APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The heroine of Mandy Robotham’s historical suspense novel has a front-row seat to evil in action. In 1938, London reporter Georgie Young is dispatched to Berlin to investigate the realities of the Third Reich from close up. Because we know all too well the horrors that she and her fellow journalist Max Spender are about to uncover, The Berlin Girl puts us on edge immediately, as we worry not only about the fate of the book’s two heroes but their Jewish colleagues also. The tension keeps rising as Georgie goes up against the German propaganda machine, gets way too close to a scary SS officer, and witnesses different people within her circle start to disappear. Robotham seriously did her homework on prewar Germany, zeroing in on tiny details like clothing and manners that anchor us solidly in this specific time and place. An immersive portrait of a woman standing strong in the face of terrifying danger, The Berlin Girl is a sensational wartime thriller.
