London, 1956. A young woman has been found dead in a hotel in King's Cross. It looks like an accident, and Scotland Yard isn't interested in accidents. But Fleet Street journalist Gerry Blackstone reckons there's more to it than meets the eye. Meanwhile, Oxford is filling with Hungarian emigres fleeing the failed revolution. Special Branch, concerned there could be Soviet spies among the genuine refugees, send in DCI Jack McGovern to keep an eye on proceedings. As McGovern plays spycatcher in Oxford and Blackstone hunts for clues in the seedy corners of London, a complex web of rogues, schemers and potential suspects starts to emerge: the well-to-do madam, the Classics professor, the East London crime boss, the government minister ... does it all lead back to the dead girl in King's Cross? Or is there something even more sinister going on?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Combines glittering, dark-hued prose with levels of penetrating psychological insight the equal of her great predecessors in the field. Wilson's upwards trajectory continues * Financial Times *
A sinister noir thriller [...] with a brilliant cast of characters ... atmospheric and addictively entertaining * Irish Sunday Independent *
Vividly evoking the seedy side of London against the background of the Cold War ... a mystery that's nothing like as traditional as it first appears * Sunday Times *
What marks Wilson out is the inner lives of her protagonists ... Detective Sergeant Jarrell is a hero for the future * Daily Telegraph *
Praise for The Girl in Berlin: 'A carefully plotted novel in which class, hypocrisy, moral corruption, treachery and taboos ancient and modern are cunningly interwoven ... a thoughtful, clever read with a twist at the end that makes you want to turn back the pages to wonder how you missed the clues * The Times *
A fascinatingly detailed examination of vulnerable, all-too-human characters * Independent *
