Summary

The Stasi and MI6 clash in this gripping Cold War crime thriller, from the award-winning author of Stasi Child.

Dresden, East Germany, 1980.

A man's body is found buried in concrete at a building site in the new town district. When People's Police Homicide Captain Karin Müller arrives at the scene, she discovers that all of the body's identifiable features have been removed - including its fingertips.

The deeper Müller digs, the more the Stasi begin to hamper her investigations. She soon realises that this crime is just one part of a clandestine battle between two secret services - the Stasi of East Germany and Britain's MI6 - to control the truth behind one of the deadliest events of World War II.

The Stasi Game brilliantly fictionalises the true story of how Britain's wartime leaders justified the fire-bombing of the German city of Dresden, which many have since condemned as a war crime.

What a thriller!

Brilliant series and this one is the best-I can relate to this one as I live near Hull and visited Bad Schandau and Königstein last year. So hoping there will be another book. Please.

Decent plot spoiled

A gift of an idea over-written in a pedestrian and longwinded style. The ponderous, slow prissy narration grated and wore away any sympathy for the characters.

It was helpful in inducing sleep though.
