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)

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.
