STAR RATINGS GUIDE

Fast paced action thriller set in a terrifying world.

THE BIRDICT

💜 The fact that this is a thriller first and alternative history second makes it all the more chilling, By making the setting seem almost incidental, Harris's portrayal of this dystopia is all the more powerful.

💛 The obvious comparison is The Man in the High Castle, written a year earlier than this.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

🎧 Michael Jayston gives an intense performance worthy of a true action hero. Female characters don't come across brilliantly though. Jayston's voice is just too deep.

Fatherland

THE BLURB

Fatherland is set in an 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.
