BOMC. Amazon.com description: Product Description: With Hitler finally defeated, Jake Geismar, former Berlin correspondent for CBS, has managed to wrangle one of the coveted press slots for the Potsdam Conference. His assignment: a series of articles on the American occupation of postwar Berlin. His personal agenda: to find Lena, the German mistress he left behind at the outbreak of the war. When he stumbles on a murderan American soldier washed up on the shore of the conference groundshe thinks he has found the key that will unlock his Berlin story. What he finds instead is a larger story of corruption and intrigue reaching deep into the heart of the occupation and a city not only physically but morally devastated, where children scavenge for food in the rubble, sex can be had for a cigarette, and the black market is the only means of survival. Berlin at zero hour is like nowhere elsea tragedy, and a feverish party after the end of the world. And nothing is simplenot the murder of a soldier and not any of the lives, American and German, that Jake encounters as he tries to solve it. More unsolvable still is the larger crime that hangs over everything in 1945, a crime so huge it seems beyond punishment. At once a murder mystery, a love story, and a riveting portrait of a unique time and place, The Good German is a historical thriller of the first rank

Review: Magnificent (Minette Walters)

Kanon writes for grown-ups, not for day-dreamers. That's why he is so good. (Allan Massie, THE SCOTSMAN)

Provocative, fully realised fiction that explores, as only fiction can, the reality of history as it is lived by individual men and women. (NEW YORK TIMES)

A story of wondrous humanity in the face of insane savagery (SPECTATOR)
