"Gripping.... (Schenke's) unrelenting and dangerous search for the truth takes him into the dark heart of WWII-era Berlin. Scarrow keeps the pages turning with brisk action, well-drawn characters, and a gift for historical detail." Publishers Weekly
As Germany strangles under the tight grip of the Nazi Party, the frozen winter of 1940 brings even more reasons to fear the dark in the crackling new WWII crime novel from #1 Sunday Times bestselling author Simon Scarrow – perfect for fans of Philip Kerr’s Berlin Trilogy, Robert Ludlum, Andrew Gross, and William Christie…
One freezing night in 1940 Berlin, an SS doctor and his wife return from an evening mingling with their fellow Nazis at the concert hall. By the time the sun rises, the doctor will be lying lifeless in a pool of blood…
The hurried and official version of the Reich is suicide, but Smesler’s widow doesn’t believe it. At the risk of running afoul of the Gestapo, neither does Criminal Inspector Horst Schenke. The warnings to drop the investigation only compel Schenke to dig deeper. Then Schenke learns of the suspicious death of a child in a remote clinic outside Potsdam.
At first, the cases seem unconnected, but soon chilling links emerge that point to a terrifying secret. Schenke isn’t the only one in jeopardy. So is everyone within his circle, including Smesler’s widow who has a secret of her own.
Under a pitiless regime, how deep into hell are they willing to go to find the truth? And what will it take to make it out alive?
