Product Description

Review

'As noir as they get. Steeped in a rank air of cynicism and fear … this complex and atmospheric thriller will find many fans' Independent.

'A stylish, intelligent and original addition to the canon.' Financial Times.

'The city of Breslau is as much a character in this thriller as the parade of gothic loons that inhabit it.' Daily Telegraph.

'Reading like Saw would if it had been a book... macabre murder mystery.' Shortlist.

'Atmospheric and piquant period detail saturate the pages... Krajewski's lacerating narrative performs the key function of the skilful novelist: providing an entrée into a world far from our own' Barry Forshaw, The Times. 'An outrageously believable police detective' Peter Millar, The Times.

'Liable to live on in your dreams' John Williams, Mail on Sunday.

From the Back Cover

A man bound, gagged and sealed alive inside a wall to die. Another quartered, his fingers severed. One of the victims was a musician, the other a locksmith. The only detail that the killings have in common - apart from their abnormal savagery - is a page of a calendar with the day of the death marked in blood. To solve these bizarre murders, Criminal Councillor Eberhard Mock must search for answers in Breslau's underworld, a decadent demi-monde he knows all to well. As he pursues the investigation, his marriage is in decline. In revenge for his misdemeanours, Mock's wife embarks on a sexual odyssey of her own involving a mysterious figure who appears to be connected with the apocalyptic fever gripping the city and high society of Breslau in the late Twenties. Mock, himself the most ambiguous and complex of policemen, must confront a cult that preaches the imminent end of the world.
