Behind the Berlin Wall, dissident turned investigator Martin Grobe is on the trail of a killer - but is there something bigger at stake?
After forty years of dictatorship it's time for a change. The 1989 revolution in East Germany led to economic collapse and a failed takeover attempt by the West.
Four years on, the people of East Germany are building a utopian society. But when the crushed body of a prominent politician is found a constitutional crisis erupts - Martin needs to find the links before the young republic breaks up.
Gritty and realistic but hopeful, Stealing the Future gives the traditional crime and spy thriller a revolutionary twist.
