GOOD GERMAN, THE by Joseph Kanon - SIGNED BOOK - ADVANCE READING COPY

See all titles by Joseph Kanon.

Henry Holt: NY 2001 Advance reading copy, new in pictorial wraps, signed by author.

Set in Berlin in 1945, a brilliant thriller about the end of one war and the beginning of another, by the bestselling author of Los Alamos. 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 murder an American soldier washed up on the shore of the conference grounds he 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 else a tragedy, and a feverish party after the end of the world. And nothing is simple-not 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.
