Victory Square

 
9780007260850: Victory Square

‘Victory Square’ is the finale of Olen Steinhauer’s fascinating, award-winning cycle of Cold War novels.

Emil Brod, homicide investigator and reluctant state servant, has been made chief of police. When Brod first joined, retirement seemed as unlikely as the end of Communism itself. Now the Berlin Wall is coming down, the Warsaw Pact fragmenting and Brod is three days away from his final paycheque.

The death of Lieutenant General Kolev from a heart attack at his desk seems like a routine case to go out on. But then rumours of a pro-democracy coup reach him… at the same time as an autopsy report showing lethal amounts of narcotics in the General's blood.

Brod is forced to contemplate the chilling possibility that the General's death may signal the first cracks in the Communist State. Now, as old enemies from his past resurface, Brod must choose sides: between loyalty to the government, and loyalty to the country. But is it already too late?

Review:

Praise for ‘Victory Square’:

‘Well-plotted series…currents of rebellion and pro-democracy fervor sizzle in the air and this story catches all the danger and excitement of the historic moment’ New York Times

'His people are real, the crimes genuine, and he is telling larger truths about that era, making it unusually accessible' LA Times

'If you haven't yet discovered this gem of a series, I can't recommend them enough' The National Review

Praise for 'The Istanbul Variations':

'Great stuff.' Observer

Praise for 'The Vienna Assignment':

'Fascinating…clever…a beautifully written spy thriller.' Guardian

'Steinhauer has carved a niche for his well-researched Cold War thrillers….vividly captures the atmosphere and the mood of the time, with credible characters and impressive detail.' Sunday Telegraph

'Highly recommended.' Irish Times

'Steinhauer shows himself to be a master of plotting…he doesn't put a foot wrong…exquisitely written, full of well-drawn characters.' Irish Examiner

Praise for Olen Steinhauer:

'A powerful, thought-provoking literary thriller in the mould of Philip Kerr's “Berlin Noir” trilogy.' Daily Telegraph

'Think of the suspenseful erudition of Alan Furst's thrillers and Philip Kerr's eye-opening "Berlin Noir" trilogy… right up there on those stellar heights, casting new light on relatively recent history we thought we already knew everything about.' Chicago Tribune
