Following the success of Conclave comes Robert Harris's new novel, bound for bestseller-dom as he returns to the historical terrain of his best-known book, Fatherland.

September 1938

Hitler is determined to start a war. Chamberlain is desperate to preserve the peace.

The issue is to be decided in a city that will forever afterwards be notorious for what takes place there. Munich.
 
As Chamberlain’s plane judders across the Channel and the Fürher’s train steams relentlessly south from Berlin, two young men travel with secrets of their own. Hugh Legat is one of Chamberlain’s private secretaries, Paul Hartmann a German diplomat and member of the anti-Hitler resistance. Great friends at Oxford before Hitler came to power, they haven’t seen one another since they were last in Munich together six years earlier. Now, as the future of Europe hangs in the balance, their paths are destined to cross again. 

When the stakes are this high, who are you willing to betray? Your friends, your family, your country or your conscience?

Four days in September, 1938. The backdrop is the summit meeting at which Hitler, Mussolini, and Neville Chamberlain allow Czechoslovakia to be partitioned at the demand of Nazi Germany; two more minor functionaries, sundered Oxford colleagues, conspire to meet in the respective German and English retinues. Even though we know how the big story will end, Harris' characteristic strong plotting, solid research, and touching humanity produce a highly tense and gripping spy narrative with the Gestapo lurking and the fate of nations being decided.
