Berlin 1933: When the parties stop...the dying begins

The city that's been a beacon of liberation during the 1920s is about to become a city of deadly oppression. BBC foreign correspondent Simon Sampson risks his life in a bid to save thousands of gay men from the growing Nazi threat.

This is the second in the Simon Sampson Mysteries series. The first, A Death in Bloomsbury, was hailed as 'a good old-fashioned John Buchan-esque mystery reworked for the twenty-first century'.

Simon moves to Berlin where he meets British author Christopher Isherwood and his lover Heinz. He's also reunited with his banter-partner Florence Miles, better known to her friends as Bill. She's recruited him into the British intelligence services and he's got the task of hunting down communist spies.

But when Simon is ordered to spy on an old college friend, his loyalties are brought into question. Who are his real enemies? And how much can he trust his masters?

 

The Simon Sampson Mysteries start in London 1932 and continue through the 1930s across Europe.

Set against the rise of fascism in the continent, the series features a man who does his patriotic duty to fight the enemy, even though as a gay man he's an outlaw.
