This is the German language translation of Fatherland.

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!

I'm reading the German translation of Fatherland to keep my hand in with my German, and it's proving to be a delight. Robert Harris sets the scene and the tone for this gripping story from the word go. Much like John Grisham, you feel you could be there at the same time. The characters' personalities, good, bad or just plain indifferent, come straight to the fore. I haven't been able to put this novel down. It's given me a page-turner which is making the bleak January train journeys to and from work whizz past and is helping me to maintain my German no end. Robert Harris writes with an easy fluency: I only wish I could too!
