Publisher's Summary

For 70 years they guarded the British Empire. Oblivion and Fogg, inseparable friends, bound together by a shared fate. 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?

What the Critics Say

"A brilliantly etched phantasmagoric reconfiguring of that most sizzling of eras - the twilight 20th." (James Ellroy)
"He is a political writer, an iconoclast and sometimes a provocateur ... Osama is a remarkable and ambitious work." (China Mieville on Osama)

    "Amazing!"

    That is honestly all I can say. This book went above and beyond all of my expectations. It's a moving story about superheroes in the vein of watchmen.

    "A very alternative history..."

    "Bodyguard of Lies" meets Marvel comics and the whole thing seems to stand up to close historical scrutiny ... Truly Amazing!
