Prague 1942. Two Czechoslovakian parachutists are sent on a daring mission to assassinate Reinhard Heydrich - chief of the Nazi secret services. His boss is Heinrich Himmler but everyone in the SS says Himmler's brain is called 'Heydrich', which in German spells HHhH. All the characters in Lauren Binet's novel HHhH are real. All the events depicted are true. It is a panorama of the Third Reich told through the life of one outstandingly brutal man, a story of unbearable heroism and loyalty, revenge and betrayal. It is improbably entertaining and electrifyingly modern, a moving and shattering work of fiction.
HHhH is Laurent Binet's first novel and won the prestigious Prix Goncourt du premier roman and the Prix des Lecteurs du Livre de Poche. He lives and works in France.
