Major Tom Fox is despatched to East Berlin to bring home a traitor who defected to escape justice. There's more at stake than an old man wanting to return home. Powerful forces on both sides of the Iron Curtain stand to lose if the defector is given his day in court. Fox soon finds in the upside-down world of Cold War Berlin he's operating alone in the enemy's backyard, unsure of who he can trust.
In 1986, news that East-West nuclear-arms negotiations are taking place lead many to believe the Cold War may finally be thawing.
For British intelligence officer Major Tom Fox, however, it is business as usual.
Ordered to arrange the smooth repatriation of a defector, Fox is smuggled into East Berlin. But it soon becomes clear that there is more to this than an old man wishing to return home to die - a fact cruelly confirmed when Fox's mission is fatally compromised.
Trapped in East Berlin, hunted by an army of Stasi agents and wanted for murder by those on both sides of the Wall, Fox must somehow elude capture and get out alive.
But to do so he must discover who sabotaged his mission and why...
Nightfall Berlin is a tense, atmospheric and breathtaking thriller that drops you deep into the icy heard of the Cold War.
