Berlin. 1961. Two months after the Wall. And the Cold War is threatening to boil over.
It is an especially uneasy time at The Cabin, a joint US-West German listening station. Its agents failed to see the Wall coming. And now the East Germans and their Soviet allies are making new, aggressive moves.
Then, CIA cryptographer Wallace Reed decodes the latest message from the double agent known as Longshore - and the crisis escalates. Has Longshore been caught? Suborned? Murdered? Or, the worst possibility of all - is he trying to send a secret code to a mole in Reed's own office, sabotaging their intelligence and sending reports back to the other side?
Ghost Station is a tense thriller about espionage, cryptography, and paranoia, set in the earliest days of the Berlin Wall. Can Reed trust Longshore? His boss? His lover? Can he find the truth behind the lies - or will Berlin become ground zero for a world-ending war?
