About the Event

In an exclusive online event, Robert Harris, author of thirteen bestselling novels including the Cicero Trilogy, Fatherland, and An Officer and a Spy, will be chatting with Jon Snow, revered journalist and much-loved news presenter about his new novel V2.

Join them as Robert Harris launches his latest novel in which he returns to Nazi Germany to tell the story of the V2 rocket. On the brink of defeat, Hitler commissioned 10,000 V2s – ballistic rockets that carried a one-ton warhead at three times the speed of sound, which he believed would win the war. In a story with the same level of historical detail, depth and intrigue as we’ve come to expect, hear Robert’s own insight into another thriller you can’t put down, and his characters that pop from the page.

The event will also feature an audience Q&A, giving you a chance to ask those questions you’ve always wanted to know from the mind of a creative genius. This is definitely a conversation you don’t want to miss!

All tickets include a signed copy of the book (RRP £20). Tickets are £20 + £3 postage and packaging. V2 is published on Thursday 17 September, and should reach your door in the week after publication.

The Daily Telegraph
"It perhaps succeeds as a literary novel, but as a thriller it never quite takes off."
The Times
"a warning about toxic futility and the ferocious propaganda needed to fuel it. His timing is... impeccable."
Evening Standard
"The Nazis’ V2 rocket programme is seen through the eyes of a conflicted German and a female air force office in a familiar but absorbing thriller"
The Observer
"the richly talented Harris returns to his favourite period of history"
Daily Mail

Instead, along with his friend Werner von Braun, he has helped create the world's most sophisticated weapon - the V2 ballistic missile, capable of delivering a one-ton warhead that travels at three times the speed of sound.In a desperate gamble to avoid defeat, Hitler orders 10,000 to be built.
