The Man from Berlin (Gregor Reinhardt) MP3 CD – Unabridged, 28 May 2014
Enhance your purchase
Assigned to the case is military intelligence officer Captain Gregor Reinhardt. Already haunted by his wartime actions and the mistakes he's made off the battlefield, he soon finds that his investigation may be more than just a murder, and that the late Yugoslavian heroine may have been much more brilliant-and treacherous-than anyone knew.
Maneuvering his way through a minefield of political, military, and personal agendas and vendettas, Reinhardt knows that someone is leaving a trail of dead bodies to cover their tracks. But those bloody tracks may lead Reinhardt to a secret hidden within the ranks of the powerful that they will do anything to keep.
And his search for the truth may kill him before he ever finds it.

Reinhardt is pushed to his limits with this and I lost quite a bit of good sleeping time enjoying this novel

As far as the crime element of this novel is concerned, it involves the murder of a German officer, and Abwehr lieutenant, Stefan Handel, and a beautiful film maker and socialite, Marija Vukic. Reinhardt is told to work with a local investigator from the Sarajevo police, Andro Padelin. As well as this encumbrance, he also has to deal with Major Becker of the Military Police, which whom he shares a difficult history. His attempts to discover the truth about the murder ruffles more than a few feathers and Reinhardt has to tread carefully between his superior officers, the local police – who are extremely ruthless and seem keen to pin the murders on anyone they can beat into a confession - and the Partisans.
I did feel at times that the story was a little slow. Obviously, this is very much a literary mystery and I am always happy with historical detail. However, there is also a fine line between exploring themes and moving the action along and, at times, this stalled just a little. Still, it was an interesting novel, I liked the character of Reinhardt and I would certainly read on in this series as I would like to know more about him. I thought the author did an excellent job of exploring a lesser explored location and Sarajevo really came alive in this book. The ending also offered various possibilities for the series to continue and I will certainly look forward to continuing reading more.
My only slight criticism is that it was maybe fifty pages to long.
I enjoyed it enough that I will be buying the next one.
Not in the Bernie Gunther class just yet, different rather than comparable.
Second, the good. I lived in Sarajevo and I thought the authenticity was magnificent. It took me back to a time and a mentality that is so hard to recapture. That's why I gave it five stars. It's also very well plotted and the characters are very engaging.
So, 5 stars but I hesitate to get the next in the series because the editor wasn't more ruthless.
