One frozen night in Germany, Tracy Barnes witnesses the killing of her lover by the secret police. Years later, when the Wall has crumbled and old enemies are new friends, Tracy encounters the murderer and plans to make him pay. But in a country still at war with itself, Tracy finds that she is being played as a pawn in a far bigger game of revenge that reaches all the way to Moscow. Crackling with suspense and finely realized characters, Dead Ground floodlights a chilling East Germany at the end of the Cold War, exposing some uncomfortable truths behind one of recent history's most important political transitions. This is spy fiction at its best: a mission of revenge, a haunting love story, and a chilling tale.

Professional reviews

"Robert Whitfield superbly performs this exciting spy novel whose action takes place in post-Cold War Europe. The plot centers around a woman's expedition to destroy an ex-East German secret police official who years ago murdered her lover, a young agent. But on an even more interesting level, the book portrays the struggle of Joshua Mantel, the woman's aging and seedy partner in her mission, to overcome his self-loathing over a past "compromise" of his own in the amoral world of espionage. Whitfield's subtle shadings of tone, cadence, and inflection artistically reveal the rich subtleties that Gerald Seymour has woven into this fine book. K.C. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
