THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER Two men have been enlisted to kill the head of the Gestapo. This is Operation Anthropoid, Prague, 1942: two Czechoslovakian parachutists sent on a daring mission by London to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich - chief of the Nazi secret services, 'the hangman of Prague', 'the blond beast', 'the most dangerous man in the Third Reich'. His boss is Heinrich Himmler but everyone in the SS says 'Himmler's brain is called Heydrich', which in German spells HHhH. HHhH is a panorama of the Third Reich told through the life of one outstandingly brutal man, a story of unbearable heroism and loyalty, revenge and betrayal. It is a moving and shattering work of fiction. Laurent Binet's highly anticipated new novel, The Seventh Function of Language, is available for pre-order now...
"Vividly recreates the assassination of Heydrich and its consequences" -- John Le Carre * Telegraph * "Laurent Binet's HHhH is hard to categorise. All is can say is that it has the same gravity-defying balance of weight and light as early Milan Kundera" -- Janice Turner * The Times * "Utterly amazing ... likely to make you gasp, laugh and cry often within a few pages" * Savidge Reads * "A novel of great verve and originality... a heart-quickening climax and the undeserved satisfaction of feeling privy to what really happened" * Strong Words * "HHhH is a highly original piece of work, at once charming, moving, and gripping" -- Martin Amis
