Drawing on the Nazis' original plans for the Jews, Guy Saville has meticulously imagined a world-that-nearly-was to tell an epic tale of love, revenge and survival.

1953 and there has been no holocaust, rather all Jews have been exiled to Madagascar and ex-mercenary Burton Cole risks his life and the fate of the world to rescue the woman he loves.

The Madagaskar Plan by Guy Saville is second in this exciting series of alternative histories that began with The Afrika Reich. Perfect for any fan of Robert Harris or Len Deighton.

July 2015 eBook of the Month.

Circe

Circe is the amazing sequel to The Song of Achilles by Madelline Miller.

"I remember Circe was one of the challenges met by Odysseus, the one who turned men into pigs. The beautiful character who narrates this story is that same “wicked witch” but a far cry from how Homer portrayed her. She is lovely, misunderstood, wilful and brilliant, a strong woman slowly growing into her power." - Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

The Madagaskar Plan by Guy Saville

1953. Britain and her Empire are diminished. Nazi Germany controls Europe and a vast African territory. There has been no Holocaust. Instead, the Jews have been exiled to Madagaskar, a tropical ghetto ruled by the SS. Returning home after a disastrous mission to Africa, ex-mercenary Burton Cole finds his lover has disappeared. Desperate to discover her, he is drawn into a conspiracy that will lead him back to the Dark Continent. Meanwhile Walter Hochburg, Nazi Governor of Kongo, has turned his attention to Madagaskar. Among the prisoners are scientists who could develop him a weapon of unimaginable power. But Hochburg is not the only one interested in Madagaskar. The British plan to destroy its naval base to bring America into a war against the Reich. They have found the ideal man for the task: Reuben Salois, the only Jew to have escaped the ghetto. The only one brave, or foolhardy, enough to return. These three men will converge on Madagaskar. The fate of the world is in their hands...

Reviews

'Saville gives us an horrific reimagining of the Dark Continent' The Times

'[the] plot is clever, imaginative and, in its finale, wholly unexpected. In a crowded field, THE AFRIKA REICH stands out as a rich and unusual thriller, politically sophisticated and hard to forget. Economist Fatherland for an action movie age' Daily Telegraph

'A thoroughly enjoyable and compelling read' Sun

'This graphic, pacy alternate history thriller is scarily convincing.' Australian

'An enthralling look at the horror that might have been if Germany was not defeated' Sydney Daily Telegraph
