Fatherland is set in April 1964 in a world where the Third Reich won WWII, Germany is now an impressive size and struggling with an ongoing war against Russia. When a senior-ranking official is discovered face-down in a lake just outside of Berlin, Xavier March, a Kripo investigator is called to the scene. When he starts tugging at strings it becomes clear that this is no accident, but who is responsible, what are they trying to cover and how far up does the rot go?
Harris writes with true verve & flair; drawing upon his comprehensive knowledge of WWII history and manages to combine this with a murder mystery that encompasses an entirely believable alternate past. His depictions of the totalitarian government and the political structures are intelligent and insightful, whilst his descriptions of Hitler's Berlin realised are chilling with their Wilhelmine edifices. Harris' characters are also very well fleshed out and I genuinely cared for their fates.
A simply excellent book that will keep you completely enthralled from the outset. Highly recommended!
