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.

"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 "Power 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
