I am not usually one to read fiction, but when I am travelling solo I like to have a book that is easy to escape into. My fiction of choice is usually based in history (surprise, surprise), as I like an element of truth and reality in what I am reading.
The Ludwig Conspiracy by Oliver Potzsch was the novel I took with me on my most recent trip to Morocco, and it more than lived up to the history-based fictional escape that I wanted.
Based on legends that have been recorded about the actual King Ludwig II of Bavaria, the book takes you on a journey throughout the King's storied history, actual historic sites, and a Dan Brown-esque thrilling story.
