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.

'Berlin itself, the city and its inhabitants, meticulously observed and depicted... 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.' Source: Peter Millar, The Times
Pierre Frei was born in 1930 and grew up in Berlin. He worked as a freelance foreign correspondent, reporting from Rome, Cairo, New York and London, before retiring to his farm in Wales. Since 1990, Pierre Frei has lived at his chateau in south-west France.
