September, 1938: Hitler is determined to start a war. Chamberlain is desperate to preserve the peace. As Chamberlain’s plane judders over the Channel and the Führer’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.

"A new spy thriller set over the four days of the 1938 Munich Conference as the world waits for war. From the Walter Scott Prize winning author of Conclave and Fatherland. “Atmospheric and fast-paced literary thriller […] (it) grips from start to finish […] Superb.” MAIL ON SUNDAY “Unputdownable to the point of being dangerous: the house could have been on fire while I was reading and I wouldn’t have noticed.” SUNDAY EXPRESS"
