Behind the Berlin Wall a dissident is on the trail of a killer
1993. After forty years of communist rule it’s time for change in the GDR.
Direct democracy, citizen’s movements and de-centralization are part of the new political landscape.
But when a politician’s crushed body is found a constitutional crisis erupts.
Former dissident, Martin Grobe, is caught up in an investigation that points towards the KGB, the Stasi and the West Germans—but is it really the start of a putsch against the new GDR, or just a murder?

You’ll find me in Berlin a lot, or if not there, look for me somewhere in Eastern Europe, doing research and looking for ideas for my next books.
And what did I do before I started writing? I used to work on Stasi and SED (East German Communist Party) files – mostly the stuff related to opposition movements in the GDR, and also looking at security on the Berlin Wall.
Since then I’ve been a social change trainer and facilitator.
And what have I written?
The current project is the EAST BERLIN SERIES of proto-utopian fiction set in a GDR that didn’t disappear in 1990:
· STEALING THE FUTURE is the first in that series, and
· THOUGHTS ARE FREE – the sequel is available in autumn 2016 (pre-order your Kindle ebook now).
I also co-wrote and edited:
· A CONSENSUS HANDBOOK and HOW TO SET UP A WORKERS’ CO-OP.
