Known for his immersive and playful historical fiction, British author Anthony Quinn was born in Liverpool and was the film critic for the Independent from 1998 to 2013. His first novel, The Rescue Man, won the 2009 Authors’ Club Best First Novel Award and his novel Curtain Call was chosen for the Waterstones Book Club. His other novels are Half of the Human Race, The Streets, Freya, Eureka and Our Friends in Berlin.
The city is in blackout, besieged by nightly air raids from Germany. Two strangers are about to meet. Between them they may alter the course of the war. Breathtakingly tense and trip-wired with surprises, Our Friends in Berlin is inspired by true events. It is a story about deception and loyalty - and about people in love who watch each other as closely as spies.
