By Robert Harris
September 1938. Hitler is determined to invade Czechoslovakia. The British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, is desperate to avoid what would certainly be the war following such a move. The city of Munich, Germany, is to be the site of an eleventh hour meeting between them. Harris gives us actual events of historical importance — here are Hitler, Chamberlain, Mussolini, and Daladier at the precipice of a second world war at the heart of an electrifying novel.
