Publisher's Summary

A year after Germany's defeat, Gregor Reinhardt has been hired back onto Berlin's civilian police force. The city is divided among the victorious allied powers, but tensions are growing, and the police are riven by internal rivalries as factions within it jockey for power and influence with Berlin's new masters. When a man is found slain in a broken-down tenement, Reinhardt embarks on a gruesome investigation. It seems that a serial killer is on the loose, and matters only escalate when it's discovered that one of the victims was the brother of a Nazi scientist. Reinhardt's search for the truth takes him across the divided city and soon embroils him in a plot involving the Western Allies and the Soviets. And as he comes under the scrutiny of a group of Germans who want to continue the war - and faces an unwanted reminder from his own past - Reinhardt realizes that this investigation could cost him everything.


What the Critics Say

"Set in Berlin in 1947, McCallin's third novel featuring German detective Gregor Reinhardt (after 2014's The Pale House) is his best yet." (Publishers Weekly Starred Review)

Exceptional historical fiction novel in postwar Berlin!

This is a must read or listen to novel if you have ever wondered how the German people felt, survived and reacted to the Allied occupation during the postwar Berlin. The author has consistently developed an amazing story which intertwines smoothly with his two other novels into the escapades of Captain Reinhardt.

Nobody is better than John Lee to narrate the novel and give each character it's on identity!

I will no doubt be looking forward to the next novel!

Best yet

I was a bit anxious about buying this book because in a previous one Lee's female voices sounded so affected and phony I was exasperated. But with this book, he was superb. The plot is intricate but McCallin pulls it together with uncanny but likely insights into
what life and politics were like in a divided Berlin. His best book yet and very well read.
