Philip Kerr sadly died in 2018. However we were fortunate enough to get one final Bernie Gunther book published posthumously in 2019.
Now his UK publisher Quercus has published Hitler’s Peace, an older alternate history novel that apparently has never seen a UK edition before.
A hardback edition is out today and a paperback should follow later this year.
A gripping alternative history thriller set in the Second World War, from the internationally acclaimed and bestselling author of the Bernie Gunther novels.
Autumn 1943. Hitler knows he cannot win the war: now he must find a way to make peace. FDR and Stalin are willing to negotiate; only Churchill refuses to listen. The upcoming Allied Tehran conference will be where the next steps – whatever they are – will be decided.
Into this nest of double- and triple-dealing steps Willard Mayer, OSS agent and FDR’s envoy to the conference. His job is to secure the peace that the USA and Hitler now crave. The stakes couldn’t be higher.
With his sure hand for pacing, his firm grasp of historical detail, and his explosively creative imagination about what might have been, Philip Kerr has fashioned a totally convincing thinking man’s thriller in the great tradition of Eric Ambler and Graham Greene.
Hitlers Peace is published in hardback in the UK on 16 April 2020.
