Publisher's Summary

Miranda Brand is visiting Germany for what is supposed to be a month's vacation. But from the moment that Brigadier Brindley relates the story about a fortune in lost diamonds - a story in which Miranda herself figures in an unusual way - the vacation atmosphere becomes transformed into something more ominous. And when murder strikes on the night train to Berlin, Miranda finds herself unwillingly involved in a complex chain of events that will soon throw her own life into peril. Set against a background of war-scarred Berlin in the early 1950s, Death in Berlin is a consummate mystery from one of the finest storytellers of our time.

Why these narrators

Why oh why have American actors been employed to read M M Kaye's quintessentially English books. Yes they are all set overseas, but the heroines are all Brits or raised there yet for some reason the publisher has chosen to allow the bastardisation of their accents. It's a travesty of what they could have been and of what the original recordings were. I would have bought this whole set and the two great Indian sagas, but for most of them I can't even get through the sample without cringing. My advice - if you ever heard the old recordings by Virginia McKenna don't even try these - it's traumatising!

Good Old Fashioned Mystery

An interesting complex story ...very enjoyable. I had read most of MM Kaye books many years ago. But This is the first one I listened to. The narrator was very good. The writing style is one that depends on character development and plot rather than the modern novels use of graphic language and unnecessary sexual entanglements to advance a weak plot.
Well worth my credit.
