A masterpiece of thriller writing, Fatherland is set in a brutal alternative world where Hitler has won the Second World War.

It is April 1964 and one week before Hitler's 75th birthday. Xavier March, a detective of the Kriminalpolizei, is called out to investigate the discovery of a dead body in a lake near Berlin's most prestigious suburb.

As March discovers the identity of the body, he uncovers signs of a conspiracy that could go to the very top of the German Reich. And, with the Gestapo just one step behind, March, together with an American journalist, is caught up in a race to discover and reveal the truth - a truth that has already killed, a truth that could topple governments, a truth that will change history.

A consistent career-long favourite of Waterstones’ customers, Robert Harris is a heavyweight of historical fiction with a knack for creating page-turning political thrillers with literary credence. Best known for the ‘what if’ masterpiece Fatherland and his Cicero series as well as the controversial Blairite-era roman à clef, The Ghost Harris is never less than consistently excellent, balancing on that most delicate tight-rope where challenging and thought-provoking literature meets page-turning entertainment.
