4 stars out of 5

"Scarrow, turning away from his previous Roman adventures, has produced a gripping thriller"

The action in Blackout unfolds in Berlin around Christmas 1939 as police officer Horst Schenke searches for the killer of a glamorous former actress, wife of a senior Nazi. The apolitical Schenke, never a party member, finds himself under pressure as his investigation leads him ever further into the labyrinth of Hitler’s regime. Other novelists, most notably Philip Kerr, have written fiction featuring policemen struggling to maintain integrity amid the Third Reich’s evil.
