9780553702293: Fatherland

Fatherland is set in an alternative world where Hitler has won the Second World War. It is April 1964 and one week before Hitler's 75th birthday. Xavier March, a detective of the Kriminalpolizei, is called out to investigate the discovery of a dead body in a lake near Berlin's most prestigious suburb.

As March discovers the identity of the body, he uncovers signs of a conspiracy that could go to the very top of the German Reich. And, with the Gestapo just one step behind, March, together with an American journalist, is caught up in a race to discover and reveal the truth -- a truth that has already killed, a truth that could topple governments, a truth that will change history.

From AudioFile:

The year is 1964. Nazi Germany has won WWII, Hitler is alive and well, and Joseph P. Kennedy is president of the United States. Berlin detective Xavier March enters this mad world to investigate a drowning and instead finds murder, suspicion, and a terrifying secret. The listener is thrust into the plot from the start. There's no back-story, no explanations--just satisfying intimacy and immediacy, as in film noir. This BBC Radio 4 full-cast production truly creates an audio movie, saturated with spot-on sound effects. The trains, the cheap cigarettes, and the cold drizzle surround you. Excellent on the ears and provocative in the "what ifs" of alternate history. B.P. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
