The Last Man in Berlin

The Last Man in Berlin

A novel by

This page-turning thriller evocatively depicts a corrupt and desolate Berlin at that turning point in history when Hitler is on the cusp of taking power. It is the story of Detective Harry Wulff, a member of an elite police force, who is assigned to solve the murders of two transvestites whose deaths are connected to the Nazis' rise to power.

The Last Man in Berlin is peopled with unforgettable characters, including Wulff and his father, a revered Prussian officer who served during the Great War; Harry's lover, Johanna, a Jewish psychoanalyst filled with insight, passion and terror; a trooper in charge of Nazi hooligans determined to overthrow the Republic; and a maniacal killer who maintains chilling ties to those who will soon rule Germany.

As Wulff's search unfolds, he must enter the Berlin underworld of cross-dressing and prostitution, where he learns how these strange deaths are tied to the inner core of the Third Reich. In the end, Wulff and his father, the last good Germans, must ultimately stand fast against the terror of that time. The Last Man in Berlin is a novel so memorable that you will shake as you compulsively turn the pages.
