Publisher Description

Set in Berlin just after the end of World War II, Joseph Kanon's The Good German, now a major motion picture, is a brilliant thriller about the end of one war and the beginning of another, by the bestselling author of Los Alamos.

Berlin, 1945. Hitler has been defeated, and Berlin is divided into zones of occupation. Jake Geismar, an American correspondent who spent time in the city before the war, has returned to write about the Allied triumph while pursuing a more personal quest: his search for Lena, the married woman he left behind. When an American soldier's body is found in the Russian zone during the Potsdam Conference, Jake stumbles on the lead to a murder mystery.

Jason Kanon's The Good German is a story of espionage and love, an extraordinary recreation of a city devastated by war, and a thriller that asks the most profound ethical questions in its exploration of the nature of justice, and what we mean by good and evil in times of peace and of war.

Wow, great book

One of the best books I’ve read in awhile. Full of suspense.

Extraordinary insight into post war Berliners

When I think about the WWII, I think about the battles etc and the grand scheme of history. But this book makes you think about the people who lived that war, who barely survived and how they survived. Ordinary people, not monsters out to run the world, just trying to live ordinary lives in an unthinkable, unbearable environment. What would I have done in their place? What would you?
