An unusual read from this American thriller writer who has chosen to set her latest in 1920’s Munich during Hitler’s rise to power.  Based on fact, it paints a picture of the horror of those years and the corruption in the police force.  A disturbing book.

Straight into Darkness Synopsis

In 1920s Munich, homicide detective Axel Berg is called to the scene of a grisly homicide, the victim being a young society wife. Soon, a second body is uncovered; the discovery of a third indicates that Berg is dealing with an unimaginably evil killer. In the Germany of the time, the investigation cannot be straightforward. Hitler's power is growing, and the Nazis are a strong civic force in the city of Munich. Berg has always considered himself apolitical and as an outsider living a routine life, and he's been of no interest to those with power. But this high-profile case changes all that, as senior officers work to their own agendas. Berg is alone as never before, with the imminent threat at all times of making a mistake with deadly consequences.
