AS THOUGHT-PROVOKING AS GEORGE
ORWELL, AS THRILLING
AS JOHN LE CARRÉ
Introducing Christopher McIntosh’s gripping novel about a side of the Cold War that few people know about, involving the chain of homes known as the Lebensborn (Wellspring of Life), created by the Nazi SS for unwanted children of German soldiers and women of the occupied countries during World War II. The story is set in a Europe divided by the Cold War, in which the East German intelligence service, the Stasi, is using former Lebensborn inmates for its own sinister purposes. From the Orwellian world of East Berlin to the fetish clubs of Hamburg, and from the death traps of the East-West border to Denmark’s wind-blown Baltic islands, this is a many-layered tale of deception, betrayal, love and the search for one’s native roots. The story moves to a shattering climax, which only reaches its astonishing dénouement in the re-united Berlin of 1990.
