The Foreign Spy

Titus Müller brings a part of German-German history so tangibly to life that it touches the heart. Yet he does so in a way that is fresh, vivid, and also empathetic. This alone would make the book a special reading experience, but there’s more. It is also unbelievably exciting!

– Kerstin Burlage, Bremen2

The devious cat and mouse games between the various intelligence services are fun to read.

– Haiko Kàcserik-Maczek, Filmtick

Well researched [...]. Due to numerous unexpected twists, the plot [is] not predictable. The tension continuously ratchets up, which is undeniably beneficial for a spy novel.

Like always, Müller has done exacting research [...]. His contemporary historical novel is quite exciting. The experience feels up close and personal.

Exciting, intriguing, and fascinating: cast your eyes on a clear depiction of recent German history that changed our country forever.

Convincingly based on well-researched historical knowledge. ... An homage to Carl von Ossietzky, publicist of the World Stage [Weltbühne], who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1936 and died in 1938 as a result of his imprisonment in a concentration camp.

– Uta Biestmann-Kotte, Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung

Thrillingly narrated, and yet also a highly interesting lesson on history. Our reading tip of the week!

– Sabine Hickmann, Radio Zwickau

With this novel, Titus Müller has succeeded in a marvelous and colorful portrait of the 1920s. The thrilling history of betrayal is stylishly told, but actually revolves around con men. Due to this, it is especially relevant today.

Buch der Woche von Matthias Zehnder in Zusammenarbeit mit Bider & Tanner, Basel

A fascinating panorama arises of Germany at the turning point from the 1920s to the 30s [...] with insightful depictions of people from this time.

Titus Müller is a lively and at the same time very precise narrator.

– Cornelia Geissler, Berliner Zeitung

Exciting historical drama ... The fast-paced and thrilling way in which Müller plays with reality is not far from the tragic truth.

– Steffen Könau, Mitteldeutsche Zeitung

An authentic novel about the uprising of 17 June.

– SUPERillu

An excellent, sweeping novel that veritably sucks the reader into the past and leaves them feeling as if they were at the heart of the action. This is due on the one hand to the subject matter, which is still relatively ›untouched‹ and exciting in itself, and on the other to the author’s storytelling, which manages to whisk the reader away and take them through the events in a manner only very few writers can achieve.

– Birgit Borloni, Histo-Couch.de

A magnificent novel.

– Biggi Müller, Belgischer Rundfunk BRF1

Titus Müller creates impressive three-dimensional characters in his protagonists.

– Claudia Schmid, Kriminetz

Berlin, Land of Fire

The recently published novel »Berlin, Land of Fire« is packed with historical insight about the German capital. Titus Müller has succeeded in writing a highly entertaining historical novel set at the time of the March Revolution.

– Jochen Kienbaum, RBB Fernsehen, »Abendschau«

One of this novel’s great strengths is how the historical characters are genuinely brought to life by their personalities and their actions – one example being Prussian king Friedrich Wilhelm IV. ... With the extremely intensified events and exact descriptions of the milieu, Müller succeeds in creating a historical snapshot that simply shines.

– Patric Seibel, NDR Kultur

This historical novel is most enjoyable when it is portraying the city itself, which at the time was home to some 400,000 souls. How it bubbles and seethes at every corner, how more and more Berliners gather to protest despite a ban on public assemblies, ultimately in their tens of thousands at the Tiergarten.

– Peter Zander, Berliner Morgenpost

The March revolution, before so distant, here becomes something up close.

– Hella Kaiser, Der Tagesspiegel

Müller combines carefully researched historical and political contexts, a credible love story and a gripping plot.

– Elisabeth Dietz, BÜCHER

It is interesting to read about life in the City Palace, which includes political intrigue and the folly of the powerful.

– Kajsa Niehusen, Zitty

Atmospherically dense and very gripping ... In his novel Titus Müller tells of the first days of the March Revolution of 1848. ... Thus is how history entertains.

– Cathrin Brackmann, WDR4


Titus Müller skillfully connects his disparate narrative threads – the exactingly researched events from the war with the private fates of the characters, the fictive spy novel with the gruesome reality.

– Margarete von Schwarzkopf, NDR1

Titus Müller uses his characters’ moving fates to render a key moment of German history tangible.

– Elena Zay, Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung

A gripping, well-constructed novel with real, historical background. Read something marvelous! Two thumbs up!

– Cathrin Brackmann, WDR4

Not only does the way Titus Müller addresses the dramatic events make for breathtaking reading, but it is fascinating to note how tremendously close he is to his characters.

– Andrea Herdegen, Frankenpost

With »Nighteye«, Titus Müller has written a wonderful historical novel which on the one hand is a gripping spy thriller; on the other it is a touching love story amidst the horror that is inspired by true events.

– Sibylle Peine, Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa

Titus Müller’s »Nighteye« is a towering accomplishment that need not hide behind titans of the genre such as Robert Harris.

– Florian Launus, Westdeutsche Zeitung

Two stories: one highly exciting, one highly emotional.

– Marion Seemann, WDR Fernsehen, »Lokalzeit«

Dance Beneath the Stars

Two very different people come together and start afresh, having found each other in the face of catastrophe: Müller proves himself to be a silver-tongued spinner of tales.

– Hamburger Abendblatt

The daily life on board the famous ship provides the meat for Müller’s tale, even more than Hensen’s »Psalm at Journey’s End«. Anyone who wants to learn more about the luxury liner and her catastrophic end will get their money’s worth.

– Schweizer Radio DRS1

Thrillingly worked-out details.


The meticulously researched details breathe so much live into Müller’s story as he sketches out an image of Berlin on the eve of the First World War.

– Wiesbadener Kurier

Titus Müller understands brilliantly how to artistically weave the threads and figures of his story into a portrait of the period.


The tale dances gracefully between a love story, a drama, a social documentary, and other genres, including the detective novel. Outstanding entertainment, splendidly narrated, gripping up to the final page!
