THE LONG-AWAITED PREQUEL TO THE BESTSELLINGBERLIN STATIONSERIES
Berlin, February 1933. John Russell watches the Reichstag burn, but it’s no scoop, even for a crime reporter. Four weeks after Hitler’s accession, brownshirt mobs stalk the streets and the press prints what the Party tells it. Russell, a former communist with a British passport, should be packing his bags, but while family ties bind him. Meanwhile, his assignments draw him closer to the savage heart of the new regime — and the story that only ends one way.
