he Stasi and MI6 clash in this gripping Cold War crime thriller, from the award-winning author of Stasi Child.
A man’s body is found buried in concrete at a building site in the new town district. When People’s Police homicide captain Karin Müller arrives at the scene, she discovers that all of the body’s identifiable features have been removed – including its fingertips.
The deeper Müller digs, the more the Stasi begin to hamper her investigations. She soon realises that this crime is just one part of a clandestine battle between two secret services – the Stasi of East Germany and Britain’s MI6 – to control the truth behind one of the deadliest events of World War II.
The Stasi Game brilliantly fictionalises the true story of how Britain’s wartime leaders justified the fire-bombing of German city of Dresden, which many have since condemned as a war crime.
