Christiane  Neudecker - The God of the City


A brilliant novel about a play shrouded in mystery and a study of evil

At the beginning was Death. Somebody drowns trapped in the ice on the Wannsee in Berlin, a corpse is dangling from the ceiling of a theatre. The two deaths are decades apart, but the day of death is the same: January 16.

In 1912, poet Georg Heym drowned while skating, and in the mid-1990s undergraduate students at an elitist East Berlin school of acting were set the task of examining Heym's enigmatic Faust fragment. Then a body is found on the school's rehearsal stage. Was it murder, suicide or a pact with the devil?

For readers of Donna Tartt's The Secret History.

"Christiane Neudecker tightens the diabolical noose of obsession and power games until you breathlessly emerge from the last page. Brilliant!"
