You can read my review of Stettin Station by David Downing at Euro Crime.

I seem to be reading a large number of Second World War era books lately, but then there are a lot being written. Stettin Station is a fine addition to the wartime spy genre with its frightening evocation of life in Nazi Berlin, and the reminder that not all Germans supported that brutal regime.
  1. >Thanks for this review, Norman. It sounds as though Downing has done an excellent job of weaving real historical events into this thriller, and I always find that fascinating. World War II was such a cataclysmic event that it's not surprising there's a lot of fiction out there with that war as a backdrop.

  2. >You are right on that Margot, but the danger is that with so many books truth and fiction get mixed up. Unfortunately the truth was a lot worse than many fiction authors portray, although not David Downing and Philip Kerr.
