Read full description of the books:
Reunited brothers confront a secret Allied betrayal in postwar Munich.
Occupied Munich, 1946: Irina, a Cossack refugee, confesses to murdering a GI, but American captain Harry Kaspar doesn’t buy it. As Harry scours the devastated city for the truth, it leads him to his long-lost German brother, Max, who returned to Hitler’s Germany before the war.
Max has a questionable past, and he needs Harry for the cause that could redeem him: rescuing Irina’s stranded clan of Cossacks who have been disowned by the Allies and are now being hunted by Soviet death squads—the cold-blooded upshot of a callous postwar policy.
As a harsh winter brews, the Soviets close in and the Cold War looms, Harry and Max desperately plan for a risky last-ditch rescue on a remote stretch of the German-Czech border. A mysterious visitor from Max’s darkest days shadows them. Everyone is suspect, including Harry’s lover, Sabine, and Munich detective Hartmut Dietz—both of whom have pledged to help. But before the Kaspar brothers can save the innocent victims of peace, grave secrets and the deep contempt sown during the war threaten to damn them all.
"There's enough action and mystery to keep the pages turning . . . all spun out in a masterful story of redemption . . . Classic noir shadowed by the hulks and rubble of the once-proud city of Munich, a character itself in this haunting tale . . . Anderson deserves a standing ovation." — Kirkus Reviews

Read information about the authorI'm the author of the Kaspar Brothers series (The Losing Role, Liberated, Lost Kin), Under False Flags, and other works centered on WWII and its aftermath. In The Other Oregon and the novella Rain Down, I write about my home state. I was a Fulbright Fellow in Germany and am a literary translator as well as a freelance editor. I live in Portland, Oregon.
More about me: Years ago, I planned to become a history professor. Then I discovered fiction writing — I could make stuff up, I realized, using history and research to serve the story. I write novels that introduce a little-known aspect of historical events, mixing in overlooked crimes, true accounts, and neglected underdogs.
I've also written narrative nonfiction, short stories and screenplays. I've worked in advertising, marketing, and journalism. I've been a waiter, a language instructor, a copywriter. Nowadays I work as a literary translator of German to English and as a freelance fiction editor.
I've spent time abroad, mostly in Europe, and lived in Germany. My most exciting memories include striking out into Eastern Europe with a backpack when the Berlin Wall came down.
I live in my hometown of Portland with my wife René. I've always been into soccer and follow my Portland Timbers FC.
