David Young ´ 7 Review

Et they strongly discourage her from asking uestions The evidence doesn't add up and it soon becomes clear the crime scene has been staged But this regime does not tolerate curious minds and it takes Müller too long to realize that the trail she's been following may lead her dangerously close to hom. Excellent and unusually located police procedural set in the former East GermanyI can’t think of many English language detective novels set in the former East Germany and David Young has created a fascinating character in the damaged but tenacious Oberleutnant Karin Müller In most countries she’d be just a regular cop in charge of the murder team however this is communist ruled East Germany and she’s a card carrying party member believing in “real and existing socialism” Investigating a teenage girl's body at the foot of the Berlin wall Karin has to walk a political tightrope that adds an extra frisson to the story as she deals with her superiors and the Stasi the East German secret policeWhilst many police procedurals have conflict with superiors in East Germany conflict with superiors can mean at best dismissal then demotion to a menial job or at worst deathDavid Young’s research is impeccable with fantastic attention to detail from the procedures in the Stasi remand prisons to the uniueness of Volvo tyre tracks as well as capturing well the feel of 1970’s East GermanyIf you like police procedurals strong female characters along with an Orwellian landscape then read “Stasi Child”
