5.0 out of 5 stars It did not help them that all of these disparate people thoroughly hated the others 11 July 2014
By spartcus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The only reason I gave this a rating of 5 is because I have read the first book of this series, "The man from Berlin". I gave that one a 4. Put them together for a four and a half. I believe that both of these novels deserve that rating.I think that the subject , Hauptman Gregor Reinhardt, is going to be fated for a postwar (WW2) career much the same as Phillp Kerr's Bernie Gunther. Mr McCallin's two books concern Yugoslavia under the Nazi occupation and practically allow the reader to predict the path that was ahead for that late one time kingdom. The country was a product of the Versailles treaty that grouped several major religions and at least 10 ethnic groups into one kingdom that was doomed to fail. It did not help them that all of these disparate people thoroughly hated the others. The author handles these matters with skill. The description of the war in that place is accurate I enjoyed reading both books and look forward to further readings.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best ever.... 9 July 2014
By James Baker@Cassie E. Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Outstanding novel in every way possible. One the very few five star ratings I have ever given on Amazon. First, let me say that this is not a book for the squeamish or faint of heart. Very harsh times in Sarajevo during WWII and Mr. McCallin's writing has the reader right there in the thick of it. If you enjoy WWII based fiction that is so closely based on fact that you actually believe it is all true, then this is the book for you.
I suggest that you read the first book, "The Man From Berlin" before this one so that Capt. Reinhardt's journey remains in context.
The one and only downside is that we are probably going to have wait almost a year for the next book !!! Alan Furst would love this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars return to Sarajevo 17 July 2014
By Frank J. Konopka - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
After an absence of two years, during which he was interrogated by the Gestapo and then sent to become a member of the dreaded German Army police force, Gregor Reinhardt must return to Sarajevo, the source of many of his problems, as revealed in the first book in this excellent series "The Man From Berlin". He comes across brutal killings, missing soldiers, and a cloud of secrecy hovering over everything.

It is march 1944, and the German Army and their allies are retreating from Eastern Yugoslavia, pursued by the Communist Partisans. This book brings back many characters, both good and bad, from the first book as they interact with Reinhardt, and try to help, or hinder him, in his personal investigation into a massacre of civilians and the disappearance of a number of members of an army penal battalion.

Reinhardt spends a lot of time in internal reflection, always wondering if he is doing the right thing, and what is going to happen in the future. The plot roars along quite quickly and drags the avid reader with it. Once the book comes to a close and the grisly events are solved and some loose ends cleared up, the reader just knows that Reinhardt will be back in another book, this one more than likely taking him through the end of the war, and then its aftermath. I, for one, can hardly wait!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Beautifully Written Book on Serejvo in the Closing Days of German Occupation During World War Ii 16 July 2014
By Jeffrey J. Ward - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the author's second novel about Yugoslavia in World War Ii. "Pale House" and his first novel "Man From Berlin" both focus on short periods of time surrounding events during the German occupation of Yugoslavia, centered around Sarajevo. By the end of the second book featuring German soldier and detective Reinhardt, we are in the final few weeks of the war, but I hope there is one more book before this series reaches its conclusion. The author has spent time in the Balkans doing humanitarian relief work for the UN. as has been noted in reviews of his first two novels, he insists upon historical accuracy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptionally good 13 July 2014
By Michael W. Drafke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mr. McCollum takes you right to the scene in a way only the best authors can. There is nothing contrived or forced in either of the first two Reinhardt novels, they both seem thoroughly authentic. The first novel was so good I pre-ordered the second while only halfway through the first. Now my only regret is having to wait for the third!
