あらすじ・解説

Berlin, 1930. Sound film is conquering the big screen, leaving many by the wayside: producers, cinema owners - and silent film stars. Investigating the violent on-set death of actress Betty Winter, Inspector Gereon Rath encounters the dark side of glamour and an industry in turmoil.

When his father requests that he help his friend, the mayor of Cologne, Konrad Adenauer, and his ex-girlfriend, Charly, makes a renewed attempt at rapprochement, things start to get out of hand. Trapped in the machinations of rival film producers, he roams Berlin's Chinese quarter and the city's underworld as he works ever closer to the edge of legality. Meanwhile the funeral of the murdered Horst Wessel leads to clashes between Nazis and Communists.

Great detective story, great narration!

I watched the TV series and it was excellent. But I love the books! It’s hard to find good old fashioned detective stories; the Gereon Rath series fits the bill! I highly recommend these books by Volker Kutscher.

Silent Death: complex and intriguing

As with Babylon Berlin by the same author, there are many threads to this story and some patience is required before the various components come together in an intriguing whole. The narrator does well with the German terms. I read part of the book in German first but prefer to listen. If one likes the novels of Robert Harris and Philip Kerr this one too will surely please.

Silent Death

Silent Death is full of twists and turns, unfortunately most of them are well sign-posted but even then our 'hero' cannot see them as he stumbles from one farcical situation to another. Perhaps this is because he is too busy worrying about a previous girlfriend, "does she love me", "who is that bloke she was with" blah-blah. How this guy ever got to be a Detective Inspector is probably the biggest mystery of the book.

If only no one has seen Lethal Weapon...

The book is a little above the average police thriller but main character is a stark idiot who doesn’t have any respect for the job he is doing and who thinks the ends justify the means. He puts his and the lives of others in danger, he puts the due process in danger and all the other kinds of bad boyness...

I guess since the late 80s, we have been exposed to such characters that the Rath character feels very cartoonish and predictable.

Silent Death is a really enjoyable listen

Silent Death is Gereon Rath's second outing in English (translated from the original German) in Silent Death Gereon Rath and the other members of A Division, Berlin Homicide are called in to investigate the deaths of several actresses who are transitioning from silent to talking movies. 


As with the first novel in the series, Babylon Berlin, the narrative twists and turns so that you are not sure who or why the murders have been committed right until the end of the novel. Volker Kutscher manages intertwine several interesting sub-plots which adds to the narrative.


Silent Death is a great listen, it's one of the few books I've read from cover in in sitting - truly excellent. Mark Meadows does a great job if narration

great listen

very good story and 1930s Berlin scenery is an excellent setting. Narrators pronunciation of German place names and transformation of German accents in English accents is quite funny and for me (German national) actually makes this an even better listen.
