"THE WAR HAD made him famous."

About the Book

One man, Jake, a reporter searches for answers to a seemingly random murder. People he knew from before the war move in and out of the story. The Americans and Russians are now in charge in Germany and it seems they may be responsible in the name of gaining German rocket scientists. Problem is the scientists may be Nazis, at least are Nazi sympathisers, and the husband of his former lover, Emil, one of the German scientists, is also missing. He finds his lover, Lena, and tries to keep her safe from her husband, the Russians and now the Americans. She is the trump card in the mystery, and Jake has her hidden in plain sight. It's a race to see who will win in this tale set immediately post-WWII in Berlin - now an obliterated city trying to rebuild.
