This book by Len Deighton is set in London, 1941, after the German victory.  Churchill is dead, the king is imprisoned in the Tower, the queen and princesses are in New Zealand.  There is a murder and Superintendent Douglas Archer investigates.  Of course, it turns out to be more than a simple murder (if there is really any such thing in fiction) and soon Archer finds himself dealing with the German hierarchy and the Resistance.  All in all, it was an interesting read.

I have two more to read for the Eclectic Reader challenge, am just about to start Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen, and haven't yet finished the anthology Epic: Legends of Fantasy.  I'm not really a fan of short stories and some of these are more novellas, but no doubt I will get there.
