Description

A special edition of Deighton's classic thriller, the first and certainly greatest `what-if?' novel about the Second World War, to tie in with the new major BBC series starring Sam Riley and adapted by the writers of Skyfall and Spectre. In February 1941 British Command surrendered to the Nazis. Churchill has been executed, the King is in the Tower and the SS are in Whitehall... For nine months Britain has been occupied - a blitzed, depressed and dingy country. However, it's `business as usual' at Scotland Yard run by the SS when Detective Inspector Archer is assigned to a routine murder case. Life must go on. But when SS Standartenfuhrer Huth arrives from Berlin with orders from the great Himmler himself to supervise the investigation, the resourceful Archer finds himself caught up in a high level, all action, espionage battle.show more

Review quote

`A brilliant picture of Britain under German rule' Sunday Telegraph `One of Deighton's best. Apart from his virtues as a storyteller, his passion for researching his backgrounds gives his work a remarkable factual authority.' The Observer `Len Deighton is the Flaubert of the contemporary thriller writers... there can be little doubt that this is much the way things would have turned out if the Germans had won the war.' Michael Howard, Times Literary Supplement `We have long admired Len Deighton as one of Britain's finest thriller writers, so were very excited when asked if we would be interested in adapting SS-GB.' Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, writers of Skyfall and SPECTREshow more
