    "Good historical mystery"

    Okay, I did fast-forward through Hitler's speeches, but I thought Kellerman did a good job creating the atmosphere of pre-WWII Germany. That atmosphere is critical to the story. The protagonist is a German who despises Hitler and who must conduct his investigation in the face of bigotry that infuses the police force as well as as the general population. The novel may not appeal to Kellerman's regular readers but will be enjoyable for readers who enjoy historical mysteries.

    "Not her best"

    I generally like this writer. Her writing is clear and her stories engaging. This one dragged on and on. It was all bed Germans good Jews, look how they suffered. The story was weak and the characters way too ordinary.

    "Blech!"

    I expect a lot better from Faye Kellerman. This book is really depressing and there seems to be no point to it at all. I am quite surprised because I love her Dekker/Lazarus mysteries. I would have guessed this was an early book, but it's 2005!

    "SID Review"

    Disturbing on many levels but puts you in the time and place.
