Stasi Child – David Young

Stasi Child is a crime / political thriller set in East Germany in the mid-seventies.

I’m not sure what to make of it. It comes across as a bit stilted, a bit clunky, and there are some far-fetched scenes. I’m reminded of the abridged adventure and war novels my dad used to get from a book club back in the early sixties. However it’s well plotted and I was involved enough to see it through to the slightly disappointing ending.

It comes across as a first novel, which it is, but maybe I’ve outgrown crime / thriller / adventure books….
