MUNICH, SEPTEMBER 1938

Hitler is determined to start a war. Chamberlain is desperate to preserve the peace.

They will meet in a city which forever afterwards will be known for what is about to take place.

As Chamberlain's plane judders over the Channel and the Fuhrer's train steams south, two young men travel with their leaders. Once friends in a more peaceful time, they are now on opposing sides.

As Europe's darkest hour approaches, the fate of millions could depend on them - and on the secrets they're hiding.

Treason. Betrayal. Murder. Is any price too high for peace?


'It ranks among the most moving portraits of a politician that I have ever read'

'A brilliantly conducted spy novel' OBSERVER

Reviews

  • Grips from start to finish . . . Munich captures the mood of the times: the suspicion and the fear, the political intrigue, the swagger of the Nazi machine and the widespread elation at the mistaken belief that war has been averted. Superb.
    Simon Humphreys, Mail on Sunday
