Fatherland is set in an alternative world where Hitler has won the Second World 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.

Industry Reviews

"Clever and ingenious... Its breeding is by Orwell, out of P. D. James, a detective story inside a future shock" * Daily Mail *
"Gripping in the way John Buchan, Len Deighton and John LeCarre are. The writing is superb. This novel lifts its author into a new and superior class" * The Times *
"The highest form of thriller... non-stop excitement" * The Times *
"Powerful and chilling... convincing in every detail" * Daily Telegraph *
"A writer who handles suspense like a literary Alfred Hitchcock" * Guardian *

dark and suspenseful


what would happen if Hitler had won the war. a gripping, chilling and suspenseful novel set in 1964 on the outskirts of Berlin, one week until Adolf Hitlers 75th birthday. Germany is run by tiers of men and women in uniforms. a cold and suspicious society, duly brain washed to follow the rules. a murder, an investigation and one's man quest to uncover the shocking events during World War II and all the dangers that entails. a dark and futuristic fantasy, full of scary characters about one man (and woman) who bucked the system in an attempt to unlock the truth. brilliantly written, impossible to put down to its final and gripping end.
