Oktober Heat
It's 1958, and the Cold War has arrived in the once sleepy towns of the West German countryside. Walter Hofmann, a young German police officer, wants nothing more than to dance to the latest rock 'n' roll tunes at the nearby American air base. But the girls flock to the easy-going GIs, their dollars, and their fancy cars. When Walter finds the body of a young woman near the base, the military arrests Walter's GI friend Jeff for murder. Walter believes in Jeff's innocence, even after he learns that Jeff has won the heart of the girl he secretly adores. While Walter and his partner are on the trail of an elusive killer, his sister disappears and Walter races to her rescue before she might become the next victim.
Reviews
Pittsburgh City Paper

"...Stylistically more Hardy Boys than hardboiled, but the real attraction is Dumrauf's sensitive rendering of postwar Germany, where a community of war widows and financially struggling young Germans copes with a sudden influx of American military personnel, with their ready cash and rock 'n' roll records."

--Pittsburgh City Paper

Singing Librarian Books

"Author Doris Dumrauf has written a captivating story of adventure and mystery that includes kidnappings of police men and a police man's sister, as well as a murder in her historical fiction novel, Oktober Heat. Taking place in 1958 Germany on an U.S. army base, this novel is filled with rich characters and a well-developed plot line that readers will enjoy. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy a deeply developed historical fiction."
