It’s 1938. Europe teeters on the brink of war. Irish-American Maggie O’Dea is young, beautiful and bright. And she hates the English. When her German boyfriend helps her land a job in Berlin, Maggie enthusiastically jumps into her duties. A second generation American, she despises the British for driving her father out of his native Ireland. She’s only too happy to assist Hitler’s Propaganda Ministry in its nightly broadcasts intended to influence British opinion. Before long Maggie is assisting Broadcasting Division’s most popular English commentator and drawing the attention of Joseph Goebbels, the propaganda minister himself. Erich Greinke is another American in Berlin. His clandestine mission is to build an intelligence network in the German capital, but it’s in his cover as the American embassy’s passport control officer that he first encounters Maggie. Erich is determined to recruit Maggie as one of his sources, but his clumsy overtures offend her. Only when Erich uncovers a ghastly Nazi secret, can he finally convince Maggie she’s working for the wrong side—and that she’s become a victim of the very propaganda she’s helped create. Caught between her conscience and the Gestapo’s tightening noose, Maggie must make extraordinary choices as she navigates between love and loyalty, survival and discovery. Berlin Calling follows Maggie inside the Propaganda Ministry as she learns the startling power of the first mass medium, radio, and walks a deadly tight-rope between her public work for the Germans and her secret work for Erich.
