One of those hard to turn off audies. I'm partial to this type of story but good murder mystery set in post war Munich. Hope this turns into a series, anxiously awaiting next....

This story was everything I expected- action, historical insights, accuracy and a real sense of the privations of war on a defeated population. Like our hero, I came To North America as a 5 year old. I retained language of my birth and had heard my parents speak of terrible conditions after the war, lining up to get soup made from cow entrails, meager rations of food, etc. All this came to life in the novel. I appreciate the author ensuring that Americans and Germans had their good people and also corrupt ones. my Dad often called American soldiers Ammies which rhymes with gum miles. In the story it's considered a pejorative term but it was common usage in my father's era. This was like listening to a living, colorful history lesson without dry lecturing. Hope Mr Connell will continue this exciting series featuring Mason Collins.
