From the Publisher:
What if WWII went the other way? In this alternative-history novel, Deighton imagines a chilling world where British Command surrendered to the Nazis in 1941, Churchill has been shot, the King is in the dungeon, and the SS are in Whitehall. In occupied Britain, Scotland Yard conducts business as usual...only under the command of the SS. Detective Inspector Archer is assigned to what he believes is a routine murder case--until SS Standartenführer Huth arrives from Berlin with orders from Himmler himself to supervise the investigation. Soon, Archer finds himself caught in a high level, action-packed espionage battle.
|This is a spy story different from any other--one that only Deighton, with his flair for historical research and his narrative genius, could have written.
A writer of history books, war novels and cookbooks, Len Deighton is perhaps best known as a mystery writer, penning dark and cynical suspense novels featuring such heroes as British spy Bernard Samson and, in the film versions of the novels, a less glamorous, unnamed spy known as Harry Palmer. Educated in London at St. Martin's School of Art and Royal College of Art, Deighton worked as a pastry cook, railwayman, airline steward, and factory manager before becoming a best-selling author. "The Len Deighton Companion", a 1987 study of his work, confirmed that his greatest skills lay elsewhere.
