For 15-year-old Michael Berg, a chance meeting with an older woman leads to far more than he ever imagined.The woman in question is Hanna, and before long they embark on a passionate, clandestine love affair which leaves Michael both euphoric and confused.For Hanna is not all she seems. Years later, as a law student observing a trial in Germany, Michael is shocked to realize that the person in the dock is Hanna.The woman he had loved is a criminal.Much about her behaviour during the trial does not make sense.But then suddenly, and terribly, it does - Hanna is not only obliged to answer for a horrible crime, she is also desperately concealing an even deeper secret.'A tender, horrifying novel that shows blazingly well how the Holocaust should be dealt with in fiction.A thriller, a love story and a deeply moving examination of a German conscience'INDEPENDENT SATURDAY MAGAZINE
