5.0 out of 5 stars THE EMPEROR of LIES, 2 Jun. 2013
An amazing book. Written with touches of magic realism entirely appropriate for the unreal atmosphere of the ghetto, so hard to imagine for those who, fortunately, never experienced this 'other world' existence. The author shows great artistic skill in capturing this barely imaginable atmosphere. Rumkowski will always remain a controversial figure but it must be remembered Lodz Ghetto survived longer than any other ghetto and there were survivors. Some will tell you they owe their lives to him. Is it for us to judge? Morality is a luxury in the netherworld of ghetto life. Nevertheless, this book is a great 'artistic' achievement, brilliant, spellbinding.

1.0 out of 5 stars Heartless, 6 April 2010
Dreadful. In the same vain as the original 'Penny Dreadfuls' that originated on the streets of London to entice people to read lurid abridged crime stories for tittilation. This is the kind of book written under pressure for money. It is obvious the author had little access to anyone (outside of law enforcement) who could really give insight into the people involved in this tragedy. Even worse are the pages and pages of ramblings of details of other unrelated crimes for no other purpose than to fill pages. Sentimental and gut wrenching about the victims,
no grey shades or psychological examination of the villain, for instance, Aspergers has been put forward as a possible reason for some of the strange behaviour of Entwistle. Hopefully, there will be an in-depth insightful book written about this terrible crime but this is not the one. (Johnathan Raban has written an excellent article that provides more insight than this book).
