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". All the characters in "HHhH" are real. All the events depicted are true. But alongside the nerve-shredding preparations for the attack runs another story: when you are a novelist writing about real people, how do you resist the temptation to make things up? "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 improbably entertaining and electrifyingly modern, a moving and shattering work of fiction.

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 "HHhH is a highly original piece of work, at once charming, moving, and gripping" -- Martin Amis "HHhH blew me away. Binet's style fuses it all together: a neutral, journalistic honesty sustained with a fiction writer's zeal and story-telling instincts. It's one of the best historical novels I've ever come across." -- Brett Easton Ellis
