"Luke McCallin, author of The Pale House and The Man from Berlin, delivers a dark, compelling thriller set in post-World War II Germany featuring ex-intelligence officer Captain Gregor Reinhardt. A year after Germany's defeat, Reinhardt has been hired back onto Berlin's civilian police force. The city is divided among the victorious allied powers, but tensions are growing, and the police are riven by internal rivalries as factions within it jockey for power and influence with Berlin's new masters. When a man is found slain in a broken-down tenement, Reinhardt embarks on a gruesome investigation. It seems a serial killer is on the loose, and matters only escalate when it's discovered that one of the victims was the brother of a Nazi scientist. Reinhardt's search for the truth takes him across the divided city and soon embroils him in a plot involving the Western Allies and the Soviets. And as he comes under the scrutiny of a group of Germans who want to continue the war--and faces an unwanted reminder from his own past--Reinhardt realizes that this investigation could cost him everything as he pursues a killer who believes that all wrongs must be avenged"--

This is the third Gregor Reinhardt novel and it's a corker! It's a year after the end of WWII and Reinhardt is back in Kripo, investigating murders. The plot is intricate and involved. But the real star of this story is Berlin itself. McKinty truly makes the ruined city and its varied denizens come alive. I could smell the concrete dust, feel the tenuousness of the bombed out buildings. Well worth the read!
