“Brilliant . . . . Kraus . . . is an attractively complex lead. [For] fans of cerebral murder mysteries.”
―Publishers Weekly [starred review]
“To call this book enjoyable or satisfying feels wrong, because the deeds are so ugly. But it’s terrifying and worthy. Human nature has never looked so raw.”
―Kirkus Reviews [starred review]
“Grossman brings Willi and Weimar Berlin vividly to life in this gripping mystery. This should thrill readers of procedural and forensic crime fiction as well as those interested in this time period.”
“All-stops-out action scenes . . . melded with a subtle and fascinating look at Jews in Berlin just before the Nazi menace took hold for good.”
“This is a complex, multi-layered, and beautifully written novel that does an equally fine job of telling a tale and providing historical context.”
―Jewish Book World
“Invokes the past in a masterful and authentic way. . . . [His first novel] received many accolades, and Grossman proves [that] was no fluke.”
