About the Book

Ganador del CWA Historical Dagger Award en 2016, el más prestigioso premio para novela policiaca histórica del ámbito anglosajón Libro del mes por la sección de novela negra del Times.

Cuando la detective Karin Müller es llamada para investigar la muerte de una adolescente al pie del Muro, al ver el cuerpo comprende que no se trata de una muerte más: la chica huía, sí, pero de la parte occidental.

Müller pertenece a la Policía del Pueblo, cuyos poderes están de facto limitados por la todopoderosa Stasi. Por un lado le piden que descubra la identidad de la chica, pero le aseguran que el caso está cerrado y la animan encarecidamente a que se abstenga de hacer ninguna pregunta

Las pruebas no cuadran, y Müller enseguida se da cuenta de que el escenario del crimen es un montaje. Pero las mentes curiosas no tienen buena prensa en regímenes como el de la República Democrática Alemana, y Müller no se da cuenta de que la pista que está siguiendo la llevará por un sendero lleno de peligros que afectarán a su vida personal…

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Outstanding... Fans of Martin Cruz Smith’s Arkady Renko will welcome Müller.” - Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Chilling.” - Daily Telegraph

“Extremely engaging.” - Sunday Express

“Can’t get enough cold-war Germany after Deutschland 83? This is your latest reading companion.” - Shortlist

“Deft, assured storytelling, a compelling new detective and a fascinating setting―I was up late to finish it!” - Gilly Macmillan, author of What She Knew

“One of the best reads I’ve had in ages. With its masterful intertwining of dual storylines and its stark portrayal of life behind the Berlin Wall, this is a cracking debut.” - David Jackson, bestselling author of Cry Baby

“Deep and dark, this debut is utterly gripping, sucking you in straight from the get go...a corker of an ending. Superb.” - Nikki Owen, author of The Spider in the Corner of the Room

“Young has recreated excellently the fear and paranoia that permeated East German society . . . I really liked this novel and strongly recommend it.” - The Crime Warp

“Young has more than proved that his name will be one to watch in the future with this powerful, well-researched and intriguing thriller. A highly recommended debut.” - Raven Crime Reads

“I was in awe whilst reading this novel. David Young manages to capture beautifully the sense of place... This is a terrific crime read; with its insight into a bygone era and a fascinating political slant.” - Northern Crime

“Gripping. The personal and criminal elements are both immediately engaging and well paced. The threads ultimately coalesce to form an astonishingly powerful depiction of life in a totalitarian state and the ending is stunning.” - Buried Under Books

“A promising debut, an astutely considered novel of detection and place, redolent of dread, paranoia and suspicion... Young demonstrates he has not only a fine heroine but a nice eye for action, claustrophobic detail and a lurking, just-under-control sense of the gothic.” - The Australian

“A self-confessed obsessive, Young’s period detail—what kind of tire tracks Stasi official’s cars left—is impressive.” - New Zealand Herald
