"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)

Format: Paperback
What would the world be like if Germany had indeed won the Second World War? This is a topic which will be the subject of many alternative history novels for many decades to come as it such an intriguing yet appalling thought.

Robert Harris has created a world in which the USA and Germany are the two remaining superpowers locked in a cold war. Europe has been subdued and is governed by puppet rulers and Russia (or what is left of it) is engaged in a war of attrition with Germany in the Ural Mountains.

The story follows the life of a disillusioned police investigator in Berlin who stumbles into a deadly murder case which eventually reveals the involvement of powerful high ranking Nazi officials and state secrets surrounding the Holocaust.

Imagine a world where you can trust nobody, where every room and phone may be bugged, where photocopiers are strictly controlled and where modern art, alcohol, smoking and even religion are severely frowned upon. If you can imagine such a dreadful world, you are in Robert Harris's Berlin in the sixties.

This book is certainly fascinating, most people think of `what might have been' at one time or another, yet Robert Harris has created a world where Germany actually won the Second World War. However, the most daunting prospect when reading this book is realising that this could have happened. Germany could have won the Second World War in different circumstances, what if they had done?

Read this book and imagine a world where they had!

Format: Paperback
I bought this book to read on a train journey home a few years ago. The journey lasted about an hour and a half, but I finally put the book down after reading the final word of the final page at 4am the next morning. Apart from showing my ticket to the conductor I don't think I talked to anyone in between. I was hooked. I even ignored the pretty brunette sat opposite me. Set in 1964, with Hitler having won the war and ruling over a Greater German Reich, a German policeman investigates a supposedly routine death and ends up uncovering a secret that some people will go to any length to protect. A great read that will leave an impact on you years after your first read.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Keen Reader TOP 50 REVIEWER on 22 Mar. 2015
Format: Paperback
I have read a few of the author’s books, and enjoyed them immensely (including Pompeii, and An Officer and a Spy). I am waiting eagerly for the long-awaited third book in the Cicero Trilogy to be published, hopefully in 2015.

This book is the author’s first published work, and takes a view of the world as it might have been if Germany had not lost the Second World War. The action in the novel takes place in the week starting 14 April 1964. This is a world where Germany has a huge and influential Reich covering much of Europe; where England, America and other countries fear Germany’s power, and where Russia has been influencing war on the Eastern Front since the 1940s. Germany is belligerent, militaristic and focused on its Social Democrat way of life. Those who conform may prosper; those who do not conform are likely to be denounced and sent out of the lucky country.

Xavier March is an investigator with the Berlin Kriminalpolizei; in the early morning of Tuesday 14 April 1964, he is called upon to attend a scene where a body has been pulled from Lake Havel. When March finds out who the body is, he is intrigued. But when he finds his investigation thwarted, and people less willing to talk to him, he becomes more determined, even against his own interests, to find out what has been going on. What he finds could change the world forever. And there are those who will stop at nothing to make sure he doesn’t get a chance to tell anyone else about it.

This is a great novel; I found nothing jarring or anachronistic in my reading of the world as it could be in this scenario where the outcome of WWII was different; I could ‘recognise’ the world that the author has put before us, and believe in the narrative of his story.
