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.

Preparations are under way for Hitler's 80th birthday celebrations in this book that details a victorious German army. Berlin is a city dominated by huge triumphal arches and monolithic architecture and the centre of a vast Third Reich that spreads from the Rhine to the Urals.Review:
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 LeCarre are. The writing is superb -- Woodrow Wyatt Clever and ingenious... Its breeding is by Orwell, out of P. D. James, a detective story inside a future shock Daily Mail
