Robert Harris: Scandalous Notes image

A prime minister writes obsessively to the young women he’s infatuated with, sharing the most sensitive matters of state. Precipice, by multi award-winning author of multiple bestsellers, Robert Harris, is set in 1914 and tells the thrilling story of an affair with history-altering implications. Talking with David Stenhouse, the extraordinarily prolific, million-selling author of Fatherland and Pompeii talks about drawing from history and a country on the brink.
