A fictionalised account of Bertus Fukken, a German spy on the run in Britain in November 1940. The discovery of an enemy parachute announces the arrival of another German agent. In a country fearing invasion and on the alert for spies, MI5 are confident the missing man will soon be found. But as the days and weeks go by, with the parachutist still at large, the Security Service become concerned. This is the story of what followed, based upon declassified Security Service files, the author’s further researches and some speculation. Whilst trying to distinguish between the two, the reader is reminded that truth is often stranger than fiction.

When Tony Rowland retired, his daughter gave him a copy of ‘Writing a Novel and Getting Published for Dummies’, together with a short note – stop talking about it – write it!

‘Traitor Lodger German Spy’ is the result and reflects his many years interest in both espionage and the Second World War.
