Munich

by Robert Harris

Historical Fiction

Munich Synopsis

MUNICH, SEPTEMBER 1938 Hitler is determined to start a war. Chamberlain is desperate to preserve the peace. They will meet in a city which forever afterwards will be notorious for what is about to take place. As Chamberlain's plane judders over the channel and the Fuhrer's train steams south, two young men travel with their leaders. Former friends from a more peaceful time, they are now on opposing sides. As Britain's darkest hour approaches, the fate of millions could depend on them - and the secrets they're hiding. Spying. Betrayal. Murder. Is any price too high for peace?

Munich Press Reviews

Grips from start to finish . . . Munich captures the mood of the times: the suspicion and the fear, the political intrigue, the swagger of the Nazi machine and the widespread elation at the mistaken belief that war has been averted. Superb. - Simon Humphreys, Mail on Sunday

Harris's cleverness, judgment and eye for detail are second to none . . . his research is so impeccable that he could have cut all the spy stuff and published Munich as a history book. Harris's treatment of Britain's most maligned prime minister is so powerful, so persuasive, that it ranks among the most moving fictional portraits of a politician that I have ever read -=- Dominic Sandbrook, Sunday Times

An intelligent thriller . . . with exacting attention to historical detail - The Times, BOOKS OF THE YEAR

Atmospheric and fast-paced literary thriller . . . [it] grips from start to finish . . . Superb - Mail on Sunday

Unputdownable to the point of being dangerous: the house could have been on fire while I was reading and I wouldn't have noticed -- Jake Kerridge - Sunday Express
