Product details

In 1941, Larry Zagorski was a naive young writer of science-fiction. Seven decades on, he looks back on that crucial year and traces his place in a mysterious web - one that connects the Second World War with the Space Age, stretches from London to Cuba and Southern California, and links Ian Fleming with Rudolf Hess in a conspiracy that reverberates in the present. Could this be the secret history of the 20th century? In this thrilling tale of spies and propagandists, the conned and the heartbroken, dreamers and fanatics, the question is: who will you believe?

It may be the ideal holiday read for those who like to take their brains with them on vacation. Mark Lawson, Guardian Highly entertaining and perhaps even mind-expanding, Arnott's high-class conjuring act shows that truth really is stranger than fiction. Phil Baker, The Sunday Times A supremely intelligent book as well as a surprisingly warm one. Roz Kaveney, Independent Arnott offers a brightly coloured portrait of our times that is alternatively intimate and epic...The House of Rumour is a brilliant achievement that invites repeated readings James Kidd, Independent on Sunday If this is that dark Prince Arnott's Jonbar Hinge, the future looks bright. Andrew Anthony, Observer A potent mix of fact and fiction that takes on 20th-century history but remains a page-turner Elle The House of Rumour is a page-turner with exceptional style, depth, thought, camp, counter-history and intrigue. It's both sci-fi/fantasy pulp and an ambitiously epic work of cosmic proportions: a welcome paradox of a novel that boldly toys with the boundaries between high and low-brow art. Kirkus Review It isn't a book, it's a revelation. Geek Syndicate blog
