Product Description

Details

Berlin, 1931. A power struggle is taking place in Berlin's underworld. The American gangster Abraham Goldstein is in residence at the Hotel Excelsior. As a favour to the FBI, the police put him under surveillance with Detective Gereon Rath on the job. As Rath grows bored and takes on a private case for his seedy pal Johann Marlow, he soon finds himself in the middle of a Berlin street war. Meanwhile Rath's on-off girlfriend, Charly, lets a young woman she is interrogating escape, and soon her investigations cross Rath's from the other side. Berlin is a divided city where two worlds are about to collide: the world of the American gangster and the expanding world of Nazism.

Press Reviews

Splendid and chilling... This is as good as Philip Kerr's Bernie Gunther series.

‘Even better than the first two... a strong storyline, set against an increasing buildup in 1930s Berlin between Nazi and communist factions.'

‘Volker Kutscher's books following Detective Inspector Gereon Rath through Berlin are gripping thrillers set against a wonderfully evoked background of Germany in the dying days of the Weimar Republic.'

Tough, gritty and altogether superb, Goldstein is a worthy addition to the addictive Gereon Rath series.

Horrible history indeed, but this is a fascinating novel.

Wonderfully atmospheric.

Noir of exceptional quality… Truly entertaining and deliciously dark novel. Full marks to Sandstone Press for recognising the quality of the German original and getting the novels translated.
