From the internationally best-selling author of Fatherland and the Cicero Trilogy--a new spy thriller about treason and conscience, loyalty and betrayal, set against the backdrop of the fateful Munich Conference of September 1938.

Hugh Legat is a rising star of the British diplomatic service, serving at 10 Downing Street as a private secretary to the Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain. Paul von Hartmann is on the staff of the German Foreign Office--and secretly a member of the anti-Hitler resistance. The two men were friends at Oxford in the 1920s, but have not been in contact since. Now, when Hugh flies with Chamberlain from London to Munich, and Rikard travels on Hitler's train overnight from Berlin, their paths are set on a disastrous collision course. And once again, Robert Harris gives us actual events of historical importance--here are Hitler, Chamberlain, Mussolini, Daladier--at the heart of an electrifying, unputdownable novel.

Four days in September, 1938. The backdrop is the summit meeting at which Hitler, Mussolini, and Neville Chamberlain allow Czechoslovakia to be partitioned at the demand of Nazi Germany; two more minor functionaries, sundered Oxford colleagues, conspire to meet in the respective German and English retinues. Even though we know how the big story will end, Harris' characteristic strong plotting, solid research, and touching humanity produce a highly tense and gripping spy narrative with the Gestapo lurking and the fate of nations being decided.
