FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF V2 AND MUNICH

‘A master storyteller’ Observer

‘From what is it they flee?’
He took a while to reply. By the time he spoke the men had gone inside. He said quietly, ‘They killed the King.’

1660. Colonel Edward Whalley and his son-in-law, Colonel William Goffe, cross the Atlantic. They are on the run and wanted for the murder of Charles I. Under the provisions of the Act of Oblivion, they have been found guilty in absentia of high treason.

In London, Richard Nayler, secretary of the regicide committee of the Privy Council, is tasked with tracking down the fugitives. He’ll stop at nothing until the two men are brought to justice. A reward hangs over their heads – for their capture, dead or alive.

Act of Oblivion is an epic journey across continents, and a chase like no other. It is the thrilling new novel by Robert Harris.

‘The king of the page-turning thriller’ i Paper
‘Harris’s cleverness, judgment and eye for detail are second to none’ Sunday Times
‘Harris writes with a skill and ingenuity that few other novelists can match’ Financial Times
‘Harris is a master of historical fiction, a compelling author who brings to life the recent and ancient past’ TLS

Publisher Review

Harris's books are always supremely readable - he has practically trademarked the term 'master storyteller' -- Alex Preston * Observer * Harris's cleverness, judgment and eye for detail are second to none -- Dominic Sandbrook * Sunday Times * The master of the intelligent thriller * Daily Telegraph * [Harris] writes with a skill and ingenuity that few other novelists can match * Financial Times * I have been waiting for most of my life for Robert Harris to write a novel that is not gripping, insightful and entertaining. I am waiting still -- Ben Macintyre * The Times *
