Product description

Review

"The Valley of Unknowing is simply superb: affecting but never melodramatic, literary but never less than thrilling." (Financial Times)

"A literary thriller, superbly anchored in place and time. Having lived in East Germany I am astonished by Sington’s pitch-perfect recreation of that society…this is a brilliant, evocative and accurate novel, a gripping hard-nosed authentic thriller." (Peter Millar The Times)

"A flawless, gripping and penetrating depiction of life in the former East Germany, wrapped up as a literary thriller...his feeling for not just time and place but atmosphere and way of life is perfect in a way no other Western writer, not even John Le Carre, has achieved" (The Oldie)

"Elegiac and bittersweet" (The Times)

Book Description

A compelling story set in the last days of East Germany from the author of The Einstein Girl
