Product Description How do you solve a murder when you can't ask any questions? The gripping new thriller from the bestselling, award-winning author of Stasi Child. East Germany, 1975. Karin Müller, sidelined from the murder squad in Berlin, jumps at the chance to be sent south to Halle-Neustadt, where a pair of infant twins have gone missing. But Müller soon finds her problems have followed her. Halle-Neustadt is a new town - the pride of the communist state - and she and her team are forbidden by the Stasi from publicising the disappearances, lest they tarnish the town's flawless image. Meanwhile, in the eerily nameless streets and tower blocks, a child snatcher lurks, and the clock is ticking to rescue the twins alive . . . 'This fast-paced thriller hooks the readers from the start' The Sun 'A masterful evocation of the claustrophobic atmosphere of communist era East Germany . . . an intricate, absorbing page-turner' Daily Express 'The perfect blend of action, suspense and excitement. This is top notch crime! I will be shouting about this book to everyone, everywhere. Northern Crime 'One of the most fascinating and original detectives in contemporary crime fiction . . . a hugely accomplished novel' (For Winter Nights) 'For me David Young has cemented his place on the bookshelf alongside my Cold War thrillers by John le Carré and Len Deighton' The Quiet Knitter Review 'Willkommen back to Oberleutnant Karin Müller, who debuted last year in the acclaimed Stasi Child. She's landed another complicated case, made even more tricky by the fact that we're in East Germany in 1975, and second-guessing the dreaded Stasi is a matter of life and death, even for the police. Against the grim background of a socialist-paradise new town - which makes Milton Keynes look like St Mary Mead - Müller is on the trail of a child-kidnapper.' -- Karen Robinson ?The Sunday Times Crime ClubI think this is a genuinely beautiful cover, which works well alongside the first in the series. The way the background becomes impossible to see in the distance is completely appropriate in a world where political machinations continually obscure the truth, and the icy coldness of the whole scene reminds me of the brutality at the heart of the East German regime. Perfect ?Buried under Books'A cracking little read...Young is a master at evoking a sense of place and time...He also captures something of the vague sense of menace that surrounded socialist Germany in the 1970s, when the book is set...His writing is fantastic and his story lines hook you in and keep you entertained.' ?Social Bookshelves'The perfect blend of action, suspense and excitement. The era is captured magnificently. Young is a superb storyteller, weaving in more of the backstory of Karin Muller with a highly emotive story. This is top notch crime! I will be shouting about this book to everyone, everywhere.' ?Northern Crime'one of the most fascinating and original detectives in contemporary crime fiction. Incredible as it seems, Stasi Wolf is even better, taking us back into the dangerous, chilly setting of the DDR, where spies hide among neighbours and Stasi eyes keep watch. Stasi Wolf is a hugely accomplished novel, scoring high as both historical fiction and crime fiction. I love both genres and so I couldn't have been more entertained by it. This is a series with legs and we're very lucky to have it.' ?For Winter Nights'we are treated to a series of inspired twists and turns including the surprising secret of Muller's origins...masterful evocation of the claustrophobic atmosphere of communist era East Germany...intricate, absorbing page turner.' ?The Daily Express'Historically accurate, this fast-paced thriller hooks the readers from the start.' ?The Sun'history, politics, crime, thrills- all here in this budding series' ?Sport Newspaper'David Young has the ability to transport his reader to the setting of his books and allow them to explore the vastnes
