Reunited in post-WWII Germany, two brothers are caught in a deadly mystery in this “hard-hitting tale of international intrigue” (Ben Pastor, author of Tin Sky).
 
Munich, 1946: Even in a city still recovering from the war, murder is still murder. But when Irina—a Cossack refugee—confesses to killing a GI, American Captain Harry Kaspar isn’t buying her story. His investigation brings him to a man he considered dead—his long-lost brother, Max, who had returned to the Hitler’s Germany before the war.
 
Max may have an unforgiveable past, but now he needs Harry for a cause that could redeem him: rescuing Irina’s clan of Cossacks who have been disowned by the Allies and are now being hunted by Soviet death squads.
 
As a harsh winter looms and the Soviets close in, Harry and Max plan a desperate rescue attempt on a remote stretch of the German-Czech border, where loyalties will be tested, allies will become enemies, and the grave secrets and furious hatreds sown during the war threaten to damn them all in “this masterful story of redemption found within the brutalities of postwar realpolitik” (Kirkus Reviews).

A #1 New York Times bestseller, Wall Street Journal Best Book of the Year, and soon to be a major motion picture, this unforgettable novel of love and strength in the face of war has enthralled a generation.

With courage, grace, and powerful insight, bestselling author Kristin Hannah captures the epic panorama of World War II and illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen: the women's war. The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France—a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women. It is a novel for everyone, a novel for a lifetime.
