‘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 SPECTRE

The author interplays the rivalries between the Wehrmacht, the Gestapo, and the Wafen SS to heighten the tension. The murder that Archer's "Murder Squad" investigates is of a scientist killed in his apartment and anyone who knows anything isn't talking. That leads to the intrigue, which incorporates an active underground, a recently arrived senior SS member who tries to take over at the yard, Archer's minimal family life, and a new-found love.
Mr. Deighton wends through the complex and active plot with plausible encounters and tops it with an exciting skirmish involving U.S. Marines. For mystery and thriller fans, he makes it seem like it actually happened. Highly recommended.
