Publisher's Summary

Karin Müller, sidelined from the murder squad in Berlin, jumps at the chance to be sent south to Halle-Neustadt, where a pair of infant twins have gone missing. But Müller soon finds her problems have followed her to Halle-Neustadt. She and her team are forbidden by the Stasi from publicising the disappearances, lest they tarnish the town's image. Meanwhile, in the eerily nameless streets and tower blocks, a child snatcher lurks, and the clock is ticking to rescue the twins alive....

What the Critics Say

"Deft, assured storytelling, a compelling new detective and a fascinating setting - I was up late to finish it!" (Gilly Macmillan, author of Burnt Paper Sky)
"One of the best reads I've had in ages. With its masterful intertwining of dual storylines and its stark portrayal of life behind the Berlin Wall, this is a cracking debut." (David Jackson, author of best-selling Cry Baby)

    "kept me.interested"

    I listened to this before book one. Didn't look to realise there was one. Have since listened to both. The characters are believable and the story is interesting to follow if a little predictable in places. What's missing is thorough explanation of the political background, so needed to bone up.a.bit.as it's.not.the same.as.KGB . ie Child.44

    I have varied rading and listening tastes, I particularly enjoy 20th Centuary eauropean history and I also enjoy historical fiction.

    Story
    "sadly very similar to Stasi Child"

    Oberleutnant Karin Muller is back in David Young's second offering Stasi Wolf.

    It's July 1975, Oberleutnant Muller, has been called away from Berlin to investigate the disappearance of 4-week old twins in Halle-Neustadt one of whom has already been found dead.  Now the race is on to find the second of the twins.  Karin Muller is also having family problems impact of which has long-lasting consequences for her.  Thankfully, her trusty team, Verner Tilsner and Johannes Schmidt also makes a welcome return.

    After reading Young's debut novel, Stasi Child, I was really looking forward to getting stuck into this one.  Whilst I really like David Young's style of writing and feel that the books are well researched, I do feel that this book is very similar to Stasi Child in content. By which I mean this book involves missing babies, whilst the first is about the murder of a teenagers. It could be argued that the use of the murder of one baby and the recovery of the other was used to get Muller back into the Kripo Murder Commission, after she had been side-lined following her adventures in the Harz mountains  (see Stasi Child) However, I Cant help feeling slightly disappointed that the characters and plot had not been developed more. I mean, I would like Muller and her team to move away from child centred cases and perhaps deal with murder or violent crime involving adults


    Julia Barrie does a good job in narrating this book
