Fact: all orphans long for a home. But what if the home is with Hitler, high up in his mountain retreat? Pierrot is just an orphaned kid who needs a place to go. He knows nothing of the Nazis. Why would he? Then he’s sent to live with an aunt in a grand house on a mountaintop. So far so good. Or not. Because this is no ordinary time. The Second World War is looming. And this is no ordinary house. It’s the Berghof – Adolf Hitler’s home. When Pierrot is taken under Hitler’s wing, terrible things start to happen. There’s no safe side of the barbed wire to be on…

  • From the author of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas
  • Explores World War II from a startling new perspective
  • Shows what life was like in Hitler’s mountain stronghold
  • An incredible story full of drama and moral conflict

This book contains mature themes more suitable for older readers.
