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?

As usual another great read by Robert Harris. A real page turner set against the run up to the outbreak of WW2. The atmosphere and context, although fictional bring this period to life with believable characters both on the British and German side.

A gripping and fascinating thriller - Harris is a master of building up the tension through well developed characters and a great sense of historical knowledge.
