"Set over four days against the backdrop of the Munich Conference of September 1938, Munich follows the fortunes of two men who were friends at Oxford together in the 1920s. Guy Legat is a rising star of the British diplomatic service, serving in 10 Downing Street as a private secretary to the Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain. Guy is 34 years old, and married to the beautiful and brittle Kay. Rikard von Holz is on the staff of the German Foreign Office--and secretly a member of the anti-Hitler resistance. They have not been in contact for more than a decade. But when Guy flies with Chamberlain from London to Munich, and Rikard travels on Hitler's train overnight from Berlin, their paths are set on a collision course--with dramatic results. Munich is a spy thriller about treason and conscience, loyalty and betrayal, filled with real-life characters--Hitler, Chamberlain, Mussolini, Daladier--and actual events."--

Four days in September, 1938. The backdrop is the summit meeting at which Hitler, Mussolini, and Neville Chamberlain allow Czechoslovakia to be partitioned at the demand of Nazi Germany; two more minor functionaries, sundered Oxford colleagues, conspire to meet in the respective German and English retinues. Even though we know how the big story will end, Harris' characteristic strong plotting, solid research, and touching humanity produce a highly tense and gripping spy narrative with the Gestapo lurking and the fate of nations being decided.
