Summary

World War II is over, and former German intelligence officer Captain Gregor Reinhardt has returned to Berlin, having been hired back onto Berlin's police force. When a man is found slain, Reinhardt embarks on a gruesome investigation. It seems a serial killer is on the loose, and matters only escalate when it's discovered that one of the victims was the brother of a Nazi scientist. Reinhardt realises that this investigation could cost him everything as he pursues a killer who believes that all wrongs must be avenged.

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

Riveting listening. Wanted to hear it from start to finish. Narrator was very lively and engaging.
