The Author

author picture

Chris Petit is the author of The Psalm Killer and Back from the Dead, and a former editor of London's Time Out magazine. He is also a filmmaker whose directorial credits include Radio On and Chinese Boxes, and his documentaries have won several awards. He lives in London, where he is at work on his next novel, to be published in hardcover by Atria Books.


The Novel

An epic thriller, spanning six decades and three continents, tracing a history of secret deals dating back to WWII. In the war, Willi Schmidt was a Swiss shoesalesman with a desire to get involved. He dealt blackmarket leather for Nazi boots and information for US intelligence. When Joe Hoover saw him fall into a freezing river in 1945, no-one asked any questions. Almost sixty years later, Hoover receives a call and a package. The call is from an old SS contact convinced Willi is alive. The package is from someone who wants to scare him. Falling in with a journalist investigating contemporary Neo-Nazis, Hoover is drawn back into the past - to his days as a bagman for corrupt American spymaster Alan Dulles, drinking and dealing with Nazi officers in the supposedly neutral cities of Zurich, Istanbul, and Budapest. At each step, he finds the shadow of Willi Schmidt and the spectre WWII's most grotesque and enduring legacy - a trade in people. Chris Petit's masterly new thriller unpicks history to show what really goes on in its darkest corners.


Reviews

The Times--Ambitious and intelligent...a well written and researched CATCH-22 'noir'

Metro--‘A fascinatingly complex and paranoid espionage narrative, with intensely focused prose... a fine novel that puts Petit in the first rank of his genre’

New Statesman--Petit is a writer of considerable imaginative daring

Daily Mirror--'A deadly, Le-Carresque chase'

Time Out--'A darkly compelling and ambitious trawl through sixty years of covert history - imaginative and unsettling'
