Berlin, 1964: the Eastern authorities send ex-con Bruno to the West to kidnap an escaped agent – a lucrative trade since the construction of Berlin Wall. But when Bruno instantly reports to the Western police, he gets trapped between the opposing forces. Long overlooked amid the popular cycle of bestseller adaptations of which it was a part, this "bizarre and merciless" gem (in Graf's words) is ripe for discovery. [15]
