5.0 out of 5 stars Breslau, 1919, 27 Oct 2013
This review is from: Phantoms of Breslau: An Eberhard Mock Investigation (Eberhard Mock Investigation 3) (Paperback)
The First World War has only finished the year before but Breslau (modern day Wroclaw), is about to find that even without war there is still unrest, bitterness and killing. Eberhard Mock is being taken off of his duties with Vice, to help the Murder Commission investigate a particularly gruesome killing. Four men found with broken bones, their eyes gouged out, and wearing just sailor hats and leather thongs are found in the open, with a note to Mock. As Mock joins the team with his trusted sergeant, Kurt Smolorz, it soon becomes apparent that when Mock interviews someone they turn up dead, with the same challenge left for Mock.

Being pulled off the case and sent back to Vice, what can Mock do? Being the ruthless Eberhard Mock, there is only one thing to do - tackle the case without the sanction of his superiors. Once again Breslau is brought meticulously to life as we follow along on this dark and disturbing case. Mock may be already suffering sleepless nights, but worse is to come. As we go back to 1919 Breslau we are taken into the world of the demi-monde, along with charlatans, conspiracies, the occult, and madness. Mock definitely has to have his wits about him as he tries to outwit his adversary, but who is pulling the strings?

Once again Marek Krajewski has produced a story that is dark, disturbing and gritty, and most definitely makes for a compelling read. One of the reasons this story is so enthralling is in the way that Krajewski shows us the contrasts between old thoughts and beliefs, versus newer ones i.e. occultism and the newer psycho-analysis. If you want to take a walk on the dark side of life, then Mock will take you there in his investigations.
