Summary
"1952. Twelve years have passed since Churchill lost to the appeasers and Britain surrendered to Nazi Germany. The global economy strains against the weight of the long German war against Russia still raging in the east. The British people find themselves under increasingly authoritarian rule--the press, radio, and television tightly controlled, the British Jews facing ever greater constraints. But Churchill's Resistance soldiers on. As defiance grows, whispers circulate of a secret that could forever alter the balance of the global struggle. The keeper of that secret? Scientist Frank Muncaster, who languishes in a Birmingham mental hospital. Civil Servant David Fitzgerald, a spy for the Resistance and University friend of Frank's, is given the mission to rescue Frank and get him out of the country. Hard on his heels is Gestapo agent Gunther Hoth, a brilliant, implacable hunter of men, who soon has Frank and David's innocent wife, Sarah, directly in his sights."-- From dust jacket flap
Summary
The Great Smog. London. 1952. A dense, choking fog engulfs the city and beneath it, history is re-written. Spring 1940. The world is on the brink of the biggest war ever known. At a meeting at Downing Street, Britain's leaders decide who is to succeed the exhausted appeaser Chamberlain. But when Churchill is persuaded to serve under Halifax, history as we know it is turned on its head. Winter 1952. Though war rages on in the east, Britain is at peace with Nazi Germany and many now see the country as little more than a corrupt German satellite state. The free press has been suspended, the streets are patrolled by violent auxiliary police, the British Jews face ever tighter constraints and there are dark, terrible rumours about what is happening in the basement of Senate House, held by the German Gestapo. Meanwhile Civil Servant David Fitzgerald, recruited as a spy by Churchill's outlawed organisation Free Britain, must complete a mission of desperate importance. His old friend Frank Muncaster may have obtained top-secret information with striking ramifications. But David is not the only one looking for Frank, and soon the pair--along with their Free Britain allies and David's terrified wife Sarah--will find themselves fugitives in their own country, fleeing not just for their lives, but for the very future itself.
