Otto and Leni thought they were safe: They escaped -- barely -- from war-torn Europe and are living as refugees in England. But now the Crown has recruited them: Great Britain wants them to go back. As spies!

Dropped behind enemy lines, Otto and Leni embark on a top-secret operation. Code name: Wolfsangel. Their mission? Capture the one person who can defeat the ultimate evil of Nazism! Der Fuhrer has destroyed Otto's and Leni's families, but what if the tables were turned? What if Hitler's ultimate legacy was in their hands?

By the screenwriter of Goldeneye, HITLER'S SECRET is a cinematic tale of revenge with an unexpected twist. A note by the author explains the truth behind the fiction and lets readers know what really became of history's greatest villains.

Good historical thriller for middle school readers interested in WWII history. While this is fiction, there is an interesting author’s note explaining the line between real events and the story. Osborne takes actual people and events and weaves a semi-believable story. The story is fun and exciting and it didn’t shy away from the terrible scenes of war.

Hitler’s Secret is a nice blend of action, adventure, friendship, and history. The story chapters alternate between characters so the reader is able to see different perspectives adding to the action. Leni and Otto are entertaining as characters. They face constant narrow escapes and they each have their own strengths and weaknesses.

Hitler’s Secret is a great way to spark young readers’ curiosity in history especially WWII. It is a good read for teens as well. There is a good deal of violence in the book but it is dealt with in an age appropriate way. The violence has to be there due to the historical element. Worth a read if you are a fan of action/adventure books.
