A gripping thriller with a dark secret at its heart.
Pools of blood, scenes of carnage, signs of agonising death - who deals with the aftermath of violence once the bodies have been taken away? Judith Kepler has seen it all. She is a crime-scene specialist. She turns crime scenes back into habitable spaces. She is a cleaner. It is at the home of a woman who has been brutally murdered that she is suddenly confronted with her own past. The murder victim knew Judith's secret: as a child Judith was sent to an orphanage under mysterious circumstances - parentage unknown. And the East German secret police were always there, in the background...When Judith begins to ask questions, she becomes the target of some powerful enemies. Nothing will ever be the same again.

A wonderful Wife & Mother, trying to find time for myself. Love to loose myself in the moment, listening to a fantastic audio book.
Wow, what a fascinating story. I was soo captivated and engrossed with this story I would double back on chapters just to make sure I was hearing the storyline correctly. A captivating story that left you on the edge of your seat. A story about an innocent girl with a troubled past, who finds out her life is not as she knows it to be, and the journey she embarks to find out who, how, why & where it all went wrong..... I loved this story and could easily listen to it again!!
Excellent narration. I enjoyed the story through & through. Well written with a few surprises along the way.
"Speaks to an era and political standpoint I am not interested in. The preci did not reflect the complexities"
I did not realise that the book was Cold War oriented and did not enjoy the complex political agenda. Hi
