Occupied Berlin is a city of devastation, a place where a desperate man can assume a new identity. It is not difficult for SS Surgeon Gerhardt Schwarzenbach to become Dr Gerhardt Lutzke, his deeds in the Nazi concentration camp of Chelmno safely buried.
Then one day he finds himself staring into a face from his past: the Jew Leonhard Grunwald.
Thus begins a terrifying chase, a game of cat and mouse between Schwarzenbach, who must kill to protect himself, and Grunwald, who is haunted by secrets of his own …
“While touching on suspense with a skill to please hard core thriller addicts, he manages to please people who hate thrillers, yet warm to readable novels of substance”
“Armstrong is a gripping stylist”
“ … a wonderfully atmospheric writer who shines a light into the dark corners of the human heart”
