The Matchmaker: A Spy in Berlin

We rated this book:


Anne Simpson’s world is about to be upended, and it starts with a visit from a stranger. Anne lives in Berlin with her husband, Stefan. Stefan is a piano tuner, his work frequently takes him out of town. The stranger is a Consular Officer named Cooper. He informs Anne that Stefan is missing. As Anne processes this, news coverage alludes to Stefan being dead, possibly murdered. A visit by the BND quickly devolves into an interrogation. In 1989 Berlin, the dominant specter of Communism has begun to wane, and change is on the horizon. However, Stefan is a target, as there has been something he hasn’t told Anne. The police are content to inform Anne that Stefan was a Spy for the Stasi. Anne is stuck in the middle, her guilt by association and her own actions could lead to a hard time. Unless she helps find The Matchmaker.

The Matchmaker is the latest in espionage nail biters from Author Paul Vidich (The Coldest Warrior). The absorbing drama/mystery takes hold of your attention as Anne’s plight unfolds. The looming fall of the Berlin Wall intertwined with the fate of Anne and the spy she’s tasked with finding make for a riveting read.
