Overview

Featuring Hauptkommissar M]ller and his sidekick, Pappenheim M]ller is hot on the trail of the puppet-masters behind the assassination of his parents, and struggling to cope with the consequences of the knowledge he has uncovered. Meanwhile, he also has to deal with the kidnapping of a US colonel's family . . . and with the fact that the colonel has resigned his commission to take the law into his own hands and hunt down the kidnappers like an avenging angel. But still darker facts are to come to light, and the realization that there is in fact a hidden connection between the kidnapping and the death of his parents all those years ago.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
British thriller writer Savarin (A Cold Rain in Berlin) seems intent on keeping the spirit of Len Deighton and Elleston Trevor alive, as evidenced in the fifth installment in this highly readable series about present-day Berlin policeman Muller, a wealthy man who wears an earring and a ponytail and drives a Porsche, and his burly, working-class assistant, Pappenheim, who smokes too much and delights in needling his superior, known to everyone in the office as the "Great White." This outing is steeped in post-Bond tradecraft, including the nonregulation Beretta 92R that Muller carries in his shoulder holster and uses frequently. As one character points out, the men who seem to be hunting Muller have an unusually high death rate: "you've managed to kill off all those they have sent openly, and not so openly.... Those you don't kill, they do." Muller's longtime quest for the people who murdered his parents comes to a head, and he and Pappenheim, along with lovely U.S. Army Lt. Col. Carey Bloomfield, also get involved in investigating the kidnapping of the family of another American army officer. Savarin certainly knows how to keep genre storytelling surprisingly fresh.
