"[W]ell-crafted....Karp's meticulous research helps create a vivid picture of the time and locale. Memorable, authentic characters are another plus." - (Publishers Weekly)
Well researched novel with hardly a real emotion to be found. Characterizations are melodramatic, occasionally almost cartoonish, not helped by comic opera narration and some painfully bad accents. Not recommended.
