For spy and thriller novels set in 1930’s and 1940’s Germany, it is hard to find a better series than those featuring John Russell, written by David Downing.
Named after each Berlin train station during the period, the stories have a backdrop of peace, war and the aftermath that enveloped the city. The evolution and destruction of Berlin is interwoven with fast-paced plots and interesting recurring characters. Really enjoyable reads.
I read all six in succession and I am still disappointed that the series ended.
