Strange Skies over East Berlin

Rating: 3 out of 5.

East Berlin, the 1970s. A place so crowded with spies of all sorts that people wonder when was the last time they told the truth. It is the setting of this new supernatural thriller, which aims to make us pause and ponder on some important moral questions.

The main character is an American spy in East Berlin who had witnessed a strange sky and is investigating it, all the while he is hunted by repercussions of this job and other earlier jobs. It might seem strange to say, but the questions on truth, morality and duty were for me the strongest part of the book. The supernatural part was rather bland and a bit formulaic. The art was slightly depressing, which fitted the story well, and I liked that the setting was Berlin for a change.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
