Summary

It is 1933, and a dead man has been found lying under railway arches in Berlin. An old soldier, hideously disfigured, he has been killed mysteriously. 

Gereon Rath is brought onto the case while his fiancée, Charlotte Ritter, blazes her own trail. Meanwhile, the Nazis consolidate their hold on power, the Reichstag is burned down and things become a lot worse not only for Berlin’s Jewish community but also for those police officers who can remain in action.

The shadow of the Nazis looms larger

Brilliant blend of detective novel and history, the characters seem like the proverbial frog in the saucepan the heat is rising but most don't know they are being cooked alive in the heat of 'The New Germany'.

Back on form

I found the last book in this series a bit lacklustre but Kutscher is back in cracking form with this one. There’s a net full red herrings for the anti-hero to get past but never does it get silly. Plus I’ve learned more German history from these books than ever in school.
