By C.J. Sansom (Trade Paperback, 2014)
C.J. SANSOM REWRITES HISTORY IN A THRILLING NOVEL THAT DARES TO IMAGINE BRITAIN UNDER THE THUMB OF NAZI GERMANY.

1952. Twelve years have passed since Churchill lost to the appeasers and Britain surrendered to Nazi Germany. The global economy strains against the weight of the long German war against Russia still raging in the east. The British people find themselves under increasingly authoritarian rule--the press, radio, and television tightly controlled, the British Jews facing ever greater constraints.

But Churchill's Resistance soldiers on. As defiance grows, whispers circulate of a secret that could forever alter the balance of the global struggle. The keeper of that secret? Scientist Frank Muncaster, who languishes in a Birmingham mental hospital. Civil Servant David Fitzgerald, a spy for the Resistance and University friend of Frank's, is given the mission to rescue Frank and get him out of the country. Hard on his heels is Gestapo agent Gunther Hoth, a brilliant, implacable hunter of men, who soon has Frank and David's innocent wife, Sarah, directly in his sights.

  • "C.J. Sansom has long been one of my favorite writers, but DOMINION may be his most richly imagined book yet: it's a wonderful example of what the novel can do--a through-the-looking-glass glimpse into a world that might have been, and almost was." (Kate Atkinson, New York Times bestselling author of Life After Life).

  • "A dazzling thriller, detailed, absorbing, and rich. The best novel of its kind since Robert Harris's Fatherland." (Charles Cumming, New York Times bestselling author of The Trinity Six).

  • "Long and engaging. Rich and densely plotted. All too real." (Kirkus (starred review)).

  • "Intriguing. Page-turning. Delicious." (Library Journal (featured review)).

  • "Gripping . . . A race-against-time thriller set against an imaginative and internally consistent historical backdrop, the novel should definitely appeal to fans of alternate history, especially the WWII novels of Harry Turtledove or Robert Conroy, and, of course, Robert Harris' classic Fatherland." (Booklist).

  • "Tremendous." (The Guardian (UK)).

  • "Masterly." (The Independent (UK)).

  • "Exciting, sophisticated, and moving. There will be few better historical novels published this year." (The Times (UK)).
