9780061006623: Fatherland

Fatherland is set in an alternative world where Hitler has won the Second World War. It is April 1964 and one week before Hitler's 75th birthday. Xavier March, a detective of the Kriminalpolizei, is called out to investigate the discovery of a dead body in a lake near Berlin's most prestigious suburb.

As March discovers the identity of the body, he uncovers signs of a conspiracy that could go to the very top of the German Reich. And, with the Gestapo just one step behind, March, together with an American journalist, is caught up in a race to discover and reveal the truth -- a truth that has already killed, a truth that could topple governments, a truth that will change history.

Review:

"Clever and ingenious... Its breeding is by Orwell, out of P. D. James, a detective story inside a future shock" ( Daily Mail)

"A writer who handles suspense like a literary Alfred Hitchcock" (NELSON MANDELA)

"Robert Harris has recreated the whole structure of a totally corrupt society in a way that makes the flesh creep" (JOHN MORTIMER)

"Powerful and chilling... convincing in every detail" (MARTHA GELLHORN)

"Gripping in the way John Buchan, Len Deighton and John LeCarré are. The writing is superb" (WOODROW WYATT)
