A Darker State with David Young


An exciting, interactive talk with David Young, who will be discussing the real-life stories behind his Karin Müller series of crime thrillers set in East Germany in the mid 1970s, including his latest release ‘A Darker State’.

David, former BBC World journalist and now full-time author, will be sharing his research, settings, Stasi videos and other photos depicting East German life.

‘A Darker State’ is a skilfully-woven, labyrinthine and intensely gripping tale, chock-full of intrigue, double-crossing and infidelity.
