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 *
Harris's cleverness, judgment and eye for detail are second to none . . . his research is so impeccable that he could have cut all the spy stuff and published Munich as a history book. Harris's treatment of Britain's most maligned prime minister is so powerful, so persuasive, that it ranks among the most moving fictional portraits of a politician that I have ever read -- Dominic Sandbrook * Sunday Times *
An intelligent thriller . . . with exacting attention to historical detail * The Times, BOOKS OF THE YEAR *
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 -- Jake Kerridge * Sunday Express *
