What if Hitler had won the 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.

Reviews

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

The highest form of thriller... non-stop excitement

The Times

Tightly constructed... grips as tightly as a Nazi's glove

Independent on Sunday

A fantastic thriller... The final solution is an utter surprise. Harris reaches it with speed, conveying a whole culture of grotesquery and kitsch

Mail on Sunday

Ingenious... fast-paced and beautifully written
