Description

"An intelligent thriller...with exacting attention to historical detail. The novel's power lies in the conflict between our hindsight and the characters' all-too-believable hopes and fears."
--The Times (UK), Best Historical Fiction of 2017

"Once again, Harris has brought history to life with exceptional skill."
--Patrick Anderson, The Washington Post

"[Harris's] writing remains lean and understated throughout Munich, even when the spy-craft starts. . . . The result is an entertaining mix of diplomacy and derring-do . . . history buffs should find it exhilarating."
--Doug Childers, The Richmond-Times Dispatch

"Harris has built a career upon painstakingly researched what-if stories centered on World War II, and with Munich, he weaves fiction into the fabric of history without even the tiniest hint of a seam. This is a fine addition to a fine writer's oeuvre."
--Bruce Tierney, Bookpage

"Densely researched, tightly constructed and deftly written."
--D.J. Taylor, The Wall Street Journal

"Thumbs up. Harris fashions an absorbing tale."
--Metro (London)

"Another thrilling historical novel from Robert Harris. [He's] on sure and familiar ground in Munich--he quickly settles into the mid-20th century setting that made Fatherland and Enigma so compelling, and the claustrophobic feel of the conference carriers on from last year's exploration of Vatican politics, Conclave. . . Against the intriguing backdrop of political machinations and brinkmanship is a thriller plot bursting to get out."
--The Guardian

"[A] master storyteller . . . Harris is an undoubted wordsmith."
--Express (London)

"Gripping . . . Harris is a marvelously compelling storyteller. . . . A historical novel, a novel of ideas, and a gripping thriller. . . . Harris writes with complete and compelling authority."
--The Scotsman

"Thriller-meister Robert Harris won't need this recommendation to top the bestseller charts, but he's getting it anyway. . . . Perfect prose . . . the menacing air of jackbroot brutality lurking between the lines. . . . It's hard to imagine how history could be told better."
--Sport Sunday (London)

"In Fatherland, Robert Harris's debut thriller, an aged, ailing Hitler is kept firmly off the page. In Munich, he walks, he talks, he rants. . . . A vivid recreation . . . Harris brings the history alive. He cleverly inserts arresting facts and detail into his narrative."
--The Times (London)

"A tense and subtle narrative of the 1938 deal that sold out the Czechs."
--Financial Times

"Engaging, informative, and quietly suspenseful."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Another surefire best-seller. A tautly constructed, compellingly written story."
--Booklist
