East Berlin, 1975: When Oberleutnant Karin Müller is called to investigate a girl's body at the foot of the wall, she realises this is a death like no other. It seems the girl was trying to escape - but from the West.
The Stasi want her to discover the identity of the girl but assure Müller the case is otherwise closed. This is not a regime that tolerates a curious mind, and Müller doesn't realise that the trail she's following will lead her dangerously close to home....
"Deep and dark, this debut is utterly gripping, sucking you in straight from the get go. Fascinating backdrop, well observed characters and a corker of an ending. Superb." (Nikki Owen, author of
The Spider in the Corner of the Room)

A great detective story set in a world that is not easy to navigate for authors who don't read German. However, David Young did an excellent job of presenting the GDR and I would recommend this book. I really enjoyed it.
