Summary:

FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF FATHERLAND, CONCLAVE AND AN OFFICER AND A SPY.

September 1938

Hitler is determined to start a war.

Chamberlain is desperate to preserve the peace.

The issue is to be decided in a city that will forever afterwards be notorious for what takes place there.

Munich.

As Chamberlain's plane judders over the Channel and the F├╝hrer's train steams relentlessly south from Berlin, two young men travel with secrets of their own.

Hugh Legat is one of Chamberlain's private secretaries; Paul Hartmann a German diplomat and member of the anti-Hitler resistance. Great friends at Oxford before Hitler came to power, they haven't seen one another since they were last in Munich six years earlier. Now, as the future of Europe hangs in the balance, their paths are destined to cross again.

When the stakes are this high, who are you willing to betray? Your friends, your family, your country or your conscience?

    A fantastic fictional history based read. Timeline and events very close to reality. Rintouls narration is first class. Highly recommended.

    Richard Harris paints a very detailed picture of an event many might already be familiar with. Harris takes us on a fictional journey of an actual event, which works wonderfully well. Helping one to better understand the sketchy details given in long gone school history lessons. Although my enjoyment came from this perspective, I have no reason not to believe that a younger listener, without any notion of the history surrounding the storyline, will find this book thoroughly enjoyable. Great author. Great narrator.

    A fantastic book very well written, kept you on the edge wanting to keep listening, the narration is excellent. The way the book is written takes you on a journey, as if you are standing in the corner of every room watching events unfold.
