Taras Buslenko, a Ukrainian special-forces commander, prepares his undercover unit for a "black" operation into Cologne. Their aim: to end the rule of an ex-pat Ukrainian crime-boss. Three paths converging on Cologne at Carnival at a time when the world is traditionally turned on its head. Fabel once more faces his greatest enemy: the true Master of the Carnival.
I loved Brother Grimm so I had to try this one. It is not quite as gripping but still a great thriller with some disturbibg twists and turns.
Once again Craig Russell does not fail to dissapoint. Following on from Blood Eagle it was good to get involved in previous story lines with the addition of a new case. Fast and Pacey.
As usual Sean Barrats Naration second to none.

Good story with interesting characters. Nice to have a novel set in Germany. Good to travel without leaving home. Some weaknesses in the story drop a star, but time listening was reasonably well spent

Well worth a listen
I am well and truly hooked on the Fabel series. Another fab book from Craig Russell. More twists and turns and really enjoying getting to know the characters.
Already on the next book in the series which I am also really getting into.
Thoroughly recommended series if you enjoyed the Wallander books by Henning Mankell.
