Publisher's Summary

Berlin, 1930. Sound film is conquering the big screen, leaving many by the wayside: producers, cinema owners - and silent film stars. Investigating the violent on-set death of actress Betty Winter, Inspector Gereon Rath encounters the dark side of glamour and an industry in turmoil.

When his father requests that he help his friend, the mayor of Cologne, Konrad Adenauer, and his ex-girlfriend, Charly, makes a renewed attempt at rapprochement, things start to get out of hand. Trapped in the machinations of rival film producers, he roams Berlin's Chinese quarter and the city's underworld as he works ever closer to the edge of legality. Meanwhile the funeral of the murdered Horst Wessel leads to clashes between Nazis and Communists.

    "Silent Death is a really enjoyable listen"

    Silent Death is Gereon Rath's second outing in English (translated from the original German) in Silent Death Gereon Rath and the other members of A Division, Berlin Homicide are called in to investigate the deaths of several actresses who are transitioning from silent to talking movies. 


    As with the first novel in the series, Babylon Berlin, the narrative twists and turns so that you are not sure who or why the murders have been committed right until the end of the novel. Volker Kutscher manages intertwine several interesting sub-plots which adds to the narrative.


    Silent Death is a great listen, it's one of the few books I've read from cover in in sitting - truly excellent. Mark Meadows does a great job if narration
