The Man from Berlin

Book 1, A Gregor Reinhardt Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Amidst the chaos of World War II…
In a land of brutality and bloodshed…
One death can still change everything.
In war-torn Yugoslavia, a beautiful young filmmaker and photographer—a veritable hero to her people—and a German officer have been brutally murdered.
Assigned to the case is military intelligence officer Captain Gregor Reinhardt. Already haunted by his wartime actions and the mistakes he’s made off the battlefield, he soon finds that his investigation may be more than just a murder—and that the late Yugoslavian heroine may have been much more brilliant—and treacherous—than anyone knew.
Maneuvering his way through a minefield of political, military, and personal agendas and vendettas, Reinhardt knows that someone is leaving a trail of dead bodies to cover their tracks. But those bloody tracks may lead Reinhardt to a secret hidden within the ranks of the powerful that they will do anything to keep.
And his search for the truth may kill him before he ever finds it.

From Publishers Weekly

May 27, 2013 – Set in 1943 Sarajevo, McCallin s well-wrought debut, the first in a new series, highlights the complexities of trying to be an honest cop under a vicious, corrupt regime. The murders of Lt. Stefan Hendel, a German military intelligence officer, and Marija Vukic, a Croatian journalist, pose a considerable challenge for Capt. Gregor Reinhardt, an Abwehr counterintelligence officer partnered with a member of the Sarajevo police force. The killer or killers shot the lieutenant before savagely stabbing Vukic to death. Since the truth behind the murders could prove embarrassing to the Nazis, Reinhardt is under considerable pressure to find a scapegoat and close the case. Inevitably, he clashes with dangerous people, including a former colleague from his days in the Berlin Kripo. The ending sets up the sequel nicely, and if McCallin isn t at the level of a Philip Kerr, his work will provide intelligent diversion for WWII crime fans.

Customer Reviews

A complex and compelling historical mystery

Part thriller and part murder case, this well written story takes place in German occupied Yugoslavia during WW II.
It offers a setting and time period not often explored in the genre, and a heroic, though flawed main character.
Very high quality all around.

A great unconventional thriller

A very well written novel, full of intrigue. Credible characters in the context of demoralized German army and population. Full of historical fact and context of a terrible time for Europe and the world

The Man From Berlin

Very entertaining. It takes place in an area that hasn't had much coverage for WWII. Worth the read.
