For 15-year-old Michael Berg, a chance meeting with an older woman leads to far more than he ever imagined. The woman in question is Hanna and before long, they embark on a passionate, clandestine love affair which leaves Michael both euphoric and confused. For Hanna is not all that she seems.Years later, as a law student observing a trial in Germany, Michael is shocked to realise that the person on the dock is Hanna. The woman he has loved is a criminal. Much about her behaviour during the trial does not make sense. But then suddenly and terribly, it does - Hanna is not only obliged to answer for a horrible crime, she is also desperately concealing an even deeper secret.

Bernhard Schlink was born in Germany in 1944. A professor of law at the University of Berlin and a practising judge, he is the author of the major international bestselling novel THE READER, as well as several prize-winning crime novels. He lives in Bonn and Berlin.
