BERLIN - BOXHAGENER PLATZ

by Matti Geschonneck

synopsis

In 1968, Otti has already seen five husbands off to their maker and the sixth one is not long for this life when she receives advances from the old Nazi Fisch-Winkler and the former Spartacus fighter Karl Wegner. Otti falls in love with Karl and suddenly Fisch-Winkler is dead. Holger has the makings of an amateur sleuth and learns a lot about love, the 1968 revolts and how one can win women over with "revolutionary" secrets. This all goes well until Holger makes a mistake which puts Karl, of all people, in danger.
