Description

IN EAST GERMANY, SOLVING A MURDER CAN GET YOU KILLED . . . A gripping and intelligent thriller set in East Germany, during the worst winter in one-hundred years. Perfect for fans of Tom Rob Smith, Phillip Kerr and Joseph Kanon.____________________________________ In 1978 East Germany, nothing is as it seems. The state’s power is absolute, history is re-written, and the ‘truth’ is whatever the Stasi say it is. So when a woman’s murder is officially labelled ‘accidental death’, Major Karin Müller of the People’s Police is faced with a dilemma. To solve the crime, she must disregard the official version of events. But defying the Stasi means putting her own life – and the lives of her young family – in danger. As the worst winter in living memory holds Germany in its freeze, Müller must untangle a web of state secrets and make a choice: between truth and lies, justice and injustice, and, ultimately, life and death. Stunningly authentic and brimming with moral ambiguity, Stasi Winter is the thrilling new novel from the award-winning author of Stasi Child.____________________________________ Praise for David Young: ‘Excellent’ The Times ‘Thrilling’ William Ryan ‘Masterful’ Daily Express ‘Fast-paced’ The Sun ‘Superb.
