The story –or is it just the reality– begins in Berlin during the nineties. There is a man in a hotel room, with his head bent over some newspapers trying to decode a message. It might lead to his salvation the time that the Berlin Wall is being demolished into pieces. A journalist is looking at the remnants of a Wall and is thinking of the country that doesn’t exist anymore. East Germany. He finds himself wandering among the ex East-Germans feeling in the air their deep sense of uncertainty until he is found in front of the building of Stasi, one of the most effective and repressive intelligence agencies in the world.
A routine reportage turns into a nightmare. He doesn’t expect to discover so many skeletons in the closet: agents selling secrets, politicians taking bribes, publishers blackmailing and a Greek, beyond suspicion, who is one of the most important Stasi agent struggles not to be revealed. All that follows has nothing to do with James Bond’s films.
It is the rough reality which sweeps us away with no mercy… The readers will wonder if everything of these is real. They better search how many things they ignore!
A stirring spy thriller derived from recent history.
