Description
London 1952: A dense, choking smog engulfs the city, in this brilliantly imagined novel from the creator of the Matthew Shardlake series, set in an alternative Britain in which Winston Churchill has lost to the appeasers and Britain has surrendered to Nazi Germany after Dunkirk. As the long German war against Russia rages on in the east, the British people endure under authoritarian rule. Defiance, though, is growing. Churchill's Resistance organization is increasingly a thorn in the government's side. And in a Birmingham mental hospital an incarcerated scientist, Frank Muncaster, may hold a secret that could change the balance of the world struggle. Civil servant David Fitzgerald, a spy for the Resistance, is given the mission to rescue his old friend Frank and get him out of the country. Soon David and a disparate group of activists become fugitives under the shroud of London's Great Smog, while David's Jewish wife Sarah finds herself in a world more terrifying than she ever could have imagined.

"An invented mid-20th century Britain that has the intricate detail and delineation of J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth.... A tremendous novel that shakes historical preconceptions while also sending shivers down the spine."Guardian (London)

"In this haunting, vividly imagined novel by C.J. Sansom, the hinge on which history turns is the resignation of Neville Chamberlain in May 1940.... Sansom is an admirably expansive and unhurried storyteller. His characters are all given personal histories and richly detailed pasts that serve to provide them with a depth more usually associated with literary fiction than the thriller. Their conversations do more than just drive forward the plot: they help to give substance and reality to the world they inhabit. The alternative Britain that Sansom constructs, a brilliant amalgam of the 1950s as they actually were and as they might have been, is entirely convincing.... The tale he sets within his parallel universe is at once exciting, sophisticated and moving."Sunday Times (London)
