About the Author

Steve Anderson was a Fulbright fellow in Munich, Germany. His research on the early US occupation in 1945 inspired him to write several novels centered on WWII and its aftermath. Anderson has an MA in history and has worked in advertising, public relations, and journalism. He lives with his wife, RenΓ©, in Portland, Oregon.


"There's enough action and mystery to keep the pages turning--traitors done in by a shashka, a Ukrainian sword; a dramatic face-off in Czechoslovakia's snowy Sumava Mountains--all spun out in a masterful story of redemption found within the brutalities of postwar realpolitik. Classic noir shadowed by the hulks and rubble of the once-proud city of Munich, a character itself in this haunting tale." -Kirkus Reviews

"A fascinating era, one of history's deep, dark pockets, observed with camera-like precision--captivating characters and dialogue worthy of Mad Men." -John Lawton, author of the Troy novels

"Bravo! This is a hard-hitting tale of international intrigue, forced repatriation, and the bittersweet meaning of kinship when all values--even the most elementary ones--appear to have been swallowed up by war." --Ben Pastor, author of Tin Sky, the latest novel in the Martin Bora series

"Steve Anderson deftly creates a world on the razor's edge of survival, where yesterday's allies are tomorrow's cruel enemy, with the innocent caught in between. A great read!" --James R. Benn, author of The White Ghost, a Billy Boyle WWII mystery

"This pulsing mystery-thriller set in postwar Germany captures time in a capsule." --J. Sydney Jones, author of the acclaimed Viennese Mystery series and the WWII thriller, Ruin Value

"An excellent atmospheric portrayal of post-war Germany and the complexities of growing international maneuvering during that period, all wrapped in an intriguing mystery. Kudos!" --Ron Lealos, author of Pashtun and Don't Mean Nuthin'
