Psychological thriller set around the MEDITERRANEAN
The Scientist of Berlin
From LA to Berlin, from present day to the 1940s, journey from glamorous Santa Monica to the deepest darkest corners of Nazi Germany.
David Collins, a British private investigator living in LA, is hired by Geoff Hoffman, a billionaire tech magnate running for the US Senate in California. As his campaign is threatened by rumours of a past scandal, Hoffman tasks David with discovering the truth. And soon David uncovers troubling facts – ones that lead back as far as Hoffman’s Jewish grandfather during World War II.
An alternating narrative contrasts the dark, depraved world of Nazi Germany with the corporate, sun-scorched landscapes of Los Angeles in 2019.
As these two stories come together, we become engulfed in a gripping combination of contemporary thriller and historical novel.
Daniel masterfully weaves themes of identity, belonging, and heritage into a historical thriller peppered with revelations.
