detective story based in post WW2 Berlin

Great plot, well read, pity that the other books in the series not available. Normally I think where and when a book is set is not relevant, but this really works with a Berlin backdrop. Author has clearly done his research. Plot is excellent, reminds me a bit of Boris Akunin

Gregor Reinhardt't's adventures continue in Berlin

The adventures of Reinhardt was a new experience for me having never come across the character or author previously. The Ashes of Berlin is an enjoyable, engaging adventure full of twists and turns.  Gregor Reinhardt is an "old School" Crippo Officer who is asked to investigate the suspicious deaths of former pilots who were all connected by through their war-time service.  It been divided Berlin there is interest (or interference) from all four of city's governing powers who try and de-rail Reinhardt and his investigation.

This is an excellent audiobook which is skillfully narrated by John Lee. I only wish that earlier books in the series had been given the audio treatment as I feel they would have gone down well
