Description
From the best-selling author V2 and Fatherland—a WWII-era spy thriller set against the backdrop of the fateful Munich Conference of September 1938. Soon to be a Netflix film.With this electrifying novel about treason and conscience, loyalty and betrayal, "Harris has brought history to life with exceptional skill" (The Washington Post).Hugh Legat is a rising star of the British diplomatic service, serving at 10 Downing Street as a private secretary to the Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain. Paul von Hartmann is on the staff of the German Foreign Office—and secretly a member of the anti-Hitler resistance. The two men were friends at Oxford in the 1920s, but have not been in contact since. Now, when Hugh flies with Chamberlain from London to Munich, and Hartmann travels on Hitler's train overnight from Berlin, their paths are set on a disastrous collision course. And once again, Robert Harris gives us actual events of historical importance—here are Hitler, Chamberlain, Mussolini, Daladier—at the heart of an electrifying, unputdownable novel.

        November 6, 2017
        The 1938 Munich peace negotiations form the backdrop for this intelligent novel. Thriller Award–winner Harris (Conclave) presents the diplomatic give-and-take through the perspectives of two friends who have fallen out of touch: Hugh Legat of His Majesty’s Diplomatic Service and his Oxford schoolmate, Paul von Hartmann, who serves as a translator for the German Foreign Ministry. For Hugh, the international crisis coincides with the deterioration of his marriage. Paul is recruited by a group of conspirators hoping that Hitler’s militarily unrealistic plans to attack Czechoslovakia will lead his generals to support an effort to topple him. Meanwhile, Neville Chamberlain holds vigorous discussions with his cabinet about what he could and should do to avert what he believes will be a civilization-shattering conflict that will cost many British lives over “a quarrel in a faraway country between people of whom we know nothing.” Harris succeeds in not only transforming a familiar historical event into a novel of suspense but in making the derided Chamberlain sympathetic. 100,000-copy announced first printing. Agent: Michael Carlisle, Inkwell Management.

      • content: Vocally dexterous narrator David Rintoul guides listeners through this spy thriller by the bestselling author of FATHERLAND with a sure hand. Harris uses fascinating background characters to pull back the curtain on negotiations that could bring peace to Europe and head off the advance of Adolf Hitler and WWII. Rintoul portrays protagonist Hugh Legat, a personal aide of Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, with the assuredness of tone and pacing of an accomplished actor. There are a plethora of fascinating characters for Rintoul to portray, and he depicts each one with individuality and personality. Rintoul handles the rising tension well as the characters barrel toward the 1938 showdown in Munich between the earnest English and the power-hungry Germans. R.O. � AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine
