    Act of Oblivion

    In his new novel, the bestselling author of Munich and V2 tells the story of the greatest manhunt of the seventeenth century.

    '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, General Edward Whalley and Colonel William Goffe, father- and son-in-law, 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 of £100 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 a thrilling new novel by Robert Harris.
