Book Details

Heinz Bauer is an ordinary man caught up in the Nazi terror which swept Germany. Career detective turned Gestapo officer, he works the system to protect his family and survive the war.

When an opportunity presents itself, Heinz escapes to the family farm to hide, but his past haunts him and danger abounds. His wife, Henni, wounded by her own experiences of the war shuts him out to his increasing despair and bitterness.

The longed-for end of hostilities fails to bring peace and stability as Germany lies in ruins with thousands of homeless and displaced persons scraping together the means of survival. How can a functioning society ever emerge from this chaos?

With his Gestapo background, Bauer is now a target for Allied forces. Can he escape justice, and can he ever be reconciled to his beloved wife?

Above all, as he tries to piece together his shattered life, is he ready to face the truth about the man is he and the decisions he has made? Or will he remain cocooned in his complacency?

After is a fast-moving, compelling story of a family threatened by annihilation yet bound by ties of love and loyalty.
