Stealing the Future: An East German Spy Story

By Max Hertzberg

Crime & mystery, Historical fiction | Paperback, eBook

What if the Berlin Wall had never fallen? 1993. After forty years of communist rule, it's time for change in the GDR. Direct democracy, citizen's movements and de-centralization are changing the political landscape. But when a politician's crushed body is found, a constitutional crisis erupts. Former dissident, Martin Grobe, is caught up in an investigation that points towards the KGB, the Stasi and the West Germans — but is it really the start of a putsch against the new GDR, or just a murder? Gritty, realistic but hopeful, “Stealing the Future” gives the traditional spy thriller a revolutionary twist.

Previously an academic researcher (evaluating Stasi and SED files on opposition movements and on security on the Berlin Wall). More recently a social change trainer and facilitator. Often to be found living in Berlin, Max is currently travelling around Eastern Europe and Germany doing research for further novels.
