Description-
  • In the volatile and shifting political atmosphere of Eastern Europe after World War II, an inexperienced homicide detective fresh out of the academy is assigned a homicide that no one wants to solve.

    Set in a bombed-out city in an unnamed country formerly occupied by the Germans and now by the Russians, the story follows Emil Brod as he unravels the threads of the cover-up of a brutal murder, while supporting his grandparents—his only family—in the equally brutal city.

About the Author-
  • Olen Steinhauer was raised in Virginia and Texas and attended Emerson College. He was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship that enabled him to live in Romania for ten months and provided the impetus for a lifelong fascination with Eastern Europe. He currently lives in Hungary.

Reviews-
  • —John Blazina, FennFocus Reps Picks "Steinhauer makes you smell the murky sewers and feel the damp chill of the dark alleys as Emil works to solve the case. This is a finely-formed novel that evokes all of the desperation, intrigue, and bloody-mindedness that was post-war Europe, but it also brings to life the spirit of those people, who not only survived those horrible years but went on to build new lives."
  • AudioFile "...Ned Schmidtke's deep, authoritative voice suits the story. He never gets in front of the action. Instead, he supports this atmospheric tale with well-paced, even reading and a few carefully chosen vocal mannerisms for the main characters. A moody, involving listen."
