About the Book

For years, Major Sophie Decker has had to live with the memories of a terrible childhood in Communist East Germany, and an alcoholic father who worked for the Stasi secret police, who sexually abused her. Those memories made her into the ruthless government agent she is today with no conscience, working for the German state. The anger and the impotence she felt when she was younger is now driving her forward with a vengeance.

But on a mission to the German city of Weimar, suppressed memories start flooding back, and long-forgotten dark family secrets are about to rear their ugly head again. As Sophie Decker goes on the rampage to exact revenge and finally find out the truth, she proves one thing.

The past never stays in the past. There are some secrets that refuse to die.

Another excellent Sophie Decker story, this time exposing her past and how she grew into the person we know. For a while since it was a short story I was afraid you were going to leave the reader hanging without Sophie's revenge! I wish it had been slower!
