Then We Take Berlin (Joe Wilderness series)
A gripping, meticulously researched and richly detailed historical thriller moving from London during the Blitz, to divided post-war Berlin.
John Holderness, known to most as 'Wilderness', comes of age during World War II in Stepney, breaking in to houses with his grandfather.
After the war, Wilderness is recruited as MI5's resident 'cat burglar' and finds himself in Berlin, involved with schemes in the booming black market that put both him and his relationships in danger.
In 1963 it is a most unusual and lucrative request that persuades Wilderness to return - to smuggle someone under the Berlin Wall and out of East Germany. But this final scheme may prove to be one challenge too far...
Lawton's up there with Philip Kerr and Alan Furst. Yes, he's that good. * The Sun * While Lawton's previous novels were distinguished by their precise and elegant prose, Then We Take Berlin offers, courtesy of its Cockney protagonist, a cruder but equally effective vernacular style underpinned by mordant black humour. * Irish Times * Lawton builds a wonderfully convincing picture...writing with remarkable authority... as usual with Lawton's books, it's rather more than the sum of its parts. * Spectator * A stylish spy thriller. * The New York Times Book Review * A candidate for the most entertaining historical novel of the year... fantastically engaging. * USA Today * John Lawton finds himself in the same boat as the late Patrick O'Brian - a sublimely elegant historical novelist as addictive as crack but overlooked by too many readers for too long. * Daily Telegraph on A Lily of the Field * John Lawton's books contain such a wealth of period detail, character description and background information that they are lifted out of any category. Every word is enriched by the author's sophistication and irreverent intelligence, by his meticulous research and his wit. * Literary Review on A Lily of the Field * Never mind the comparisons-Lawton can stand up on his own, and Then We Take Berlin is a gem. * Seattle Times *
*An electronic version of a printed book that can be read on a computer or handheld device designed specifically for this purpose.
