Review: The Good Cop by Peter Steiner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In a world of growing nationalism, a quiet few are determined to resist. This gripping historical mystery explores the darkest days of the early 20th century.

Munich, 1920. Detective Willi Geismeier has a problem: how do you uphold the law when the law goes bad? The First World War has been lost and Germany is in turmoil. The new government in Berlin is weak. The police and courts are corrupt. Fascists and Communists are fighting in the streets. People want a savior, someone who can make Germany great again. To many, Adolf Hitler seems perfect for the job. When the offices of a Munich newspaper are bombed, Willi Geismeier investigates, but as it gets political, he is taken off the case. Willi continues to ask questions, but when his pursuit of the truth itself becomes a crime, his career - and his life - are in grave danger.

My Review:

I have to admit, by just reading the blurb for The Good Cop, I was not sure if it would be a read for me or not. However, by chapter two, I was hooked. I was intrigued from start to finish and had the whole book read in just a couple of hours. Hours well spent.

I am giving The Good Cop five stars. I highly recommend it for all readers who enjoy historical fiction set in post World War I and events that lead up to World War II Germany.

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
