The writer paints a graphic and often horrifically vivid pictutre of Dresden during this part of the war. I must admit that I have probably never really considered what it must have been really like for people the world over and the suffering they endured and this book certainly gave me a different perspective. The hunt for a crazed killer amoungst all of the chaos is certainly no easy task, with no one to trust and his life under threat at every turn Max Heller faces the challenge of his life.
A gripping book, atmospheric and will transport you to another place in time x
The author creates a compelling narrative with numerous twists and turns, people who are hero and villain in the turn of a page.
You can see tha initial steps of the Gestapo morphing into the Stasi and the tyranical regimes resemblances.
The characters are sympathetic ,well rounded, and believeable , the story tight and fast paced, I am giving no spoilers.
I have allready ordered in advance the next book in the series.
Buy this book,it is worth the small cost.
The murders that form the other theme of the book ,act as a reminder of the atrocities that were committed under Nazi rule. So it is not a relaxing read but very worthwhile.
When the British and Allies bomb Dresden and almost completely flatten it,Max Heller continues to pursue the murderer.
The Russians take charge and are brutal. One young Russian officer helps Heller to find the murderer. Exciting conclusion.
