Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“As pacey as any modern thriller but with a touch of the Edwardian adventure yarn…Midnight in Berlin is a vivid portrait of an entire city in turmoil, seething with intrigue and danger.” Times (London)
“A well-informed, smoothly crafted, fast-paced novel based closely on events in Berlin during the crucial months of 1938-39 and the European politics leading inevitably to war…A recommended read.” Portland Book Review
“Although MacManus clearly did tremendous research to set the novel’s scene, his storytelling gifts are as strong as his historical insights.” Connecticut Post
“A fascinating novel…Intriguing and highly recommended.” Country Life
“MacManus sets the ‘dark soul’ of Nazi Berlin as his backdrop…Detailed yet quick-moving.” Kirkus Reviews
“From the opening lines, Matthew Brenher’s pleasantly husky voice and crisp British accent capture both the atmosphere and characters of this richly detailed chronicle…He provides the perfect measured tone for British Colonel Noel Macrae…[His] mastery of tempo and intensity shines as the action alternates between Berlin and London…The result is a satisfying audiobook with broad audience appeal.” AudioFile
