Berlin, 1947. The first stirrings of the Cold War begin as the liberating armies of the West and the Soviet Union lock horns over territory and resources amid the ashes of the Third Reich. Into this edgy world of ruined buildings and shattered lives arrives Mitchell Delaney, an American newspaper reporter with an agenda that has nothing to do with ideology. To reclaim the love he lost at the outbreak of war and find the truth behind a series of murders, he must negotiate the checkpoints and twitchy military presence of a city in the collective throes of paranoia – not to mention a sinister menace from the past that creeps ever closer. A taut, tense thriller from Gregory Lee, the bestselling author of The Nero Decree, Berlin: Day Zero is a very human tale of survival and resourcefulness in the shadow of a fast-closing Iron Curtain. It's also a chilling portrait of a seminal moment in time, the repercussions of which we still feel today.
