Thought provoking regarding the supposed appeasing of Hitler
An excellent read that only lacks the sent of smell to fully evoke each scene. Well written and researched, it moved for me at the right pace, building tension and hope, while all the time there is the reality, dread almost, of what historically is to come.
The good news for Robert Harris is that I am now off to find another of his books, this being my first.
