Description
April 1945: From the ruins of Berlin, a Luftwaffe transport plane takes off carrying secret papers belonging to Adolf Hitler. Half an hour later, it crashes in flames. April 1983: In a bank vault in Switzerland, a German magazine offers to sell more than 50 volumes of Hitler's secret diaries, with an asking price of $4 million. Hailed on publication as a classic, written in the gripping style of his novels like Fatherland, Pompeii, and The Ghost, this nonfiction account by Robert Harris tells the story of the biggest fraud in publishing history.

"The thrilling, intricate and sadly hilarious anatomy of a swindle.... EHaris solves the mystery of how obvious dross was snatched as gold."Daily Mail (London)

"Especially interesting are Harris's colorful profiles of the leading players, including Gerd Heidemann, the German reporter who 'found' the diaries, and Hugh Trevor-Roper, the Oxford don who, to his lasting regret, originally authenticated the documents."Library Journal
