Berlin 1922. Arnold Wegner is an artist who depicts the era he lives in as one of stark contrasts – poverty and luxury, war and extravagance, sickness and insanity. His radical paintings are a provocative analysis of society and recent history, arousing admiration and revulsion in equal measure. When the artist is found dead in his studio, Detective Superintendent Leo Wechsler takes over the investigation and discovers that there was an eye-witness – but he is determined to avoid being questioned by the police at all costs.
Press acclaim for Susanne Goga’s books about Leo Wechsler:
With Leo Berlin, Susanne Goga brings us a first rate historical thriller. Gripping, authentic and beautifully written, this is historical crime fiction of the highest order.
- Rebecca Gablé on Leo Berlin
A spell-binding page-turner in a 1920s setting that was far less golden than we like to imagine.
