An usual crime story set during the final months of WW2 in Dresden during the terrible allied air raids, including the infamous fire storms and subsequently during the Russian occupation. Inspector Max Heller is determined to catch a brutal killer and prepared to risk the air raids and working with the Russians to achieve his aim. Provides an interesting insight into what life was like during that period, with the Russian occupation forces drawn surprisingly sympathetically overall. ( )

This was an excellent story, finely translated, keeping you guessing till the end. I thought I had the mystery figured out. I didn’t. One of the finest things about the story was describing the continual difficulty with which the detective had to deal with investigating a crime during wartime, and then during occupation. I was dismissive of this Amazon prime book when I picked it as just another WWII book. I was so wrong. 4/5 ⭐️s ( )

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

As World War II ends, a killer?s game begins. In the final days of the Nazi regime, with the historic city of Dresden on the brink of destruction, terrifying rumors spread about the Fright Man, a demonic killer who exploited the cover of a nighttime air raid siren to mutilate and kill a young nurse. Just as seasoned detective Max Heller begins investigating, the Fright Man kills again? The investigation seems hopeless. Desperate refugees flood the streets, all of Heller?s resources are depleted, and his new boss is a ruthless SS officer. And like so many others, Heller and his wife, Karin, survive on meager rations while fearing for the lives of their sons at the front. But as tensions mount and enemy firebombs decimate the city, dangerous new clues come to light?and the determined Heller pursues a violent and twisting path to unmask a monster. -- from Amazon.com… (more)
