Publisher's 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.

I wish I could find more English translations

I love the Gereon Rath series, the interplay of murder mystery with history is compelling and makes for an enthralling listen/read

Gerion lost his ability to reason

Not sure why Gerion has lost his ability to think. To busy lying and cheating I suppose. Disappointed but thank god Charlie isn’t so stupid. Finding it hard to believe he is this stupid which of course is disappointing but otherwise excellent as usual. I didn’t enjoy this narration as much. They all sound Scottish not German and sometimes hard to tell what character is speaking but still a very good job. Love this series. Please keep writing more. Thank you.
