A chilling historical thriller set against the tense and volatile atmosphere of occupied post-war Berlin.

Occupied Berlin, 1945, American Sector. A young man inadvertently uncovers the body of a beautiful young woman trapped under a subway station: she has been sexually abused and strangled with a chain. In the scramble to identify the body, the victim is mistaken for an American and a local investigation becomes a matter for the US Military police. When the bodies of other young women are discovered it becomes clear that this is no isolated act of violence.

Daring, atmospheric and taut, Pierre Frei has fashioned a gripping thriller from the wreckage of Berlin. There is a powerful pulse buried deep in the rubble. The fighting may be over, but the killing goes on.

Review:

Startling and convincing... One of the best novels I've ever read set in this era --John Lawton, author of Black Out.

An ambitious novel, filled with brilliantly drawn characters, mesmerisingly readable and disturbingly convincing. --Sunday Telegraph

In the end it is Berlin itself, the city and its inhabitants, meticulously observed and depicted, that emerges as the true star of the story, flawed, cruel, seductively engaging and all too human. This is its best evocation since Len Deighton's Winter. --The Times
