New York, NY – ADELAIDE BOOKS is proud to present the latest work by Dorothe D. Kress - The Risk: Love behind the Iron Curtain

A thriller of a story, this book begins slowly and calmly, and builds with powerful tension to an uncertain ending. Based on a true story, Kristina has grown up in the German Democratic Republic (East Germany), comfortable and unquestioning of the totalitarian system that governs and controls her life. Being a model citizen, the terror of the Secret Police, Stasi, has always been only a quietly frightening background noise in her otherwise peaceful, productive life. But when she falls in love with an American man, the Stasi begins to take increased interest in her and her frequent visitor. When she decides to leave the GDR, she discovers just how all powerful, arbitrary and menacing a police state can be for those who challenge the system. A great read that you will not want to put down until the suspense filled end. This compelling love story is inspired by the author’s own file the Stasi of East Germany kept on her.

Dorothe D. Kress, herself a former citizen of East Germany, weaves an accurate depiction of East German life with the frightening actions of the Stasi into a suspenseful story of love behind the Iron Curtain.
