Nazi-occupied Budapest, winter 1944. Miklos Farkas is handed a stolen copy of The Budapest Protocol, detailing the Nazis post-war plans. 65 years later, as the European Union launches the election campaign for the first President of Europe, Farkas is brutally murdered. His journalist grandson Alex unravels a chilling conspiracy rooted in the dying days of the Third Reich - a plan for a new Gypsy Holocaust.
The Budapest Protocol is a journey into Europe’s hidden heart of darkness...
"If this novel was a handbag it would be a black Chanel - beautifully made, perfect for every occasion and just a little old-fashioned (in a good way)."
(Kate Saunders, The Times)
"Adam LeBor has deployed the thriller format with delicacy, reverence, expertise and (the acid test for even the darkest plots) charm."
"A page-turning thriller with a meaty conspiracy theory that is rooted in historical fact and bristling with warnings against complacency. Would that all debut novels were so ambitious, timely and relevant."
