"Spies and informers lurk. Period details are piquant. . . . Above
all there's suspense. As Graf and Kay plot and counterplot,
questions rise and fall like rockets. . . . V2 will keep you
pinned on a compelling trajectory."
-The Sunday Times
"Weav[es] a personal thriller on to a major historical tapestry. . . . The joy is in the history as much as the story."
-The Financial Times
"Engrossing. . . . Harris brings the past to life through vivid characterizations and clever plotting. Fans of superior historical fiction will be rewarded."
"A veteran historical novelist homes in on one of Hitler's last desperate hopes. . . . [An] enjoyable thriller with plenty of well-researched historical nuggets."
"[An] historical-fiction master. . . . Crosscutting between those launching the rockets and those on the receiving end proves to be a superb narrative device. . . . [This] novel combines fascinating technical detail with a wartime drama that finds human ambiguity on both sides of the battlefield."
