Hamburg, 1947. A ruined city occupied by the British who bombed it, experiencing the coldest winter in living memory. Food is scarce; refugees and the homeless crowd into shantytowns and sheds. There is a killer on the loose, and all attempts to find him or her have failed.
Plagued with worry about his missing son, Frank Stave is a career policeman with a tragedy in his past that is driving his determination to find the killer. With the help of his colleague Maschke from the vice squad and Lt MacDonald from the British military, Stave has to find out why - in the wake of a wave of atrocity, the grim Nazi past and the bleak attempts by his German countrymen to re-create a country from the apocalypse - someone is still dedicated to murder.
A spine-tingling portrayal of pure evil, with multiple twists, turns and subplots. What, or who, will rise from the ashes?

A wonderful new find
So happy i found this book. Listened to it and immediately bought the new one, The Wolf Children. Please Audible, buy the English translations of the rest of the author's books.
The story was compelling but what i loved the most is having the story set in a time and place that i knew little about, namely early post WWII Germany.
I am hooked. And i don't often take time to write a review.
He didn't get in the way of the story.
