Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Saville’s debut novel makes an energetic leap into alternate history. Britain’s 1940 Dunkirk evacuation fails, and Lord Halifax and Hitler negotiate a peace that includes German control of a vast swath of Africa, from the Sahara to the Indian Ocean. Fast-forward to 1952, and Walter Hochburg, the psychopathic governor-general of Kongo, is building autobahns through the jungle paved with the ground-up corpses of Nazi soldiers (to plant Nazi spirit in Africa’s very soil). A small team of mercenaries led by Burton Cole, who has a personal score to settle with Hochburg, is hired to assassinate the governor-general, but the mercs are betrayed and pursued relentlessly by Hochburg and hordes of fanatical SS, providing Saville more opportunities for gun battles, carnage, and barbarity than most Hollywood action films. His alternate history is imaginative and superficially plausible; an author’s note cites actual Nazi interest in Africa and its resources. Many readers who study WWII and the Nazis might question this scenario, but, if they can suspend disbelief, they’ll enjoy the wild, running battle against contemporary history’s greatest villains. --Thomas Gaughan

Review

“What Guy Saville knows is violence: violence against animals, children, and those seeking change through the political process. He's spent a career facing it on the journalistic front lines and–admirably–raising public awareness against it, and now he's combined it with heavy research to breathe life into history's greatest villains.” ―Kirkus

“Saville gets everything right--providing suspenseful action sequences, logical but enthralling plot twists, a fully thought through imaginary world, and characters with depth.” ―PW

“A skin-of-the-teeth escape at the end foreshadows a series.” ―Kirkus

“Saville's debut novel makes an energetic leap into alternate history….they'll enjoy the wild, running battle against contemporary history's greatest villains.” ―Thomas Gaughan, Booklist

“an imaginative and entertaining journey” ―The Forward

The Afrika Reich has been meticulously researched, which raises it a significant cut above the average airport thriller.” ―BookBrowse

“[The] plot is clever, imaginative and, in its finale, wholly unexpected. In a crowded field, The Afrika Reich stands out as a rich and unusual thriller, politically sophisticated and hard to forget.” ―The Economist, Books of the Year 2011

“Set in a world in which Britain made peace with Hitler after 1940, this account of a mercenary mission to Africa makes for an engrossing and convincing debut.” ―Sunday Express, Books of the Year 2011

“Fatherland for an action movie age” ―Daily Telegraph

“An horrific reimaging of the Dark Continent” ―The Times

“A thoroughly enjoyable and compelling read” ―The Sun
