Until one night in Berlin, in the aftermath of the Second World War, and a secret that tore them apart.But there must always be an account . . . and the past has a habit of catching up to the present.Now, recalled to the Retirement Bureau from which no one can retire, Fogg and Oblivion must face up to a past of terrible war and unacknowledged heroism - a life of dusty corridors and secret rooms, of furtive meetings and blood-stained fields - to answer one last, impossible question:What makes a hero?*******************Praise for VIOLENT CENTURY:'Vintage Lavie, and also I think his most fully accomplished novel yet.
