More About The Man from Berlin by Luke Mccallin
 
 
 
Overview
Amidst the chaos of World War II...
In a land of brutality and bloodshed...
One death can still change everything.

In war-torn Yugoslavia, a beautiful young filmmaker and photographer--a veritable hero to her people--and a German officer have been brutally murdered.

Assigned to the case is military intelligence officer Captain Gregor Reinhardt. Already haunted by his wartime actions and the mistakes he's made off the battlefield, he soon finds that his investigation may be more than just a murder--and that the late Yugoslavian heroine may have been much more brilliant--and treacherous--than anyone knew.

Maneuvering his way through a minefield of political, military, and personal agendas and vendettas, Reinhardt knows that someone is leaving a trail of dead bodies to cover their tracks. But those bloody tracks may lead Reinhardt to a secret hidden within the ranks of the powerful that they will do anything to keep.

And his search for the truth may kill him before he ever finds it.

Set in 1943 Sarajevo, McCallin’s well-wrought debut, the first in a new series, highlights the complexities of trying to be an honest cop under a vicious, corrupt regime. The murders of Lt. Stefan Hendel, a German military intelligence officer, and Marija Vukic, a Croatian journalist, pose a considerable challenge for Capt. Gregor Reinhardt, an Abwehr counterintelligence officer partnered with a member of the Sarajevo police force. The killer or killers shot the lieutenant before savagely stabbing Vukic to death. Since the truth behind the murders could prove embarrassing to the Nazis, Reinhardt is under considerable pressure to find a scapegoat and close the case. Inevitably, he clashes with dangerous people, including a former colleague from his days in the Berlin Kripo. The ending sets up the sequel nicely, and if McCallin isn’t at the level of a Philip Kerr, his work will provide intelligent diversion for WWII crime fans. Agent: Peter Rubie, FinePrint Literary Management. (July)
