Berlin, a Novel, Paperback Book



This work talks about occupied Berlin, 1945, American Sector.

Young Ben inadvertently uncovers the body of a beautiful young woman trapped under a subway station: she has been sexually abused and strangled with a chain.

In the scramble to identify the body, the victim is mistaken for an American and a local investigation becomes a matter for the US Military police.

In this devastated city the US detective on the case, John Ashburner, and the local German policeman, Klaus Dietrich realise quickly that to solve this apparently motiveless murder they will have to work together.

When the bodies of other young women are discovered it becomes clear that this is no isolated act of violence.

Daring, atmospheric and taut, Pierre Frei has fashioned a gripping whodunit from the wreckage of Berlin.

There is a powerful pulse buried deep in the rubble.
