Rezension:

"Remarkable... Superbly anchored in place and time. A brilliant, evocative novel, a gripping hard-nosed authentic thriller" (Peter Millar The Times)

" The Valley of Unknowing is simply superb: affecting but never melodramatic, literary but never less than thrilling." ( Financial Times)

"A remarkable novel, the first in English to give us a nuanced portrait of life in Communist East Germany, its absurdity, its menace, and its pervasive sense of betrayal" (Joseph Kanon, author of The Good German)

" Amadeus meets The Lives of Others in a compelling story of jealousy and betrayal behind the Iron Curtain" ( Kirkus (starred review))

"Sington brilliantly captures what life in East Germany must have been like... Perfect" ( Chasingbawa)

Vom Verlag:

In the twilight years of Communist East Germany, Bruno Krug, a womanising 'People's Champion of Art and Culture' who once penned a world-famous novel, falls for Theresa Aden, a music student from the West. But Theresa has also caught the eye of a cocky young scriptwriter who delights in satirising Bruno's more recent, tamer offerings.

Asked to appraise a mysterious manuscript, Bruno is disconcerted to find that the author is none other than his rival. Worse than that the book is good - very good - but also subtly subversive. If his pursuit of Theresa is to end in triumph, Bruno decides he must employ a small deception. However, in the paranoid labyrinth of a police state, knowing the deceiver from the deceived, the betrayer from the betrayed isn't just difficult - it's a matter of life and death.
