Sarah Broadhurst's view...

An unusual read from this American thriller writer who has chosen to set her latest in 1920âs Munich during Hitlerâs 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.

Comparison: Jeffery Deaver, Stuart M Kaminsky.
Similar this month: None but try Martyn Waites and Tess Gerritsen.

Synopsis

Straight into Darkness by Faye Kellerman

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.
