I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. A thoughtful and informative review, Olga. I have to get this book.

    1. Thanks, John. I hope you find it as fascinating as I did. It might be worth checking Pen & Sword’s website, as depending on where you are based, if you’re thinking of the hardback copy it might work out cheaper. Have a fabulous week.

      1. Thank you, Olga.

        1. 🙂

  2. Gosh, Olga, this certainly sounds like an excellent book to read. Thanks for sharing this review.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I am surprised nobody has picked up on Wolfe Frank as a subject for a movie, or even better a TV series, but I guess his papers have been hiding for a long while. I hope you enjoy it if you get to read it. Have a fabulous week!

  3. This looks very interesting, Olga. I would be drawn by the insight into the ‘other side’ of the Nuremberg Trials. I am currently reading a non-fiction book about the formation and actions of the SS. This will be a suitable companion to that later.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. It seems we’re in sink for reading matter. I’ll have to check your review when you finish the book, when I come back. I did think of you as I read the book. I’m sure if you read it you’ll be casting the movie in your head. It’s a fascinating subject. And the other book about him ‘The Undercover Nazi Hunter’ that includes a collection of articles he worked on for the New York Herald Tribune sounds fascinating as well. Have a fantastic week!

  4. This sounds fascinating, Olga. Thanks for a great review.

    1. Thanks, Mary. It’s a great read. Have a fantastic week!

  5. Miss Plumtartt and I are endlessly fascinated by WWII. Thank you for this recommendation.

    1. You will enjoy this one, then. Wolfe was interned for a while and some of his adventures while he was still living in Germany are fascinating. Have a fabulous week. 🙂

    Wow, I too had never heard about Wolfe, considering how much I’ve read on WWII. You can bet I’ll be adding this book to my my purchase list! Thank you Olga. Oh, btw, I finally got my review up for Deadly Quotes and will be featuring on my blog next Sunday <3

    1. Thanks, Debby. You’re very kind for taking your time to review my book. I’ll be away from Thursday and won’t be back until the end of the month, without computer (I’m travelling with a friend and her family, and we can’t take much luggage) so don’t worry if you don’t see me around. I can’t do much with the phone and I’m not sure if I’ll have much of a connection, but I’ll catch up (a bit!) when I come back.
      It seems Frank never made much of a fuss, and he didn’t always keep his opinions to himself, so it is perhaps not a big surprise that not that much has been written about him. Let’s hope there’s some redress. I hope you enjoy it (I think it will tickle your travelling bone as well, and he was a smart dresser too!).

        Thanks for the update Olga. No worries, I’m happy to hear you’re taking a little timeout – sans computer!!! The perfect writing break! My blogposts aren’t gong anywhere, lol. As for the review, it’s already up on Amazon and GR. <3 Have a great time! xx

        1. Thanks, Debby! ♥

        2. Thanks, Debby, for your kind review. I’d been working on that novel on and off for so long that sometimes it feels as if I published it ages ago. But it’s my latest baby. 😉

            I know exactlyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy how you feel 😉

  7. Wonderfully detailed review, Olga. This book reads intriguing and fascinating. And your interest in it is palpable in your review and makes me want to run out and get it. I’ll definitely add it to my TBR list. Thank you! <3 xo

    1. Thanks, Vashti. Sometimes one finds out about a real person who seems to have been in the middle of things, but they don’t seem to have come to anybody’s attention. I hope you enjoy it if you get to read it. Have a great Easter!

      Thank you, Sally. Happy Easter!
