It's 2008 in Eastern Germany and Alexander, a handsome young man, is being held captive by a sibling duo who take the law into their own hands. The misdirected act of revenge falls apart when the siblings realise they have captured an innocent party. Fighting rising panic, Alexander is at a loss to understand why he has been targeted. Is he perhaps the victim of a set-up? Or, does somebody know about his secret affair with his boss's wife? As the days pass, Alexander falls seriously ill in the cold and dismal cellar forcing the siblings to free him from this act of vengeance... As Alexander recovers in intensive care, his suspicion that he is deemed responsible for East Germany's Stasi crimes turns to certainty. He is instructed to visit the cellar alongside an officer in order to give evidence and though he recognises the cellar, he declares that he has never seen it before. Sensitive Alexander tries to bury the demons of his past and focuses on the political unrest in the German Democratic Republic. His refusal to accept the prohibition of the Russian Sputnik magazine and his activist demonstrations should have him imprisoned, but he escapes arrest when the GDR collapses. Adam, a Stasi on the quiet, code-named Eden, is Alexander's brother; when confronted with his dark past, he is not troubled by regrets. He has nothing but scorn... This page-turning novel is written from the perspective of a personal experience. Eva is able to connect with the characters as, she too, has experienced the suppressive GDR system. After Eden will be suitable for readers of historical fiction and those interested in crime and politics.
