About This Item

New York: Grand Central Publishing, March 2015. Hardcover. First Edition (stated) / full number line. Fine book in a Fine jacket. Interior pristine. Spine tail lightly bumped. Jacket clean and bright. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. xii + 370 pages.

The story of the feckless Edward VIII, later Duke of Windsor, his American wife Wallis Simpson, the bizarre wartime Nazi plot to make him a puppet king after the invasion of Britain, and the attempted cover-up by Churchill, General Eisenhower, and King George VI of the Duke's relations with Hitler. From the alleged affair between Simpson and the German foreign minister to the discovery of top secret correspondence about the man dubbed "the traitor king" and the Nazi high command, this is a saga of intrigue, betrayal, and deception suffused with a heady aroma of sex and suspicion.

Contents: The Peter Pan prince -- Adolf Hitler, royal matchmaker -- Sex, drugs, and royal blackmail -- Seduced by von Ribbentrop's dimple -- Courting the new king -- Edward on a knife edge -- Love in a cold climate -- Hitler's good Queen Wallis -- The game of thrones -- Plot to kidnap a king -- A shady royal in a sunny place -- Tropic of rancour -- The hunt for pirate gold -- Sovereigns, secrets, and spies -- Fight for the file -- Burying the "hot potato" -- Traitor king or duped duke?
