"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."
-Publishers Weekly

"A veteran historical novelist homes in on one of Hitler's last desperate hopes. . . . [An] enjoyable thriller with plenty of well-researched historical nuggets."
-Kirkus Reviews

"[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."
