Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Nightfall Berlin by Jack Grimwood, read by Daniel Weyman.

In 1986, news that East-West nuclear-arms negotiations are taking place lead many to believe the Cold War may finally be thawing.


For British intelligence officer Major Tom Fox, however, it is business as usual.

Ordered to arrange the smooth repatriation of a defector, Fox is smuggled into East Berlin. But it soon becomes clear that there is more to this than an old man wishing to return home to die - a fact cruelly confirmed when Fox's mission is fatally compromised.

Trapped in East Berlin, hunted by an army of Stasi agents and wanted for murder by those on both sides of the Wall, Fox must somehow elude capture and get out alive.

But to do so he must discover who sabotaged his mission and why...

Jack Grimwood, a.k.a. Jon Courtenay Grimwood, was born in Malta and christened in the upturned bell of a ship. He grew up in the Far East, Britain and Scandinavia. Apart from novels, he writes for national newspapers including The Times, Telegraph, Independent and Guardian. Jon is two-time winner of the BSFA Award for Best Novel, with Felaheen and then End of the World Blues. His literary novel, The Last Banquet, published under the name Jonathan Grimwood, was shortlisted for Le Prix Montesquieu 2015. His work has been translated into fifteen languages. He is married to the journalist and novelist Sam Baker. Nightfall Berlin is his second thriller.

Even better than Child 44 . . . A blizzard of exciting set pieces, superbly realized Grimwood is a damned fine writer The writing is elegant, the dialogue razor sharp, the characters drawn economically but effectively, and the action is unrelenting Conjures up the city so vividly that you can almost touch the place An extraordinarily atmospheric and immersive read ... escapism at its best The rejuvenation of the espionage thriller continues apace with Nightfall Berlin The thriller of the summer ... Grimwood raises the stakes in this dark, twisty tale of Cold War conflict The superior spy thriller of the year. Le Carré fans will be delighted Mesmerising, surefooted, vividly realised . . . something special in the arena of international thrillers A compulsive and supremely intelligent thriller from a master stylist A fine book this, for those who enjoy vintage Le Carre Moskva was one of the most impressive spy thrillers of 2016 . . . Nightfall Berlin is even better. Grimwood's portrayal of dark and frightening East Berlin is excellent and he is skilful at describing the politics of espionage A gripping Cold War tale that manages to be original as well as give a nod to classic John Le Carre The atmosphere and tension perfectly pitched this excellent Cold War thriller with memorable well-drawn characters is compulsive reading A twisty tale of Cold War conflict, which sees tormented intelligence officer Tom Fox caught up in a dark story of establishment lies and long-buried secrets A book that pulls you in, teaches you something and gives you a protagonist you can't get enough of ... If you liked Ian McEwan's The Innocent, you'll love this evocation of Berlin at the other end of the Cold War The new Le Carre . . . an absolutely brilliant page turner . . . if you love thrillers, Jack Grimwood is a name you need to remember Nightfall Berlin is just fabulous. So atmospheric, so elegantly written. The character, Major Tom Fox is intriguing... like Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch, or like early le Carre. I really recommend it. I just disappeared into it totally. A gripping Cold War thriller where life hangs by a thread. Dark secrets from the lawless rubble of WW2 threaten world peace and the family of British spy Tom Fox. After the success of Moskva, Grimwood works his magic on the grey but edgy streets of East Berlin. A powerful, addictive, twisty tale where no-one can be trusted. Spring's best thriller Note-perfect ... Jack Grimwood is about to become your new favourite thriller writer If you love thrillers Jack Grimwood is the name you need to remember... Expand reviews
