Atmospheric Swedish mystery. Great plot and characters. Keeps you guessing. Didn't want it to end.
Rollicking good story! Both a suspenseful mystery and a lesson in history.
The author has created memorable characters and shows us what life in a 16th century Bavarian village was like. A time of ignorance, superstition and brutality. Fortunately the characters here have some common sense! He uses real locations and some real events to weave an engrossing story.
Unusual and facinating account of Americans in Germany at one of the most horrifying times in modern history, the 1930's. The events that we have read about were brought to life for me as no other book has done. The back story of all the events surrounding the war, the diplomatic wrangling, the hardships of the German people, the absurdity and the tragedy of the Nazi propaganda is well told here.
It is a lesson in American history as well and we don't look so good in hindsight.
I thought that the reader was only fair. His tone was mostly flat and at times he sounded sort of sing songy.
The reader of this audio version is excellent. Audio and print versions are both good for different reasons. Can't prefer one over the other.
Definitely unputdownable! Lots of twists and turns.
Gripping delivery and great accent!
I would definitely get more books by this author and also look for books read by Robin Sachs.
