Dare you deceive the Stasi?
When the West German, Werner Seiffert, crosses the Berlin Wall to ask for an agent by name, the Stasi want to know why.
Lieutenant Reim is haunted by the deaths of two of his colleagues, but has to leave his ghosts behind when he's ordered to trace Seiffert.
He follows the trail north to a seaside hotel populated by spies and winter holiday makers, but is the man Reim tracks down the one he was sent to find? And can the West German force the Stasi to re-open a case that Reim had hoped was closed forever?
