Robert Harris - V2 (2nd Hand Paperback)
A WWII thriller about a German rocket engineer, a former actress turned British spy, and the Nazi rocket program.
It's November 1944 - Willi Graf, a German rocket engineer, is launching Nazi Germany's V2 rockets at London from Occupied Holland. Kay Connolly, once an actress, now a young English Intelligence officer, ships out for Belgium to locate the launch sites and neutralize the threat.
But when rumours of a defector circulate through the German ranks, Graf becomes a suspect. Unknown to each other, Graf and Connolly find themselves on opposite sides of the hunt for the saboteur.
Their twin stories play out against the background of the German missile campaign, one of the most epic and modern but least explored episodes of the Second World War. Their destinies are on a collision course.

". . . a gripping story of espionage that focuses on the deadly Nazi V2 rocket programme." - Waterstones.
'Immersive and engaging.' - The Guardian.
'V2 is a stunning achievement; a gripping page-turner that remains highly thought-provoking.' - The Daily Express.
'An immersive thriller set against a tense historical backdrop . . . For all its pace - you will zip through it in no time - the rewards are in the meta-story. But Harris's deceptively effortless prose means you barely notice. The effect is one of total immersion: you can feel the cold, taste the bacon sandwiches and imagine the trolleys squeaking across the floor.' - The Financial Times.
'I want to be the first to say it: Robert Harris scores a direct hit with V2. I was enthralled. Harris renders the historical detail with his customary verisimilitude.' - The Times.
